Macbeth ColorChecker is a unique test pattern scientifically designed to help determine the true color balance or optical density of any color rendition system. It is an industry standard that provides a non-subjective comparison with a “test pattern” of 24 scientifically prepared colored squares. Each color square represents a natural object—human skin, foliage, blue sky, etc, providing a qualitative reference to quantifiable values. Each color will reflect light in the same way in all parts of the visible spectrum, thus maintaining color consistency over different illumination options. Some applications include spectroscopy, machine vision, photography, graphic arts, electronic publishing, and television.
The Macbeth ColorChecker® chart provides an easy way to recognize and evaluate the many factors that can affect color reproduction. To evaluate the effect of varying any given factor, simply compare the chart’s color image to the actual ColorChecker®. It is ideal for testing and standardizing color inspection and analysis systems.
