Matching PANTONE SMART system under different lighting conditions - Pantone.com

Can PANTONE SMART Swatches be matched under different lighting conditions?

Yes, SMART colors can be matched under any light source. These colors have been engineered for optimum color constancy. "Constancy" refers to how the color matches itself when lighting conditions change. For example, a color with high constancy would look very similar when viewed under D65, CWF and TL84 light sources. Though it is impossible to completely prevent color inconstancy, Pantone and Clariant expertly evaluate every dyestuff combination to minimize this effect. Of course, color management best practices dictate that you should always view your proposed color palette in the light box under your primary light source before finalizing. If you like the way the colors look under those conditions and your vendor matches their light flare characteristics, you should have good results.
