PANTONE Introduces New, Contemporary Light Booth For Accurate Color Identification

Desktop light booths deliver non-failing daylight, store and home lighting options for adequate identification of color variations and metameric effects

CARLSTADT, N.J., October 14, 2015 – Pantone, an X-Rite company and the global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industries, today introduced PANTONE 3 and PANTONE 5 Light Viewing Booths; new, contemporary light booth options that offer a controlled, consistent evaluation environment for the color identification process.

As color is susceptible to variances based on lighting, environment and visual perception, color evaluation under a variety of lighting conditions is essential for meeting specific manufacturing requirements and reducing metameric effects when two colors “match” under one set of lighting conditions, but fail in another. The PANTONE 3 and PANTONE 5 Light Viewing Booths help with adequate color identification early in the process, providing cost savings for production and optimizing time to market.

“As the provider of professional color standards for the design industries, Pantone understands how important a reliable and comprehensive process for visual evaluation is when making critical color choices,” said Barbara Senatore, Senior Color Specialist at Pantone. “Not only are the PANTONE 3 and PANTONE 5 Light Booths stylish and complementary to any workspace, they deliver non-failing daylight, store and home lighting options for adequate color identification, reducing the chance for errors and inconsistencies that can become costly problems in the product development phase.”

For designers across creative and manufacturing industries adding color evaluation to their production workflow, the PANTONE 3 and PANTONE 5 Light Booths are budget-conscious options that offer consistent, industry standard fluorescent illumination and neutral backgrounds for accurate color viewing.

Color evaluation under a variety of lighting conditions will lead to optimum results before reaching the retail market; testing and approval in the Light Booth test area, as well as outside, in a fluorescent-lit store, in the home and other natural settings is recommended to eliminate inconsistencies.
