basICColor DISCUS - Made To Measure

Monitor technologie has experienced a rapid development lately and now demands much more from a measurement instrument than before. Video, cinema, presentation, medical applications... require monitor instruments with highest precision, signal to noise ratio and longevity. 

basICColor DISCUS is made to measure for these demanding fields of application. The high-end colorimeter basICColor DISCUS offers the precision and flexibility of a lab-grade instrument in the compact design of a hand-held instrument.

  • The encapsulated optics and the thin-film glass filters of the sensor guarantee for long term stability of the mesurement values. Each instrument is calibrated individually and can be recertified over and over. This ensures that you can use basICColor DISCUS perpetually as a dependable master tool and a reference instrument
  • The built-in temperature sensor in basICColor DISCUS compensates for incremental heating during a measurement session. Thus you can be sure to get reliable and constant measurement values even in the critical dark areas.
  • With a basICColor DISCUS you are equipped for all measurement tasks. It masters contact and tele measurement with laser pointer, as well as measurement of (ambient) light. Thanks to the intelligent design, the flat calotte is mounted in parallel with the paper surface. It can also be positioned rectangularly to the light source with the help of the laser pointer.
  • Loadable calibrations make for a guaranteed future – basICColor DISCUS is easily adaptable to any future display technology.
