NCS Colour Scan
NCS Colour Scan 2.0 introduces new technology through a powerful, portable colour measurement tool - developed by X-rite in cooperation with NCS Colour AB. It offers a range of new features to help the user accurately read, use and implement colour, and now isolates colours within a multi-coloured pattern for developing matching or complementary colour palettes.
Lightweight, easy to use and infinitely adaptable, NCS Colour Scan 2.0 gives the NCS 1950 Original notation of a selected colour from any surface. You can identify colours on walls, render, carpets, furniture, flooring, and clothing.
- The built-in pinpoint screen can isolate colours from the smallest of patterns.
- Features memory for storing up to 100 colours and lets users add text or voice tags to each entry.
- Displays colour translation information into RGB and CMYK in seconds, and gives the colour’s availability and location in the NCS Index and Exterior.
- Reads lightness and LRV.
- Suggests similar colours to help create combinations on-the-go.
