Epson Introduces its First Spectrophotometer – the SD-10

Underscoring its commitment to print quality, Epson America today announced the Epson SD-10, the first Epson-built spectrophotometer. Designed to give SureColor® wide-format customers a tool to accurately measure color, the SD-10 is an easy-to-use and full-featured color measuring device. The SD-10 is a compact, battery-powered device that can be used stand-alone via the built-in LCD display or wirelessly connected to a smartphone through the mobile app to make critical color decisions on-the-go. Allowing users to elevate their color with a simple color management tool, the SD-10 is ideal for print shops, epson sd-10 spectrometerdesigners and salespeople to capture, reproduce and confirm colors with confidence.

“Many existing color workflows are labor intensive and communicating color can be arbitrary and subjective,” said Eric Holm, Professional Imaging, Epson America, Inc. “Well received by both textile and signage users for its simplicity to measure and communicate accurate color, the Epson SD-10 allows an entire team to speak the same color language, from the salesperson to the designer to the print department.”

Measuring colors accurately, consistently, and quickly, the SD-10 is easy-to-use, easy to carry, and its embedded battery allows for measurements to be taken virtually anywhere, anytime. The SD-10 features market-leading technology, including industry-standard measurement modes (M0, M1e, M2) and Epson’s advanced micro-electromechanical system (MEMS) technology, used to construct devices with sub-micron precision. Accuracy on textured surfaces is achieved via a large 7.6 mm aperture and 360-degree LED illumination reduces shadows and irregularities to increase accuracy of color measurements. A built-in LCD display makes standalone operation possible, allowing for quick viewing of a measured color’s L*a*b* value.  Additionally, the last two colors are always being compared and the delta-E value is displayed.

The Epson Spectrometer mobile app1 allows users to wirelessly connect to mobile devices where they can build custom color libraries, find similar PANTONE® colors and compare measured colors. The app can be used to see where a color stands in comparison to your printer’s ICC profile. Additional features include:

  • Wireless Bluetooth connectivity – Connect to a mobile device or computer using Bluetooth Low Energy technology
  • Large aperture for textured surfaces – 7.6 mm aperture measures up to 1.5 times the area covered by similar products, allowing for greater accuracy
  • Integration with Epson Edge® Print software – Directly measure and replace colors within the print workflow; connect via Bluetooth or USB
  • Build color libraries – Use the mobile app to create color palettes, find similar PANTONE colors and record measurements

Availability

The SD-10 spectrophotometer is now available through Epson Authorized Professional Imaging Resellers for $899 (MSRP). For additional information, visit www.epson.com/proimaging.
