UPRtek Launch the Revolutionary CV600 Spectral Colour Meter

d6381531-ea46-484d-9d7e-115149fd7e49

UPRtek have launched the CV600 Spectral Colour Meter- a professional device that measures colour, light and exposure. The CV600 is ideal for photographers, videographers and filmmakers that value colour accuracy and lighting consistency.

The handheld colour meter can save light readings and set-up information to a removable SD card, allowing you to build an external library of light readings and settings for use at a later date.

The compact, easy-to-use device has a wide range of metering modes that allow you to take the guess work out of lighting, which will drastically reduce set-up time. The spectrometer is perfect for creative professionals that require accurate lighting in studios and on location.

In basic mode, the CV600′s touch sensitive display panel can be set to display four user-selected points of measurement criteria, all on the same display. For example, among various display options, users can select:

83204143-8843-470c-b64a-fd279cfad981

  1. Correlated Colour Temperature (CTT) readings in degrees Kelvin
  2. Colour Rendering Index (CRI) readings across the colour spectrum from R1 to R15
  3. Television Lighting Consistency Index (TLCI) readings- the European Broadcast Union’s new colour measurement index for the 21st century
  4. Lux level readings

Advanced modes include CRI, Flicker, Filter, Exposure, Spectrum, TM-30 and CIE.

PANTONE launch new ‘Bates Motel Blue’

Screen Shot 2017-08-04 at 11.57.04

In celebration of Bates Motel, the contemporary prequel to the iconic film ‘Psycho’, PANTONE have team up with A&E networks to add a unique neon metallic shade of blue to their extensive range of colours.

The colour, named ‘Bates Motel Blue’, is a reference to the iconic Norman Bates, the main protagonist in Psycho whose favourite colour is the exhilarating shade of blue that was used to paint the iconic Bates Motel sign. Fans of the series will appreciate the symbolic nature of the colour, which is supposed to represent ‘truth’, whilst the show’s main themes are based upon mystery, lies and deceit.

The collaboration between PANTONE and A&E networks was a result of a desire to create a distinctive shade in a unique medium, in honour of this world renown pop culture icon. Considered the world’s most universally loved colour, the shade of blue used is meant to represent constancy and credibility, with users able to engage this colour with a character that holds a firm place in pop culture.

The Bates Motel Blue isn’t the first colour in the range with such a unique name, since PANTONE introduced the ‘Minion Yellow’ over two years ago, and have an eclectic range of colours with names such as ‘Fuzzy Wuzzy Brown’ ‘Razzle Dazzle Rose’ and ‘Macaroni and Cheese’.
