CRI App and the Colorimetry Utility


CRI App

The PC-based software application is a streamlined, cross-platform, user-centric assistant used to perform all your colorimetric-based analysis. It provides a familiar workspace no matter which platform you are in. All the Colorimetry Research instruments come standard come standard with a built-in, easy-to-learn, English language command interpreter to control all aspects of its operation via a computer, tablet or smart device, making it easy for users to create their own software dedicated to perform specific measurement tasks or for inclusion in an Automated Test Environment.

Colorimetry Utility

The Colorimeter Utility is an accompanying tool that aids in updating, preserving and recovering the state of the instrument. It is also used to define a color correction based on the Four-Color Matrix Method Correction.

The Four-Color Matrix Method, developed by NIST improves the accuracy of tristimulus colorimeters for measurements of color displays and has been verified to be appropriate for CRTs, LCDs, and OLED displays.


Software Development Kit

The CRI colorimeters comes standard with a well documented, easy to learn, pseudo english language based, command interpreter to control all aspects of it’s operation using a computer, tablet or a smart device, making it a easy for customers to create their own software dedicated to perform specific measurement tasks or for inclusion in an Automated Test Environment. In addition, a fully documented communication and calculation libraries with numerous real world sample templates are included as starting points for building your own software tools using any of the modern computer development environments such as Visual Studio, Xcode etc.
LabVIEW driver available upon request.
