Hue, Saturation, and Brightness
Hue is the fundamental Color itself such as Red, Green, Blue
Saturation is the shade of the Color typically 0-100%
Brightness is how light or dark the color presents
Each individual or plant operator sees color differently, which is why the CR100FF Colorimeter is important to maintain the targeted color in production. Manipulating Hue, Saturation and Brightness allow us to create a host of colors from the basic Primary and Secondary Colors.
Our eyes see color in Light waves, with the Primary Colors being Red, Green, and Blue.
Mixing Red and Green creates yellow.
Mixing Red and Blue Creates Magenta.
Mixing Blue and Green Creates Cyan.
Mixing equal parts of Red, Green and Blue Creates White light
The CR100FF Color Meter measures L* a* and b* to ensure repeatable product color by eliminating the subjective observation of human operators.
