Title (EN) SPECTROPHOTOMETER WITH DIGITAL CAMERA
(FR) SPECTROPHOTOMETRE A CAMERA NUMERIQUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Systems, methodologies, media, and other embodiments associated with color measuring are described. One exemplary system embodiment includes a spectrophotometer (100), one or more light sources (110) for illuminating an interior of the spectrophotometer (100), and a digital camera (105) configured at a port (125) of the spectrophotometer and being configured to measure light components from a sample (115). In the present invention, segmentation logic is provided for the spectrophotometer that is configured to employ computational image segmentation to characterize specular reflection from a sample and to characterize a selected patch or portion from the test sample, such as a selected color in a multicolor pattern. In accordance with the present invention, the spectrophotometer (100) and the included digital camera (105) may be color-characterized in situ.
(FR)L'invention concerne des systèmes, des procédés, des supports et autres variantes qui se rapportent à la mesure de la couleur, par exemple un spectrophotomètre, une ou plusieurs sources lumineuses éclairant un espace interne de cet appareil, et une caméra numérique à un accès de l'appareil permettant de mesurer les composantes de la lumière à partir d'un échantillon. On décrit une logique de segmentation pour l'appareil, à segmentation d'image informatique permettant de caractériser la réflexion spéculaire à partir d'un échantillon et de caractériser une partie spécifique à partir de l'échantillon d'essai, du type couleur spécifique dans un motif multicolore. L'appareil et sa caméra peuvent être à caractérisation par couleur in situ.
