Instrument Systems Enables TM30-15 Conform SSL Measurements

In addition to classical color analysis, Instrument Systems’ SpecWin Pro software allows evaluations according to the new TM 30-15 method for evaluating the color rendition of light sources. Besides the two main characteristics, fidelity and gamut index, graphical analyses by Hue Bin tables and color vector graphics are also employed.

CRI has been the industry reference for decades when it comes to measuring the color quality of light. Nevertheless, CRI is a pure fidelity metric and does not convey exact color appearance e.g. saturated colors. Therefore, in 2015, the Illuminating Engineering Society published IES TM-30-15 as a new method for evaluating the color rendition of light sources. TM-30-15 is a more accurate fidelity and also a gamut metric with additional information and graphical representations.

In addition to classical color analysis, Instrument Systems’ SpecWin Pro software allows evaluations according to this new TM 30-15 method. Besides the two main characteristics, fidelity and gamut index, graphical analyses by Hue Bin tables and color vector graphics are also employed.
