GTI Launches Light Viewing for Large Format
GTI Graphic Technology, a manufacturer of lighting systems for critical colour viewing, colour communication, and colour match assessment, has introduced a new Vertical Wall Viewing System, which is to be featured at the upcoming SGIA Expo taking place place from October 23 to 25 at the Orange County Convention in Orlando, Florida.
GTI’s new Vertical Wall Systems – a combination of overhead luminaires, viewing lamps, and accessories (wall panels, neutral gray paint, mounting options) – are ISO 3664:2009 D50-compliant for large-format vertical viewing.
GTI’s Graphiclite luminaires feature what the company describes as a parabolic lens design that provides light uniformity over a large vertical area. GTI luminaires utilize Graphiclite 100 Color Viewing Lamps that are engineered to provide balanced D50 light output. The system also includes mounting brackets and Munsell Neutral 8 gray wall steel panels.
“Output from today’s large format printers is excellent. However, the output often needs to be viewed in controlled lighting conditions in order to ensure that brand integrity and color fidelity is maintained,” stated Robert McCurdy, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at GTI. “GTI Wall Systems create an ISO 3664:2009 compliant viewing area that allows the viewer to stand as close as an inch in front of the artwork without a casting a shadow.”
During the SGIA Expo, GTI is also highlighting its SOFV-1xiQ software with a desktop viewing station and the iQ wireless light sensor. The sensor is used to automate the luminance match between a colour monitor and the viewing station. The viewing station features an integrated processor that enables wireless communication with the iQ sensor, automatic luminance matching, automatic calibration and ambient light monitoring ensuring that ISO 3664:2009 D50 color viewing standards are met.
The company is also exhibiting its SCV (Simultaneous Color Viewer), PDV (Professional Desktop Viewers), CRD (Color Rendition Demonstrator) and MiniMatcher Series of products at SGIA.
