SpectroPad Series 2


SpectroPad Series 2 is a revolutionary color measuring and process control device. This portable, professional spectrophotometer measures a wide variety of different reflective media used in professional digital printing (including large and wide format). Thanks to its independence from a computer, it can be used also directly on the printer. Its integrated touch display enables interaction with the device and provides instant measurement results.

DOC (Digital Output Control)

Easy Process Control for Digital Large Format Printing.
Barbieri DOC compares the actual print with a preset reference and gives immediate feedback if color values are within tolerance; without computer, directly on the large format printer. Get more information about DOC (Digital Output Control)

Image Quality

SpectroPad Series 2 is the first and only device, which enters into the field of image quality evaluations.
As a first, the SpectroPad Series 2 performs an evaluation for homogeneity (uniformity) on the print according to Fogra M-Score.

System requirements

Microsoft Windows XP or later (32 and 64 bit)
Mac OS X 10.5 or later (Intel)
