NODE+Chroma
The Chroma Module

Making real color digital, and digital color real.

For designers, manufacturers, retailers, and end users, a color is only as good as it is useful. NODE+Chroma scans any surface color into iOS and Android apps. For accurate matching, quality control, specification, and more, regardless of lighting conditions.

A NODE+ system.

NODE is a handheld, wireless, sensor platform that is transforming how we gather, process and use sensory data from the world around us. Combining advanced motion-sensing technology with interchangeable sensor modules to stream real-time information to any smart device.

At Variable, Inc., we’re dreaming of a day where a NODE sits in every home, classroom, factory and office—helping people make sense of the world.

The magic is in the module.

Chroma uses a special end-cap and LED light to compute true sRGB, CMYK, CIE L*a*b*, and Hex values, regardless of ambient light. Color information within 1% average difference from actual color values, when tested against MacBeth ColorChecker Calibration Target (measured under temperature 24°C ± 2°C). Consistency: < 0.80 deltaE reading to reading consistency of the same color under the same temperature.

NODE+chroma uses a special end-cap and LED light to compute true sRGB, CIE L*a*b*, and Hex values, regardless of ambient light. When color information is tested against MacBeth Color-Checker Calibration Target (measured under temperature 24°C ± 2°C ) there is better than 0.80 deltaE reading to reading consistency.

Color on the go.

NODE+Chroma makes color scanning and communication truly mobile, with a measurement area of 1.9 cm2, a measurement time of approx. 1 second, and Bluetooth connection to smart devices. The color graphic displayed on iOS or Android device is an approximate representation; exact color information is attained via numeric color data transmitted. Color collection and scan history are stored on the smart device.

The CHROMA Sensor requires the NODE platform and a compatible iOS device.

NODE is compatible with these devices:
