How Illum Reader is working
Illum Reader is a function to analyse the light.
The purpose is to check the quality of your light into a viewing booths or in yours viewing conditions.
This function can be usefull to check uniformity , the color temperature and the light into a booth.
This function need a spectrophotometer to work (XRite Eye One Pro 1/2, XRite ColorMunki Photo or an XRite I1 Studio)
How to use Illum Reader
Into the main windows of Coloris, click on the Illuminant pictogram (the third icon on the upper left).
