|20140129179||SYSTEM AND APPARATUS FOR MULTI CHANNEL GLOSS MEASUREMENTS - The present invention is directed to an apparatus and method for determining a set of gloss measurement values of a sample to be measured. The invention includes a plurality of light sources having a light output, the plurality of sources configured to project light in the direction of a single sample having a gloss characteristic to be measured, wherein the planes of incidence of the light sources are arrayed at different azimuthal angles about the perpendicular direction of the sample. Furthermore, the invention includes a plurality gloss-sensitive sensors, each positioned at 180 degrees of azimuthal angle from the plurality of light sources so as to receive light reflected off a sample and output a plurality of measured gloss sample channel values and a processor configured to compare the outputs of the plurality of sample channel values and generate a plurality of angle-indexed gloss measurement values.||05-08-2014|
|20140055592||SYSTEM AND APPARATUS FOR COLOR CORRECTION IN TRANSMISSION-MICROSCOPE SLIDES - The present invention concerns a system and method for calibration and adjustment of the pixel color values represented within a digital image of a sample by a transmission microscope. Furthermore the present invention is directed to providing sufficient color information in order to generate a color mapping matrix that allows for the creation of a synthetic image to depict the sample under a desired illumination. The system and method provides a solution that generates a destination-device independent image that is configurable to any calibrated display device.||02-27-2014|
|20130293897||SYSTEM AND APPARATUS FOR MEASUREMENT OF LIGHT SCATTERING FROM A SAMPLE - An apparatus and method for providing a solution that enables technicians or other technical professionals to obtain accurate gloss, haze and DOI values for a reflecting sample due to the surface conditions of the sample. The apparatus and method allow for the generation of a data model of the surface of a sample using a sensor array designed to detect the divergence of a collimated beam of light reflected off the surface of the sample. The same principle enables technical professionals to obtain accurate haze and clarity values for a transparent or translucent sample that is trans-illuminated by light.||11-07-2013|
|20130154830||SYSTEM AND APPARATUS FOR GLOSS CORRECTION IN COLOR MEASUREMENTS - An apparatus and system for providing a solution that enables technicians or other technical professionals obtain both an accurate color value for a sample as well as an accurate gloss value while using a spectrophotometer and an integrated gloss meter device. The present invention allows for accurate color and gloss value analysis of samples using improved compensation values by using a reference sensor to correct the variations in intensity of a light source.||06-20-2013|
|20130044200||SYSTEM AND APPARATUS FOR THE CALIBRATION AND MANAGEMENT OF COLOR IN MICROSCOPE SLIDES - A system and apparatus for the color calibration of images recorded through a microscope. An integrated color calibration target microscope slide device and specimen are recorded with an imaging device that acquires both the color values of the specimen and the color values of the color calibration target under a plurality of illuminations and trans-illuminations. A composite image is formed to provide a spectral estimation of the relevant color values of the image. The image is converted into multi-stimulus values governed by a plurality of illuminating conditions. The multi-stimulus values are used to provide image calibration data so that color values of the image, when displayed on a display devices, are faithfully reproduced.||02-21-2013|
