The smart swatch tool for vision based remote colour assessment.
With DigiView, VeriVide introduces the new industry proven Smart Swatch tool to open the door to vision based remote colour assessment. With DigiView users can reduce assessment time from days and weeks to less than 24 hours.
DigiView enables users to:
- Reduce lead times
- Improve speed to market
- Reduce courier costs
- Minimise late production
- Gain a competitive advantage
Typical traditional colour submission time can take up to 15 days or sometimes even longer. Using DigiView can take less than 24 hours.
DigiView provides a quick and simple way of looking at colour submissions – saving valuable time and costs.
How does DigiView work?
We have developed a tool that allows remote colour assessment of virtually submitted samples to take place by following the below steps:
- Step 1: Batches are imaged with the DigiEye Imaging Cube together with their associated colour standards
- Step 2: Colour calibrated images are then sent to viewing stations at the retailers, where buyers simply open the images, and assess on screen the accuracy of the batch colour against the standard
- Step 3: Users can cut out the standards and move them over or adjacent to the corresponding colour area using smart tools within the DigiView software. This allows the user to remotely assess colour without the need for physical samples (in the same way as they would do traditionally in a Light Box).
Tried and tested
Users are reporting that in nearly all cases they make same decisions on screen as they would when they see physical samples a few days later.
DigiView provides an industry proven way to view calibrated colour images of lab dyes, bulk, print strike offs, components and trims. This remote assessment of colour submissions knocks off days and sometimes up to one week from lead-times on colour submissions. This too saves courier costs associated with the shipping of colour samples.
Do you experience the following problems with traditional colour approval processes?
Instrumental colour measurement provides pass/fail reports of colour accuracy against the agreed standards and have helped many retailers to tighten up on colour quality and allow some ‘self-approval’ to take place in the supply chain. However, not all fabrics are suited for measurement by a spectrophotometer or other measurement systems.
Brands and retailers often rely on the human eye alone to approve and control colour of merchandise. Delta E results on pass/fail reports help but instrumental measurements and understanding reflectance data can be confusing. Especially with complex colour designs or multiple colours used in a fabric.
Do you wish you can visualise data to see what the colour looks like? Now you can with DigiView, the smart swatch tool for vision-based remote colour assessment.
Backed by Next
“Since introducing the DigiView system into the business both submission and response times on print strike offs, bulk fabric and shade bands have been significantly reduced. Both buyers and technologists are loving this easy ad accurate new way of working” – Claire Brealey, Womenswear Technical Manager, Next Retail.
