Visual perception is highly subjective as it is influenced by our individual color preferences depending on our personal experience. At the same time we make decisions all the time based on the color of a product. Consistent color is a key factor in our purchasing decision, as we associate it with high quality. To optimize the color consistency, you need standardized test procedure including a neutral surrounding and defined illumination is needed.

The real challenge is to simulate natural daylight which is defined by CIE D65 and D75 illuminants. The daylight-technology used int the byko-spectra pro guarantees accurate color rendering which fulfills the highest class A according to CIE (CIE Publication 51).
