RAMSEY, N.J., March 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Konica Minolta Sensing Americas, Inc. (KMSA), the worldwide leader in the industrial measurement of color, light and shape, to showcase its new FD-Series Spectrodensitometers for the digital print and publishing market at the 2011 On Demand Expo held at the Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. March 22-24, 2011.
Konica Minolta Business Solutions, sister company to KMSA, has been a long standing leader in the digital print market with its bizhub line of MFP's and digital presses. A collaboration of the 2 divisions began at last year's 2010 Graph Expo where the FD-Series Spectrodensitometers made its debut. "This collaboration has continued to grow and will continue to grow as our 2 divisions begin to work even closer to bring unprecedented total color quality solutions to Konica Minolta customers," said Russell Doucette, Business Development Manager for Konica Minolta Sensing Americas.
About the FD-Series Spectrodensitometers
The new FD-Series Spectrodensitometers come in 2 models, the FD-5 and FD-7. Both will be lightweight, handheld models that can measure density and color while taking into account the fluorescence* of the paper substrate.
The FD-5 and FD-7 each are equipped with Konica Minolta's original VFS (Virtual Fluorescence Standard) technology that enables color evaluation under Illuminant D50, the standard light source used by the printing industry for color assessment. The VFS technology takes advantage of the optical, sensor, and software technology cultivated through Konica Minolta's long experience with color measuring instruments.
The FD-Series was developed to be the first spectrodensitometer on the market to correspond to the ISO 13655 M1 standard for fluorescence and color measurement. It also includes the industry's first Automatic Wavelength Compensation feature which automatically calibrates in the wavelength direction when white calibration is performed. Additionally the FD-5 and FD-7 are the world's lightest spectrodensitometers, weighting in at just under 1lb with its target mask attached.
