Launch of (RICOH CV-10A)
2D Color Analyzer for Display Inspection
~ Achieve high-precision chromaticity
through in-plane measurement ~
On November 12, 2014 – Ricoh Industrial Solutions Inc. in Japan is announcing the introduction of the
RICOH CV-10A, 2D Color Analyzer for Display Inspection.
The 2D Color Analyzer is a camera that measures color, luminance and other color information. RICOH
CV-10A proves to be exceptionally advanced in the inspection of display quality. High-precision
inspection becomes possible in a short amount of time as the shooting range is wider than a point
measurement type colorimeter, allowing a maximum of 120×90 points of color to be acquired in a single
shot. This device can also inspect irregular color and detect color differences that are difficult to identify
with the human eye, contributing to inspection efficiency and cost reduction.
Moreover, because of the camera’s compact, light-weight design, it can be easily transported to inspect
the irregular color and irregular luminance of digital signage.
<Key Features of the New 2D Color Analyzer [RICOH CV-10A]>
1. High-precision in-plane chromaticity measurement
The RICOH CV-10A has a wider shooting range than a point measurement type colorimeter, making it
possible to measure color to a maximum of 120×90 points in a single shot. This capability allows,
inspection time to be significantly reduced, leading to an improvement in production efficiency.
*Based on Ricoh data, as of November 2014
2. High-precision and low variation color measurement
When used in conjunction with the XYZ filter the RICOH CV-10A measures color in a manner similar to
human eye perception. By applying a calibration process that uses Ricoh’s unique algorithm, highprecision, less deviation, and accurate color measurement is achieved.
3. Compact, lightweight and portable device
With the fusion of Ricoh’s fine optical design, manufacturing technology and image processing
technology, 46 (W) × 46 (H) × 125 (D) mm, approximately 314g compact/lightweight product is achieved,
making it highly portable.
