The SpecTD is a state of the art, hybrid spectrophotometer & densitometer specifically designed for the motion picture film industry and the requirements of modern digital intermediate colour management systems.

SpecTD hybrid spectrophotometer & densitometer


The SpecTD provides spectral analysis of negative and print film, while also providing all of the functionality of a traditional transmission densitometer. With the increasing demands of colour management systems, and the closer tolerances required of digital and print presentations, there has developed an increasing need for more detailed analysis tools. The SpecTD is ideally suited to this environment and that of traditional film processing laboratories. In conjunction with the SCD automates transport system, the SpecTD provides an efficient, versatile automated solution for large measurement sets.
