Klein K-80 Probe

Klein K-80 Tristimulus Colourimeter

The Klein K-80 Colourimeter is designed for all display types - specifically small screens, and can measure all projection as well as all luminous display technologies, such as DLP, D-ILA, SXRD, Plasma (PDP's), LED and OLED types, CRT's, FED's and much more.


Klein K80

The Klein K-80 provides industry standard colourimetry analysis, as well as the capability to measure flicker, and can measure colour and flicker on TVs, LED backlit displays, CRTs, phones, tablets and more. While the Klein K-80 was designed with small displays in mind, it is an ideal all in one solution for display calibration and flicker analysis.

The Klein K-80 includes standard tripod mounting, and is constructed with machined aluminum and high impact plastic. The K-80’s auto ranging is solid state, and all probe readings are consistent regardless of the distance from probe to display/screen.

LightSpace CMS Compatibility

The Klein K-80 is one of the recommended probes for use with LightSpace CMS as it provides an perfect combination of high speed, low-light reading, and accuracy, three key capabilities that combine with LightSpace CMS to provide the best possible final calibration, especially when combined with the unique 21^3 profiling capability of LightSpace, which at 9261 individual patches is the largest patch sequence of any calibration system.

LightSpace CMS Integration

As with all probes, the K80 operation and function is controlled via the 'Options' menu, accessed via the Calibration Interface, or Display Characterisation windows.

The K-80 has only two variables that are directly associated with the probe - and that is Probe (Black) Calibration, and probe Calibration Settings (Matrix pre-sets).
(This obviously ignores settings that are generic, such as Extra Delay Time, Probe Matching, Probe Offset, Luminance Units.)

K80 Options

The options are:

  • Probe Calibration: sets the 'Black Calibration' of the probe when the probe is initially connected
    The 'Probe Calibration' button can be used at any time to re-set the Black Calibration
  • Calibration Settings: using the drop-down menu any pre-set Matrix held with the K80 can be selected
    The Matrix presets match the probe to different display technologies - specifically the backlight/illumination spectral response

If using the Probe Matching function (Active Probe/Display Data) to pre-profile a Tristimulus probe to a Spectro, the same 'preset matrix' should always be used for the Tristimulus probe as was used when the Probe Matching data was generated.

For further information on the additional setting with the 'Options' menu see the Profiling Manual page.
