ColorQA version 3.0 is a color comparison device that digitally measures the color of a target color and then allows the user to sample any number of comparison colors to determine a color match. It is light weight, portable, hand held and battery operated. Colors are read by pressing the tip of the ColorQA against the surface of the colored material to be read. The results of the color measurement are displayed on an LCD screen. The screen shows the read out for the Target Color on the first line, the read out of the Sample Color on the second line and the differences in the two colors are shown on lines 3 and 4. Line three shows the simple numerical differences in color and line 4 shows the difference in the two colors expressed in a percent difference: The version 3.0 compares readings and expresses the final result in one "% diff" reading result. The three color zones measured by the ColorQA version 3.0 are red, green and blue.
