Lawrenceville, NJ (July 14, 2021) – Datacolor®, a global leader in color management solutions, announced today the launch of its latest color tool, the RAL COLORREADER for professionals and consumers. Combining the renowned color legacy of RAL with the color management expertise of Datacolor, the RAL COLORREADER lets you scan the flat surface of any color to instantly find its precise RAL color match via its feature-rich companion app. In addition to providing accurate color matches, users can tap on their color match to find coordinating colors, conveniently organized into monochromatic, analogous, triad and complementary color palettes, simplifying and facilitating the color matching and coordinating processes.

For the professional, the RAL COLORREADER streamlines the workflow process, allowing architects, interior designers, and painters the ease and ability to accurately match paint colors right from the job site without having to remove wall samples and take them to the paint store. RAL COLORREADER also provides precise color data (CIE Lab, RGB, Hex, CMYK, LCH and LRV) for digital design work, allowing users to easily convert color matches to other palettes if needed.

With its compact size and ease of use, the RAL COLORREADER lets professionals and consumers capture color inspiration on-the-go, save it and share with staff, other design professionals, homeowners, friends and family. For easy access and reference, organize and label the saved color matches by job or by room, or create signature color palettes.
