Named Color Swatch

The Named Color Swatch Readout displays the name of the color from the chosen named color Palette that best matches the measured color, as judged according to the CIE Delta E 2000 metric, as well as an approximate visual representation of a measured color and the closest pallet color, and the corresponding Delta E 2000 value. The accuracy of the color displayed depends on how accurately your device display resembles an sRGB color response, and may differ also if the white point of the measurement is different to your display.

Named Color Pallete Configuration

The color palette can be chosen from a drop-down list of all the installed Color Pallets on your device. To install color Palettes, see Downloading Named Color Palettes.

Since a Chromatic Adaptation is used in transforming the measured color to the white point used in the Palette as well as your display, this is a white relative space and needs a defined white point. Details of white point configuration.
