How did you come up with the idea for this product?
Matthew Sheridan, founder of Nix Sensor Ltd., was inspired by interior designer friends burdened by heavy tote bags filled with fan decks. To make the situation worse, this expensive “solution” was still greatly affected by ambient lighting conditions and human error. We discussed the idea of a product that could solve all of these problems and after countless months of development the Nix Pro Color Sensor was born.
What makes your product special?
The Nix Pro is the ideal color tool for various industries such as interior design, graphic design, architecture, and digital design. Providing objective, accurate, and quick color measurement, the Nix Pro will eliminate the guesswork and provide exact digital color data. You can then use that data to match to colors in our app library, organize in custom folders, do A/B comparisons, and export into .csv files. Each device is assembled and individually calibrated here in our Canadian Lab, ensuring a high quality product that is ready to use out-of-the-box. Gone are the days of relying on fan decks and paint chips for accurate color matching!
