Konica Minolta Sensing Americas Inc. (KMSA) debuts the FD-Series spectrodensitometers for the digital imaging market. The FD-5 and FD-7 are lightweight, handheld models that can measure density and color while taking into account the fluorescence of the paper substrate.

They are equipped with Konica Minolta's original Virtual Fluorescence Standard (VFS) technology that enables color evaluation under Illuminant D50, the standard light source used by the printing industry for color assessment. The VFS technology takes advantage of the optical, sensor and software technology cultivated through Konica Minolta's long experience with color measuring instruments.

The FD-Series was developed to be the first spectrodensitometer on the market to correspond to the ISO 13655 M1 standard for fluorescence and color measurement. It also includes the industries first automatic wavelength compensation feature which automatically calibrates in the wavelength direction when white calibration is performed. Also, the FD-5 and FD-7 claim to be the world's lightest spectrodensitometers, weighting in at just under 1lb with its target mask attached.
