Nix Color Sensor Ltd. is a world leader in digital color sensing equipment and workflow solutions. Our patented technology allows our users to instantly determine the exact color of any physical object and bring it into the digital world.
We are partnered with over 30 brand-name paint brands, including Benjamin-Moore, PPG, and AkzoNobel, to find the closest paint matches to any scanned surface. In addition to paint, our Nix devices are able to provide color details for digital and design media, and are involved in various other industries, including agriculture, beauty/make-up, and fashion (to name a few). It is our mission to provide customers with a seamless user experience; to both enhance the productivity of their workflow, and to increase color confidence in any industry.
Our dedicated team has grown quickly in just a few years, and is constantly working hard to push the boundaries of the color industry. Since the release of the Nix Pro Color Sensor in 2015, we’ve been listening to the needs of our customers to create an exciting and innovative product line. The Nix Mini Color Sensor was released in 2017 as an affordable, compact tool, perfect for anyone in the paint and design industry, and the Nix Quality Control Color Sensor, released earlier this year, streamlines any color management process, allowing the user to visualize detailed scan data quickly and efficiently within their defined parameters.
