The PDV Professional Desktop Viewers
provide Industry Standard D50 colour viewing conditions
right on your desktop! These accurate colour viewers utilise
innovative, energy efficient slim-line lamps and electronic ballasts. Improved lamp/reflector technology provides a smaller and more convenient light source without compromising light intensity and evenness of illumination.

These compact affordable colour viewers are available in 3 basic sizes with two types of viewing options. Reflection Only units allow vertical and horizontal comparison viewing of reflection copy; Transmission and Reflection units (TR) can be used for the comparison of transparencies and prints (available with PDV-2 & PDV-3 only).

Available Options ...

PDV-3TR/D shown with
optional sidewalls SW-PDV-3


The addition of sidewalls reduces the influence from high ambient
lighting and provides tighter control of the viewing environment.
Available for all standard models (except folding versions)

Dimming Models

Visual colour comparison between a colour monitor and a transparency,
print or proof is significantly enhanced by bringing the light intensity
of the viewing system closer to the light output of the monitor.
(Designated with a "D" after the model number.)

Folding Models

For easy transport, the PDV-1 and PDV-2 models are available
in a folding version. Ideal for client presentations or offsite colour reviews.
(Designated with an "F" after the model number.)
