All readings performed with a X-Rite certified and calibrated
i1pro spectrophotmeter. This spectrophotometer is
calibrated yearly by X-Rite.

This will be a closed thread with all of the spectrophotometer readings of all the commercial materials I have.
This is what the chart will look like. This is a reading from a X-Rite N5 Gray Card.
The upper left side has all the data fields. The middle left is the D65 bullseye. The lower left is the RGB Color Balance which shows the saturation for each primary color.
The upper right side is the spectrum chart. Below that is the CIE plot and the Color Temp gauge.
The Y value in xyY is a foot lambert measure, not the standard cd/m2 measure we are used to seeing. Multiply it by 3.4262590996353834259536468581083 to get the proper nits value.
