Following companies have signed a letter of support for the project:

The International Commission on Illumination – also known as the CIE from its French title, the Commission Internationale de l´Eclairage – is devoted to worldwide cooperation and the exchange of information on all matters relating to the science and art of light and lighting, colour and vision, photobiology and image technology.
With strong technical, scientific and cultural foundations, the CIE is an independent, non-profit organization that serves member countries on a voluntary basis. Since its inception in 1913, the CIE has become a professional organization and has been accepted as representing the best authority on the subject and as such is recognized by ISO as an international standardization body.

DM&S provides instrumentation for measurement and evaluation of object properties that affect the visual appearance of electronic display devices, for example, sparkle of electronic displays with anti-glare surfaces. We also offer hard- and software for obtaining scattering induced directional reflection and transmission characteristics from one and two-dimensional intensity distributions recorded with imaging photometers and colorimeters under line- and point-source illumination.

Seelab is a newcomer that designs and sells goniospectropohotometers dedicated to aspect characterization of raw materials and products with optical effets. The last generation of devices, called GP, added a step forward in ease-of-use. GP are portable, fully wireless, and include a touch screen and a camera. Thanks to several illuminants and user-defined measurement angles, including specular, GP perform real BRDF capture, allowing gloss and color characterization at the same time.
