GLX Transparency Viewers

These units are available with viewing areas of 30x42''/76x107cm up to 48x56''/122x142cm to meet a wide range of transparency viewing applications. The units are available with a dimming feature for soft proofing applications and the LiteGuard® II lamp monitoring system.

Full-Spectrum Graphiclite 100 Color Viewing Lamps

Every GTI® color viewing system features Graphiclite® 100 color viewing lamps. To ensure optimum viewing conditions, these lamps are manufactured with a unique blend of fluorescent phosphors. Unequaled by any other 5000 Kelvin lamp in the industry, the Graphiclite 100 produces a true full-spectrum white light which renders colors with the highest degree of accuracy and efficiency. In GTI viewers, the Graphiclite 100 color viewing lamp produces an actual system CRI approaching 95.

Mounting and Viewing Angles

The ergonomic design of these viewers permits fast and easy relamping, and includes the distinctive chrome grip, a convenient transparency holder. In addition to easy wall-mounting, all GLX viewers have an adjustable stand which offers varied viewing angles, allowing the viewers to lay flat, stand vertically or incline at approximately 15 or 75°.

Built-in Quality Control

The Graphiclite GLX-LG (GLX viewers with LiteGuard II) are the only transparency viewers to offer the unique LiteGuard II “intelligence” system. A critical quality control monitor, LiteGuard II features an exclusive digital circuitry design. It emits a dynamic visual signal when the viewer requires relamping, has warmed up and stabilized, reaches 25, 50 and 100% of the lamps’ critical color life or experiences a significant voltage drop.

Tested and Approved

All GLX viewers proudly bear the important quality control seal. This official seal of approval guarantees that every GLX viewer meets GTI's specifications, the highest quality control tolerances in the industry today. A highly trained GTI technician tests every viewer for strict adherence to ANSI and ISO standards, and measures each individual viewer both colorimetrically and photometrically.

Precise Control of Illumination Level

Models with the dimming feature (with “/D” in the model reference) incorporate electronic dimming ballasts which allow you to control the light intensity for an optimum match to a computer monitor.

ISO 3664:2009 Compliant

These units comply with the ISO viewing standard. This highly technical set of specifications enables lighting manufacturers to design, test and certify color viewing systems. The standard specifies a set of five conditions which all must be present in order to assure the benefits of the standard for the Graphics and Photographic Industry. When correctly installed the GLX viewers meet these conditions:

  • color quality
  • light intensity
  • evenness
  • surround
  • geometry
