Confused about meters?  See our FAQ: Which meter is right for me?

The JETI Spectraval 1501/1511 spectroradiometers are the most affordable true reference device available. The Spectraval 1511 is less expensive than the JETI 1211 with similar performance and significantly enhanced user flexibility. Just mount either on a tripod, facing towards the source, connect to ChromaPure Professional and use as you would any other color analyzer.

Coming off the enormous success of the JETI 1211, JETI has developed a new line of reference spectroradiometers that seek to offer equivalent performance to the 1211 at an even lower cost and with increased user flexibility.

This effort has resulted in two new products, the Spectraval 1501 and Spectraval 1511. Each performs the same, but offer different user interfaces. The 1501 must be controlled by PC software, just like the JETI 1211. The 1511 adds a small LCD screen that allows the user to take measurements and view results without ever connecting to a PC. However, at some point in the display measurement process you will probably want to connect to video calibration software for analysis and reporting, which is why we offer the Spectraval 1511 bundled with ChromaPure Professional.

Both the 1501 and 1511 offer built-in Bluetooth, which allows wireless connection to the PC for added user flexibility. Otherwise, the Spectraval units offer similar speed, accuracy, and repeatability to the 1211 in addition to offering even higher dynamic range through greater maximum luminance. The 1211 offers a wider spectral range, but this is unnecesary for measurements in the visible range that we care about in home theater. To top it off, the Spectraval units are less expensive than the 1211.

Why buy a JETI Spectraval 15x1 instead of a JETI Specbos 12x1?

The JETI Spectraval 1501 is the replacement of Specbos 1201. It covers the same spectral range (VIS), but is about ten times more sensitive. Therefore it can be used for low light applications in the same manner as specbos 1211, where specbos 1201 was not recommended for such as the calibration of monitors. Spectraval 1501 is intended for Radiance mode measurements only, a diffusor, which is included in the specbos 1201 delivery, has to be ordered separately (ACC 032). If a stand alone solution is needed, then spectraval 1511 can be used. It has the identical parameters as spectraval 1501, but is equipped with display and SD card reader.

Choose Spectraval 1501/1511 over of Specbos 1211 for the followign reasons:

  • If a wavelength range beyond visible is not needed (version of spectraval 15x1 up to 1 μm is planned)
  • If no accessories other than a diffusor are needed (currently only a diffusor is available for spectraval)
  • If a luminance measurement above around 3500 cd/m2 is needed (illum. A – 5000 cd/m2, typical white LED – 3500 cd/m2 for specbos 1211, values up to 100 000 cd/m2 for spectraval)
  • If a stand-alone operation is needed (spectraval 1511 is equipped with display and SC card slot)
  • If a wireless connection is preferred (spectraval is equipped with Bluetooth interface by default)
