A number of calibration methods are shown

No calibration card needed

Nix devices are individually calibrated in our Canadian lab using proprietary calibration methods, meaning you’ll get reliable and accurate data without the need of a calibration chip. They are the only company in the world to use this innovative method.

Remember, your device is only as accurate as your calibration card. In damp, dirty, or dusty environments a traditional calibration tile will drift in a matter of days. This can seriously sway your data and lead to costly errors.

Built for any environment

The Nix hardware line is built for even the toughest of environments. Our patented design prevents dust and debris from damaging the interior components and allows for consistently accurate results.

Devices with open cavities are susceptible to data drifting, which ultimately leads to costly errors. As soon as dirt or debris infiltrates the device your data is no longer reliable. With the award-winning Nix Design, you’ll be confident in your colour data.

High quality databases

NIX have a dedicated team that meticulously digitises each and every colour, collection, and brand in our app libraries. To ensure you have access to the best colour matches possible, we spend days perfecting the digital databases before uploading them to the app.

This cumbersome process guarantees that our databases are consistent and reliable. We also offer our digitisation services to clients looking to include their libraries in our apps.


Nix devices are recognized as winners in prestigious design awards including the Red Dot Design Award and German Design Awards for Excellent Product Design. These internationally sought after awards recognize companies with outstanding technology and high quality design. Previous winners include Apple, Ferrari, Dyson, Samsung, and Logitech.
