Spanish term or phrase: pantones
This is from a text by an Argentine curator about the problem of contemporary photography. While it might refer to pantone, the company that makes paint colors, the context makes me think that the reference is something more technological:

Para los que hacen arte con fotografía la situación es aún más desafiante. Van a batallar en el centro de un ring plagado de redes sociales y aplicaciones, de medios masivos, sus satélites y sus drones, de juegos de verosimilitud y de manipulación de los documentos ¿En qué se ancla un fotógrafo si ya no hay una masa consistente de realidad, sino una masa hacinada de ficciones? ¿Intentar apelar a un estado emocional compartido por algunos? ¿Narrar una microhistoria que hable de la condición humana? ¿Componer o desmenuzar pantones como si fuesen la naturaleza muerta del siglo XXI?.

Thanks

I think you should add colour chart, to make it clearer.
