Swiss-based software developed Ergosoft has added X-Rite i1Pro 3 and i1Pro 3 Plus color management devices to the list of peripherals supported by its Ergosoft 16 RIP software that enables printers to quickly implement color standards across a variety of substrates and production equipment.
Using Ergosoft 16 with the i1Pro 3 helps printers improve print production workflow efficiency by allowing them to quickly implement color standards across a variety of materials and surfaces, including ceramics, textiles, glass, metal, wood, vinyl, plastics, thin films, cardboard, and paper. Digital printers can create ICC profiles for almost any substrate and calibrate print production devices for the highest level of color accuracy.
‘We are confident that the combination of Ergosoft 16 and the i1Pro 3 enables operators to realize the full potential of our software in terms of color control and color accuracy,’ said Anna Tobler, CEO of Ergosoft.
‘X-Rite is excited to work with Ergosoft to provide customers with best-in-class technologies to improve their digital printing workflows,’ said Ray Cheydleur, printing and imaging product portfolio manager at X-Rite. ‘The i1Pro 3 is fast, easy-to-use, and offers digital printers increased flexibility to measure a wide variety of materials. When paired with Ergosoft 16, print customers can achieve a connected workflow to define printing system settings, create ICC profiles, linearize, and more.’
The i1Pro 3 family is ideal for professionals who require accurate color from their printer, display, and projector. It is more accurate, reliable and twice as fast as its predecessor. The i1Pro 3 simultaneously measures M0, M1, and M2 in a single pass while accounting for optical brighteners. Prepress and print operators can quickly predict how colors printed on optically brightened substrates and textiles will look under different lighting conditions.
