X-Rite Incorporated and Pantone have announced that Fujifilm’s ColorPath SYNC cloud-based color management tools now support the new i1Pro 3 Family of spectrophotometers enabling quick and easy ICC profiles creation to align production devices to a designated color target.
‘X-Rite’s i1Pro line of measuring devices has always been an integral part of our ColorPath SYNC suite of color management tools,’ said Peter Pretzer, ColorPath Solutions development manager for Fujifilm North America. ‘We look forward to the gains in productivity both we and our customers will enjoy with the new i1Pro 3 Family in conjunction with ColorPath SYNC.’
The i1Pro 3 Family is used by graphic arts professionals who require accurate color from their printer, display, and projector. It 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 will look under different lighting conditions. The i1Pro 3 Plus features a larger 8mm aperture to support additional materials and substrates used in digital printing applications. It also supports transmission scanning for backlit film and materials used in signage. With the addition of the i1iO3, both the i1Pro 3 and i1Pro 3 Plus can be used in automated measurement workflows.
‘X-Rite is excited to provide Fujifilm customers with best-in-class solutions to improve their digital printing workflows,’ said Ray Cheydleur, print and imaging product portfolio manager at X-Rite. ‘The i1Pro 3 speeds the measurement process with its new single pass scanning workflow for all M conditions. When paired with ColorPath SYNC, print customers can achieve a connected workflow to define printing system settings, create ICC profiles, linearize, validate, and maintain compliance with printing standards.’
