X-Rite announces next generation i1Pro 3

X-Rite announces next generation i1Pro 3

X-Rite and Pantone have released the third generation of their popular redesigned i1Pro 3 spectrophotometer that is more accurate and reliable as well as two times faster than its predecessor.

The i1Pro 3 used by professionals who require accurate color from their printer, display, and projector enables tracking and verifying monitor and print quality and capturing spot color measurements. 

‘For more than 10 years the i1Pro Family has been the go-to solution for imaging professionals who require accurate color profiling,’ said Ray Cheydleur, printing and imaging product portfolio manager at X-Rite. ‘The third-generation i1Pro takes color management to the next level by significantly improving on device speed and supporting new high brightness display requirements. Professionals can quickly and easily incorporate color standards across all digital devices and print production equipment for repeatable and predictive color management.’

The upgraded spectrophotometer offers a custom, full-spectrum LED light source, which allows for single-pass scanning and improves device reliability and accuracy. It measures M0, M1, and M2 simultaneously in a single pass while accounting for optical brighteners. 

Prepress and print operators can now quickly predict how colors printed on optically brightened substrates will look under different lighting conditions. i1Pro3 reads smaller patch sizes twice as fast as its predecessor with improved accuracy and optimizes automated file 

All models of the i1Pro 3 come with the latest version of i1Profiler, a professional color profiling software. X-Rite will showcase the upgraded tool this year at DRUPA, June 16-26, Düsseldorf, Germany.
