Colour science and technology providers X-Rite Inc. and Pantone have announced that Fujifilm’s ColorPath Sync cloud-based color management tools now support the new i1Pro 3 family of spectrophotometers. Print providers will be able to quickly and easily create ICC profiles using the i1Pro 3 devices and align production devices to a designated colour target using ColorPath Sync.
“X-Rite’s i1Pro line of measuring devices has always been an integral part of our ColorPath Sync suite of colour management tools,” said Peter Pretzer, ColorPath solutions development manager for Fujifilm North America, Graphic Systems Division. “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 companies describe the i1Pro 3 family as “ideal for print and graphic arts professionals who require accurate colour from their printer, display and projector.” “The i1Pro 3 is more accurate, reliable and twice as fast as its predecessor,” they said. “It simultaneously measures M0, M1, and M2 in a single pass while accounting for optical brighteners.”
Prepress and print operators can quickly predict how colours 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, X-Rite’s print and imaging product portfolio manager. “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.”
