X-Rite Launches i1Profiler v1.5
X-Rite Inc. introduced version 1.5 of its i1Profiler system with an emphasis on creating accurate device links to better drive a range of printing processes (inkjet, toner, offset) and to manage legacy print work.
i1Profiler v1.5 includes a new Device Link Profiling feature for colour mapping from one device to another, which includes an emphasis on creating what X-Rite describes as digital-to-digital and digital-to-offset links. Version 1.5 allows for re-targeting colour data values when a job is being printed – in maintaining colour separations.
Frank Maeder, X-Rite Product Manager of Imaging Solutions, states that in addition to running equipment more efficiently, customers using i1Profiler v1.5 should see benefits in the vibrancy and saturation of printed materials and efficient use of inks and toners.
Beyond the new Device Link Profiling feature, the i1Profiler v1.5 update also includes: M1 support for i1iO in spot mode, support for the Hutch Color (HCT) targets for scanner profiling, support for the Ugra/Fogra Media Wedge CMYK for large-format printing, and enhanced display and projector profiling.
Device Link Profiling is available free of charge to current X-Rite customers with i1Pro 2. Users must have an i1Pro 2 instrument with an i1Profiler Publish license or a USB dongle with an i1Profiler Publish license to unlock Device Link.
