Overview

In high production environments like prepress, photo processing, high speed digital printing, and fine art printing, measuring color test charts to keep your color management profiles up-to-date can be a labor intensive and time consuming process.

The new Eye-One automatic chart reader, known by the project name iSis, sets new standards in terms of speed, accuracy and handling allowing you more time to focus on taking care of your customers.

Featuring i1 Inside, the award-winning technology found in the popular Eye-One Pro solutions, Eye-One iSis ensures accurate, consistent and predictable results every time. You can measure a reflective test chart with 1,500 patches in just four minutes with a minimum of effort and training.

And since Eye-One iSis captures full spectral data, you have the most complete color description a critical element for precise color management and control throughout your workflow.

Simply insert the chart and the measurement process is started automatically. There's no need to press any buttons to start the process. With its unique built-in vision system,

Eye-One Isis has an extremely high tolerance for how charts are aligned as they are fed into the system and automatically corrects for misalignment. This helps minimize handling errors and eliminates the frustration of having to re-feed misaligned charts. Eye-One iSis handles substrates from 0.08 to 0.45mm in thickness.

With its innovative design, the standard A4+ version of Eye-One iSis allows you to measure an A4+ test chart with up to 1,100 patches. With the A3+ version, charts with as many as 2,500 patches can be printed on a single A3 page eliminating the time consuming task of cutting charts and feeding multiple pages.

In addition, you never have to worry about scratching or damaging your test charts thanks to its contact-free measurement system. And, the LED illumination ensures a long lifetime with very little maintenance.
