With the i1Profiler software, X-Rite has developed a next generation toolset that combines the best features of its i1Match, ProfileMaker and MonacoPROFILER solutions. i1Profiler software offers an unprecedented level of flexibility to address the needs of digital imaging workflows. It features a number of unique colour management capabilities, adding to users' power and control in creating professional quality profiles. Users can choose between a 'basic', wizard-driven interface, or an 'advanced', user-driven interface to create high quality, precise, custom colour profiles for monitors, projectors, printers, and presses.
At the core of i1Profiler is X-Rite's i1Prism engine, whose unique iterative profiling technology lets users build printer profiles for up to 8-colour workflows (RGB, CMYK and CMYK plus any 4). This reliable, iterative technology is extremely robust, allowing for further profile optimization based on any combination of images, spot colours or captured colours. Users can select from any of the included digital PANTONE colour libraries, including the PANTONE PLUS SERIES. This results in superlative image quality and colour accuracy.
Using just one software tool, users can optimize their profiles, build profiles with ambient light measurements, correct for optical brighteners in their papers, and utilize simple yet advanced controls for black separation. i1Profiler lets users save and reuse assets or preferred settings with drag-and-drop functionality -- meaning profile generation workflows can be created or shared with others quickly, easily, and efficiently. This exchange functionality also allows users to communicate palette information and other colour data across the office or across the globe using X-Rite's Color Exchange Format (CxF) for the most comprehensive digital colour data exchange.
PANTONE Color Manager
PANTONE Color Manager will dynamically keep all digital PANTONE libraries up to date, accurate and ready to use in Adobe and Quark creative applications. The tight integration of i1Profiler with PANTONE Color Manager swatch bridging software gives users seamless access to all PANTONE colours for precise spot colour matching, and unparalleled accuracy of spot colour reproduction. It also makes multiple colour space selections simple for easy colour translation to multiple applications and is ideal for imaging professionals working with brand colour specifications.
PANTONE Color Manager includes a unique feature, which simplifies the creation and distribution of corporate brand style guides. Designers can include palette information, digital colour data, and output profiles to ensure that their brand colour is faithfully reproduced in any print production process around the corner or across the globe.
To help users perform a visual colour evaluation of their results using physical standards, i1Publish includes include the new ColorChecker Proof, a 24-patch ColorChecker Classic target precut for direct viewing against a printed target. When used in proper lighting conditions, this offers a much more precise visual verification of output quality, so that the user can quickly determine if any adjustment is needed.
ColorChecker Passport Software and Mini Classic Target
With the ColorChecker Passport Camera Calibration Application and Lightroom plug-in, users can quickly and easily build DNG profiles for Adobe Imaging solutions including Lightroom, Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Camera Raw (ACR), and Adobe Bridge. This advanced camera profiling technology provides excellent results with just the mini 24-patch ColorChecker Classic target. It produces DNG profiles that work exceptionally well, even in unusual or artificial light sources. Plus, software auto-detection will locate the target automatically. Whether shooting with just one camera or multiple cameras, photographers can easily establish an accurate colour foundation and maintain control of their colours.
