i1Photo Pro 2 is designed for photo professionals who rely on accurate color throughout their RGB workflow – from cameras, monitors and projectors to RGB printers. i1Photo Pro 2 includes:

  • The extraordinary new i1Pro 2 Spectrophotometer
  • The latest release of i1Profiler Software
  • ColorChecker Camera Calibration and ColorChecker Classic Target [mini]
  • PANTONE Color Manager Software
  • ColorChecker Proof Target
  • All-new, more robust i1 accessories: Ambient Light Measurement Head, Monitor Holder, Scanning Ruler, Backup Board, Spot Color Positioning Target, Soft Carrying Case


The most accurate, versatile and reliable profiling device available today
Built upon the success of X-Rite’s i1Pro spectrophotometer as the de facto industry standard for more than a decade, i1Pro 2 features the next generation of our industry-leading technology delivering increased accuracy, ease of use and an expanded professional-level feature set.


  • New illuminant design allows for 3 standard measurement conditions (ISO 13655 M0: Tungsten; ISO 13655 M1: D50; ISO 13655 M2: UV Cut) plus Optical Brightener Compensation (OBC) without changing filters or needing a second instrument and ensures your investment well into the future.
  • Enhanced Optical Brightener Compensation allows for the most accurate profiling for today’s enhanced range of substrates. Now users can predict what colors printed on optically brightened paper will look like under both standard and specific light conditions using a single hand-held device.
  • Positioning Detection Sensor provides a more robust scanning experience even on special substrates and low-resolution printers. It allows for the measurement of smaller patch sizes (as low as 7mm) in manual mode saving time and money on consumables and enabling dual measurement workflows for OBC, M1 and M2.
  • New Status LED guides users through the measurement process and provides feedback on device status, improving the user experience and saving time.
  • New Design Ergonomics throughout allows for greater usability, flexibility, cleaning, protection, and storage of the precision i1Pro 2 device, assuring the highest level of reliability and productivity.
  • Better temperature stability and higher brightness levels improve emissive measurement, resulting in the best possible calibration and profiling of monitors and projectors.
  • All new diagnostics and self-correction features
  • Built-in wavelength calibration technology allows for self-diagnosis of optical grating in relation to sensor during white calibration (with automatic correction and notifications) eliminating worry about your device’s measurement accuracy.
  • Maintaining and protecting the device (and investment) is easier than ever
  • Self-cleanable aperture protection glass and calibration white tile cover provides additional built-in protection from dust and dirt keeping your device working at top performance at all times.
  • XRGA equipped
  • i1Pro 2 is equipped with the X-Rite Graphic Arts Standard (XRGA) to make it quicker and easier for companies and professionals involved in digital production printing to adhere to ISO standards and have confidence that data sent or received from all links in the supply chain is reliable and repeatable.


i1Profiler, based upon X-Rite’s i1Prism color engine, offers an unprecedented level of flexibility and features a number of unique color management capabilities adding power and control in creating professional quality profiles. You can choose between a ‘basic’, wizard-driven interface; or an ‘advanced’, user-driven interface to create high quality, precise, custom color profiles profiles for monitors, projectors, scanners and RGB printers.

i1Profiler unique capabilities include:

  • Create highest quality professional color profiles for monitors, projectors, scanners and RGB printers
  • Optimize profiles based on ambient light, specific images and spot colors
  • Quality assurance for soft proofing on monitors and verifying output quality on printers

i1Profiler specific capabilities include:


  • Calibrate and profile all modern laptop and desktop display technologies
  • Utilize presets for video production workflows
  • Create profiles for any ambient light condition for optimal viewing of color critical work
  • Unlimited gamma, white point, and luminance settings (also measure other displays or light sources and use as targets)
  • Workgroup match utilizing reference profiles to match all monitors
  • Gray balance optimization for more neutral and better defined grays, in any lighting condition
  • Chromatic adaptation formula for a closer visual match of different monitors (or of different settings on one monitor) with different white points
  • X-Rite’s Automatic Display Calibration (ADC) to automatically control and adjust display hardware settings

Digital Projector

  • Build an accurate on-screen profile in just a few minutes – just as easy as building a monitor profile
  • Takes room conditions into consideration when creating profile – projected colors, screen color and room lighting


  • Scanner profiling has never been so easy. Simply scan the target to generate a high quality ICC profile.
  • Software automatically detects and crops target.
  • Supports the following targets: 
            ColorChecker Classic
            ColorChecker Digital SG
            Reflective IT 8.7/2
            Transmissive 4x5 and 35mm IT 8.7/1

RGB Printer

  • Intelligent iterative profiling technology ensures your output is reproduced accurately from print to print and printer to printer
  • Unmatched quality for smoothness, highlight and shadow detail
  • Utilize Optical Brightener Compensation (OBC) functionality to account for paper optical brighteners
  • Optimize profiles based on your images for specific colors, black & white, or flesh tones, PANTONE libraries and captured spot colors
  • Supports high patch count test charts for the most accurate printer profiles – ideal for fine art printing and proofing
  • Choose from standard test charts or easily build your own to meet your specific color and paper size requirements
  • Capture true colors with flash and ambient light measurements – easily apply to output profiles for your gallery, studio or any specific lighting condition for perfect color match
  • Quickly check color output quality and optical brighteners with ColorChecker Proof visual assessment target

Quality Assurance (QA)

  • Display quality assurance function to check soft proofing
  • Printer quality assurance function to check print quality using ISO 12647-7 compliant media wedges (IDEAlliance Digital Control Strip, Fogra Media Wedge, Japan Color Control Strip).

ColorChecker Camera Calibration System

This widely adapted profiling technology provides excellent results with just the mini 24-patch ColorChecker Classic target, producing custom camera profiles that work exceptionally well for Raw workflows, even in unusual artificial light sources. Whether you are shooting with just one camera or multiple cameras, you’ll easily establish an accurate color foundation and maintain control of your colors.

  • Minimize color differences between cameras and lenses
  • Adapt for mixed lighting
  • Make color balance match across different scenes
  • Create dual illuminant profiles which takes into account two different light sources to create a single profile, which can be applied to an even wider variety of lighting conditions
