Press release from the issuing company
X-Rite, Incorporated, the world leader in color management, measurement and communication technologies, announces that its redesigned new i1Pro 2 spectrophotometer has received the prestigious international 2012 “red dot award: product design.” The new i1Pro 2 spectrophotometer is featured in X-Rite’s recently announced portfolio of i1 Professional Color Management Solutions.
Evaluated by an international panel of 30 judges, X-Rite’s new i1Pro 2 spectrophotometer was selected for this highly sought-after award among 4,515 other product design entries from around the world. Award-winning products were chosen for their innovative design quality and will be on display at the red dot design museum in Germany from July 3 - 29, 2012.
This new award-winning device can be found in X-Rite’s new i1Basic Pro 2, i1Photo Pro 2, i1Publish Pro 2 and i1Publish products, all featuring groundbreaking new technology and applications. The new i1Pro 2 second-generation spectrophotometer is the most accurate and forward thinking device available today accommodating three measurement modes in one single device. These modes include the most commonly used M0 (Standard Illuminant A), the emerging M1 (illuminant D50) and M2 (known as UV-cut).
“X-Rite is honored to be selected for this coveted product design award for our thoughtfully redesigned i1Pro 2 spectrophotometer,” said Tobias Rausch, X-Rite Product Manager, i1 Solutions. “Recognized for its high quality design, the i1Pro 2 device helps deliver to color professionals around the world the workflow tools they need that incorporate ever important emerging color standards.”
Professor Dr. Peter Zec, initiator and CEO of the red dot design award, said, “The most distinguished products of the respective branch of industry faced up not only to the tough competition again this year, but also to the critical eye of the jury. The experts thoroughly examined, tested and evaluated each individual entry applying the highest standards. With their performances, the laureates not only demonstrated extraordinary design quality but they also showed that design is an integral part of innovative product solutions.”
Enhanced Optical Brightener Compensation allows for the most accurate profiling (both Tungsten and UV/LED mode) for today’s enhanced range of substrates. Now users can predict what colors printed on optically brightened paper will look like under different light conditions using a single hand-held device.
Positioning Detection with Zebra 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 and enables dual measurement workflows for OBC, M1 and M2.
New Wizard-driven interface with status LED leads users through the profiling and calibration process while providing all the options and control desired, regardless of expertise.
