GretagMacbeth New Eye-One System Named Seybold Hot Picks
Press release from the issuing company
Boston, MA, April 8, 2001 - GretagMacbeth, worldwide technological leader in color measurement and management solutions, today announced that the new Eye-One system has been selected by Seybold Publications’ editors as one of its “Hot Picks” for 2001. The Hot Picks are recognized as the most remarkable new products and technologies exhibited at Seybold Boston 2001, currently underway at the Hynes Convention Center.
The Eye-One color management system includes both software and a measurement device to simplify the creation, communication, and control of color. It is able to scan colors from any source to create color palettes, which can be shared electronically with clients or other design team members and also exported to popular design applications. Additionally, the Eye-One system defines colors in terms of spectral data, which can be precisely translated for all types of media and lighting environments, including print, large format output, multimedia and the web. Powered by a USB connection, the Eye-One measurement device requires no additional power supply and can be used with both the Mac and PC.
“Unlike previous monitor calibrators, GretagMacbeth's Eye-One color management system is unique in that it is based on a color management device that can work with CRT and LCD displays,” explains Pete Dyson, Editor of The Seybold Report.
“We are honored that the Eye-One system was recognized by Seybold Publications as an important new solution for the creative community,” said Francis Lamy, Vice President and General Manager of Digital Imaging at GretagMacbeth, “We believe Eye-One will redefine color management for creatives by offering an unprecedented combination of software and hardware tools that greatly simplifies color management and communication.”
