X-Rite and Pantone showcase the next generation of color measurement hardware leveraging video targeting technology and integrated cloud-based software to provide printers and converters with a total solution in one handheld device.
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – X-Rite Incorporated and Pantone LLC, global leaders in color science and technology, will showcase the future of color measurement technology and digital color workflows at PRINTING United Expo 2022, October 19-21 in Las Vegas. Printers and converters will see firsthand how the next generation eXact™ 2 spectrophotometer and software ecosystem bring the print and packaging workflow together in one device.
“We are excited to attend PRINTING United and to demonstrate the eXact 2’s award-winning Mantis™ video targeting technology that allows operators to see exactly what they are measuring,” said Carlos Borda, Director Print and Packaging, X-Rite. “More than just a color measurement tool, eXact 2 is the driving force behind an integrated digital workflow to evaluate and manage color and leverage industry standards for process control. For a powerful end-to-end color solution, it connects to cloud-based software, including PantoneLIVE™, ColorCert™, and InkFormulation software, directly from the touch screen.”
In booth N729, X-Rite will showcase the next generation of color management solutions.
eXact 2 is the first handheld, non-contact measurement device for the print and packaging market to combine imaging technology with zoom, onboard camera, scanning, Wi-Fi, and advanced software integrations. With a simplified user interface, print operators can verify customer requirements two times faster and with more confidence that the correct spot is measured. The eXact 2 won the Pinnacle InterTech Award which recognizes best-in-class products for the printing industry.
ColorCert ScoreCard Server has been redesigned using a new modern architecture and provides printers with an overall view of print quality and color performance in a single number score to confirm compliance with brand specifications, including spot color matching and CMYK production to both G7 and PSO target values.
X-Rite Link is an intuitive cloud-based dashboard that allows printers and converters to verify the status of one or a fleet of eXact 2 devices, configure and distribute updates and libraries, and more.
IntelliTrax2 Pro is an integrated automated scanning solution for mid- to large-sized commercial printers that provides instant feedback on job performance with direct integration to the ColorCert Suite. It is a G7® Press Control System Certified by Idealliance® and supports PSO and ISO print specification to help printers ensure each job is produced according to the customer’s requirements.
i1Pro 3 Plus color profiling device reduces color measurement variability allowing printers to create ICC profiles for almost any substrate including paper, film, textiles, vinyl, and other materials and calibrate print production devices for the highest level of color accuracy. It can be paired with the i1iO chart reading system for automated transmission profiling used in backlit signage applications.
