The Eye-One Web site, wwwi1color.com, has been localized and is now accessible in French, Italian, German and Spanish. GretagMacbeth is also demonstrating several new features for Eye-One, including a new diagnostic tool with which users can verify that the Eye-One spectrophotometer is operating correctly.
New iCColor 200
