GRAND RAPIDS MICHIGAN, September 12, 2007 – X-Rite, Incorporated, the world leader in color management and measurement technologies, today announced the i1iSis family of automated chart readers has won the prestigious European Digital Press (EDP) Award for Best Color Management in the software category. The winners are selected by the European Digital Press Association and are awarded for the best and most innovative digital printing products of the year. Judged on efficiency, performance, quality, design and ease-of-use, the award winning i1iSis is ideal for high production environments like prepress, high-speed digital printing, high-end proofing, packaging and wide-format printing. i1iSis users are ensured accurate, consistent and predictable results every time.
