  • ColorChecker Camera Calibration Software and Target - Produce custom camera profiles for your Raw workflows, even in unusual artificial light sources with this 24-patch ColorChecker Target.
  • PANTONE® Color Manager - Easily capture and manage spot colours, and keep your PANTONE libraries up to date with this colour palette creation and swatch bridging software.
The new i1Publish Pro 2 is easy to use, versatile, accurate and reliable, making this a must-have product for Colour Perfectionists.

i1Publish Pro 2 Featured Highlights:

  • Illuminant design allows for 3 standard measurement conditions (ISO 13655 M0: Tungsten; ISO 13655 M1: D50; ISO 13655 M2: UV Cut) plus Optical Brightener Compensation (OBC) without changing filters or needing a second instrument and ensures your investment well into the future
  • Enhanced Optical Brightener Compensation allows for the most accurate profiling for today’s enhanced range of substrates. Now users can predict what colours printed on optically brightened paper will look like under both standard and specific light conditions using a single hand-held device.
  • Positioning Detection 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 saving time and money on consumables and enabling dual measurement workflows for OBC, M1 and M2
  • Status LED guides users through the measurement process and provides feedback on device status, improving the user experience and saving time
  • Design Ergonomics throughout allows for greater usability, flexibility, cleaning, protection, and storage of the precision i1Pro 2 device, assuring the highest level of reliability and productivity
  • Better temperature stability and higher brightness levels improve emissive measurement, resulting in the best possible calibration and profiling of monitors and projectors
  • All new diagnostics and self-correction features - Built-in wavelength calibration technology allows for self-diagnosis of optical grating in relation to sensor during white calibration (with automatic correction and notifications) eliminating worry about your device’s measurement accuracy
  • Maintaining and protecting the device (and investment) is easier than ever - Self-cleanable aperture protection glass and calibration white tile cover provides additional built-in protection from dust and dirt keeping your device working at top performance at all times
  • XRGA equipped - i1Pro 2 is equipped with the X-Rite Graphic Arts Standard (XRGA) to make it quicker and easier for companies and professionals involved in digital production printing to adhere to ISO standards and have confidence that data sent or received from all links in the supply chain is reliable and repeatable.

i1Profile specific capabilities include:

Monitor

  • Utilise presets for video production workflows
  • Create profiles for any ambient light condition for optimal viewing of colour-critical work
  • Unlimited gamma, white point, and luminance settings (also measure other displays or light sources and use as targets)
  • Workgroup match utilizing reference profiles to match all monitors
  • Grey balance optimization for more neutral and better-defined greys, in any lighting condition
  • Chromatic adaptation formula for a closer visual match of different monitors (or of different settings on one monitor) with different white points
  • X-Rite’s Automatic Display Calibration (ADC) to automatically control and adjust display hardware settings

Digital Projector

  • Build an accurate on-screen profile in just a few minutes – just as easy as building a monitor profile
  • Takes room conditions into consideration when creating a profile – projected colours, screen colour and room lighting

RGB and CMYK+ Printer

  • Intelligent iterative profiling technology ensures your output is reproduced accurately from print to print and printer to printer
  • Unmatched quality for smoothness, highlight and shadow detail
  • Utilise Optical Brightener Compensation (OBC) functionality to account for paper optical brighteners
  • Advanced controls for black generation and separation and significant ink savings
  • Optimise profiles based on your images for specific colours, black & white, or flesh tones, PANTONE libraries and captured spot colours
  • Supports high patch count test charts for the most accurate printer profiles – ideal for fine art printing and proofing
  • Choose from standard test charts or easily build your own to meet your specific colour and paper size requirements
  • Automatic detection of any installed RGB or CMYK printer driver
  • Keep colour correct over time and between runs by using the linearization feature to bring your printer back to it's profiled state
  • Capture true colours with flash and ambient light measurements – easily apply to output profiles for your gallery, studio or any specific lighting condition for perfect colour match
  • Quickly check colour output quality and optical brighteners with ColorChecker Proof visual assessment target

Quality Assurance (QA)

  • Display quality assurance function to check soft proofing
  • Printer quality assurance function to check print quality using ISO 12647-7 compliant media wedges (IDEAlliance Digital Control Strip, Fogra Media Wedge, Japan Color Control Strip).

ColorChecker Camera Calibration System

This widely adapted profiling technology provides excellent results with just the mini 24-patch ColorChecker Classic target, producing custom camera profiles that work exceptionally well for Raw workflows, even in unusual artificial light sources.

Whether you are shooting with just one camera or multiple cameras, you’ll easily establish an accurate colour foundation and maintain control of your colours.

  • Minimise colour differences between cameras and lenses
  • Adapt for mixed lighting
  • Make colour balance match across different scenes
  • Create dual illuminant profiles which take into account two different light sources to create a single profile, which can be applied to an even wider variety of lighting conditions
