X-Rite has introduced the i1iSis Power Bundle, which includes complete hardware and software for users in prepress, digital printing and wide-format printing. This powerful combination connects the full range of X-Rite’s professional colour management solutions together for the first time.

“Including an i1Pro and professional software with the i1iSis XL automated chart reader enables our customers to have the most versatile and complete colour measurement suites available today,” said Thomas Kunz, Imaging and Media Market Manager, Photo, X-Rite. The iSis provides high speed, easy-to-use chart reading for printer profiling, while the i1Pro allows users to profile scanners, cameras and displays, measure ambient light and take spot colour measurements. A choice of either ProfileMaker 5 Publish Plus or MonacoPROFILER Platinum provides professional software for creating profiles, customizing profile charts, editing profiles and managing colour measurements.

Users benefit from high-end colour management by being able to predictably reproduce colour on all their devices, from input to output. There are clear benefits for those customers who need to colour manage their proofers, create profiles for presses, manage groups of digital or large format printers or use many different types of printing inks, media or other consumables. The Power Bundle takes the guesswork and trial and error out of colour management.

X-Rite’s i1iSis line captures no-filter and UV-cut filter data in a single chart measurement cycle, eliminating the need for multiple cycles to measure multiple data sets. The i1iSis line automatically initiates measurement when paper is fed into the device and optional barcodes can be used for further efficiency with automatic chart recognition. The i1iSis family also recognizes and supports more paper formats, allowing the devices to measure long charts (up to 66 cm) or up to 2,500 colour patches. The use of LEDs (light-emitting diodes) for illumination reduces the need for lamp replacements. X-Rite’s i1 colour software is the basis for spectral colour communications throughout the entire workflow.

The i1iSis was recently awarded Best Colour Management product of 2007 in the software category by the European Digital Press Association. The EDP awards are given for the best and most innovative digital printing products of the year, and are judged on efficiency, performance, quality/price ratio, design and ease-of-use.

Customers should check with their local dealer for pricing information on the i1iSis Power Bundle.
