(NASDAQ: XRIT), the world leader in color management, measurement and communication technologies, and its wholly owned subsidiary Pantone, the global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industries, today announced that they will showcase their latest line of print and pre-press color management solutions at GRAPH EXPO, October 3-6 McCormick Place South, Chicago, IL in booth 448.
At GRAPH EXPO, and for the first time in North America, X-Rite will demonstrate its next generation color profiling solution featuring i1Profiler, the company’s brand new color profiling software and PANTONE Link, a new color swatch bridging software. i1Profiler and PANTONE Link offer unprecedented color quality for up to 8 color printing workflows (CMYK + any four), iterative profiling, ease of use for both advanced and novice users, peer-level workflow exchange, QA validation and verification against ISO, simplified color space selection, and spot color accuracy.
GRAPH EXPO visitors will be able to see the latest version (v.6) of X-Rite’s InkFormulation software. Developed for ink manufacturers and printers who formulate their own ink, InkFormulation 6 provides a fast, accurate and consistent ink formulation, formula creation, storage, approval and retrieval solution for offset, flexographic, gravure and screen-printing inks. The new InkFormulation 6 software gives ink suppliers and printers more flexibility over recipes and assortments, improves basic materials handling, automatically determines the right ink film thickness and helps to eliminate hazardous waste.
The new X-Rite PrintCheck and PressOptimizer will also be showcased on booth 448. Available in four affordable, easy-to-use software packages, the new solutions are designed for printers who want to print to international ISO standards using industry specifications for process control like G7 or PSO, or for those that need to set their own tolerances. The new, wizard-driven solutions allow print buyers and pressroom operators to simplify workflows and follow a job from contract to delivery and ensure quality consistency and standards compliance.
