If you are a photographer, graphic artist, prepress service provider or color imaging professional that requires color accuracy on your monitor, there is a new solution for you. X-Rite last week released new color management products for calibrating monitors, projectors and laptops. The i1Display Pro is an advanced colorimeter bundled with completely new display and projector profiling software compatible with all modern display technologies including new LED backlight and wide gamut displays.
The i1Display Pro colorimeter features new optical technology and filter sets, and an integrated ambient measurement diffuser to take continuous measurements and compensate for the ambient lighting conditions around user's work environment. FlareCorrect measures the display surface flare and automatically compensates for on-screen glare.
Key features of the i1Display pro include:
- Five times faster measurement speed measures more color patches in less time
- The ability to use three different size patch sets
- Custom color patch sets derived from any image or Pantone colors
- Fully upgradeable for future display technologies
- Multiple monitor and work group matching
- Measurement, compensation and ongoing monitoring of ambient lighting conditions
- FlareCorrect for display surface flare measurement and compensation
- Display QA workflow feature provides display quality check and trending information
- See instant before and after calibration results using your own images
- Display uniformity test to show white point and luminance uniformity on display
- Automatic Display Control (ADC) technology automates the adjustment of your display’s hardware (brightness/backlight, contrast, and color temperature) to speed up the profiling process and eliminate manual adjustments
The X-Rite i1Display Pro sells for $269 and X-Rite is offering a $40 rebate until September 30, 2011 if you trade in your old colorimeter.
X-Rite also released the ColorMunki Display aimed at designers for display calibration using software with a more simplified wizard interface for $189.
