X-Rite and Canon Europe announce a new version of X-Rite’s i1Process Control colour management solution which is sold with the Canon imagePRESS digital colour presses. i1Process Control version 5.1 includes the X-Rite i1Pro 2 colour calibration and profiling solution, the new standard for colour perfectionists, along with updated i1Process Control software specifically tailored for a Canon workflow.
It can be optionally bundled with X-Rite’s i1iSis 2 XL, an A3/SRA3 automated chart reader to automate printer profile creation.
“This latest version of i1Process Control ensures that print service providers will be able to take full advantage of the exceptional colour capabilities of Canon’s line of imagePRESS digital colour presses,” said Chris Winczewski, vice president,  Strategy and Product Planning, X-Rite. “By tailoring the X-Rite solution for a Canon workflow, we’ve reduced the need for manual adjustments to colour, improving overall productivity. We’ve also made it easier than ever to accurately print spot colours using named colour profiles, a growing requirement in today’s demanding market.”
The X-Rite i1Process Control also includes support for measurement condition M1, the standard method of measuring substrates and imaging or proofing colourants enhanced with optical brighteners. In addition, measurement data can now be saved in CxF format in compliance with ISO 17972-1:2015.
