The i1Pro 3 Plus is a spectral colour measurement solution designed for imaging, print and textile professionals who need advanced calibration and colour profiling capabilities to handle wide-format and industrial printing applications.
X-Rite Incorporated and Pantone LLC are proud to announce that the i1Pro 3 Plus with i1iO chart reader received a coveted Printing United Alliance 2020 Product of the Year Award for spectrophotometer devices.
‘Winning the Product of Year Award is further validation of X-Rite’s commitment to innovation and delivering colour measurement solutions designed to meet the evolving needs of digital printers and the variety of materials they support,’ said Ray Cheydleur, Printing and Imaging Product Portfolio Manager, X-Rite. ‘With the i1Pro 3 Plus and i1iO, printers can create ICC profiles for almost any substrate and calibrate print production devices for the highest level of colour accuracy.’
The i1Pro 3 Plus features a larger 8mm aperture to support new materials used in digital printing applications such as ceramics, textiles, glass, metal, wood, vinyl, plastics, thin films, cardboard, paper and more. It simultaneously measures M0, M1, and M2 in a single pass and supports transmission scanning for backlit signage applications. It also offers a polarisation filter that reduces specular highlights and shadows on fabrics and ceramics. With the addition of the i1iO chart reader, the i1Pro 3 Plus can be used in automated measurement workflows, resulting in an easier and faster process from manual readings.
‘One of the things I like best about our competition is that it is juried, and judges are basing their decisions on objective criteria. With outstanding entries like X-Rite i1Pro 3 Plus with i1iO, they had their work cut out for them,’ said Ray Weiss, Director of Digital Print Programmes, Printing United Alliance. ‘The Product of the Year competition represents the best of the best among commercial hardware, software, consumables, and industrial and screen equipment. Congratulations to all the winners.’
