The i1Process Control provides color management tools for Canon color imagePRESS digital presses and imageRUNNER ADVANCE C9000 and C7000 Series multifunction office systems. It is based on X-Rite’s color measurement, ICC profiling, and palette-building technology which has been carefully designed to provide an easy and intuitive application that can be used on a daily basis with minimal effort.
X-Rite has now introduced its new i1Prism engine into i1Process Control. This enhanced profiling provides end users with highly accurate printer profiles for the engine; incorporating engine, media and spot color optimization. Integrated with the PANTONE Plus libraries, users can benefit from the PANTONE MATCHING SYSTEM® spot libraries thus enabling a tighter integration with what a customer specifies and the expected printed output. With the added ability to export the library, production can share the optimized color libraries upstream to the prepress and key creative's inside the business, creating higher consistency across critical colors.
This new integration feature enables i1Process Control users to streamline their workflows using X-Rite's color management hardware tools: i1Pro Spectrophotometer, i1iO Automated Scanning Table and i1iSis Automated Chart Readers.
