Color management, color measurement and communication technologies developer X-Rite, Inc., Grand Rapids, Mich., announces that X-Rite’s new i1Profiler software was selected by Hewlett-Packard as the firm’s profiling application of choice for HP Scitex wide- and super-wide format printers for signage and industrial applications.
Through this licensing agreement, HP's support and engineering teams will be equipped with X-Rite’s i1Profiler software and i1Pro spectrophotometers to create standard ICC profiles to embed into all HP Scitex printers and to additionally provide their customers with custom ICC profiles needed for their specific wide-format color-critical production environments. The ICC profiles generated by X-Rite’s i1Profiler offer color accuracy unrivaled by any competitive solution available on the market. Using custom ICC profiles, users will be able to achieve the best color quickly knowing that, if needed, they can further enhance it through iteration using additional patches or spot colors. This iterative capability offers an unprecedented level of color control over the output quality of their HP Scitex wide format imaging workflows. In addition, X-Rite has further improved its patch recognition algorithm to have a clear and error-free reading of test charts even when printer resolution is low, which improves the already excellent user friendliness of X-Rite color management solutions.
