X-Rite i1Publish Pro UVcut Color Management System is a hardware/software system designed for professionals who rely on color accuracy throughout the digital production process, from camera to display to RGB and CMYK+ printers and presses.
The heart of i1Publish's hardware is the i1Pro spectrophotometer, which is used to measure for both emissive (monitors) and reflective (print) profiling. Besides capturing spot colors from almost any surface, it also captures ambient light to profile color-critical working conditions. The i1Publish Pro UVcut package features a fixed UV-cutoff filter, which ensures accuracy when you're working with substrates that contain optical brighteners.
Custom profiles for cameras, monitors (LCD, CRT, and laptop), digital projectors, printers, and presses are created in the i1Publish Pro software suite, whose i1Profiler program combines the best features of its predecessors i1Match, ProfileMaker, and MonacoPROFILER software. Featuring both a wizard-driven interface and an "advanced" mode, the software accommodates a broad range of proficiencies and expertise. i1Publish Pro UVcut provides complete power and control to create the highest-quality ICC profiles.
The suite is optimized for color management in print production. At the core of the software is X-Rite's i1Prism engine, which features a unique iterative profiling technology that allows for profile optimization based on any combination of images, spot colors, or captured colors. Users can select from any of the included digital Pantone color libraries, including the new Pantone Plus Series. You get perfect printed colors every time for workflows that employ up to eight colors, including RGB, CMYK, or CMYK + any four printing.
Using just one software tool, users can optimize color profiles, build profiles using ambient light measurements, and utilize simple yet advanced controls for black generation and separation. Save and reuse assets with simple drag-and-drop operation, and exchange palette information and other color data with anyone in the world using X-Rite's Color Exchange Format (CxF), for the most comprehensive digital color data exchange.
