i1Profiler Software
With the i1Profiler software, X-Rite has developed a next generation toolset that combines the best features of its i1Match, ProfileMaker and MonacoPROFILER solutions. i1Profiler software offers an unprecedented level of flexibility to address the needs of digital imaging workflows. It features a number of unique color management capabilities, adding to users' power and control in creating professional quality profiles. Users can choose between a 'basic', wizard-driven interface, or an 'advanced', user-driven interface to create high quality, precise, custom color profiles for monitors, projectors, printers, and presses.

At the core of i1Profiler is X-Rite's i1Prism engine, whose unique iterative profiling technology lets users build printer profiles for up to 8-color workflows (RGB, CMYK and CMYK plus any 4). This reliable, iterative technology is extremely robust, allowing for further 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 PANTONE PLUS SERIES. This results in superlative image quality and color accuracy.

Using just one software tool, users can optimize their profiles, build profiles with ambient light measurements, correct for optical brighteners in their papers, and utilize simple yet advanced controls for black separation. i1Profiler lets users save and reuse assets or preferred settings with drag-and-drop functionality -- meaning profile generation workflows can be created or shared with others quickly, easily, and efficiently. This exchange functionality also allows users to communicate palette information and other color data across the office or across the globe using X-Rite's Color Exchange Format (CxF) for the most comprehensive digital color data exchange.
PANTONE Color Manager
PANTONE Color Manager will dynamically keep all digital PANTONE libraries up to date, accurate and ready to use in Adobe and Quark creative applications. The tight integration of i1Profiler with PANTONE Color Manager swatch bridging software gives users seamless access to all PANTONE colors for precise spot color matching, and unparalleled accuracy of spot color reproduction. It also makes multiple color space selections simple for easy color translation to multiple applications and is ideal for imaging professionals working with brand color specifications.

PANTONE Color Manager includes a unique feature, which simplifies the creation and distribution of corporate brand style guides. Designers can include palette information, digital color data, and output profiles to ensure that their brand color is faithfully reproduced in any print production process around the corner or across the globe.
ColorChecker Proof
To help users perform a visual color evaluation of their results using physical standards, i1Publish includes include the new ColorChecker Proof, a 24-patch ColorChecker Classic target precut for direct viewing against a printed target. When used in proper lighting conditions, this offers a much more precise visual verification of output quality, so that the user can quickly determine if any adjustment is needed.
ColorChecker Passport Software and Mini Classic Target
With the ColorChecker Passport Camera Calibration Application and Lightroom plug-in, users can quickly and easily build DNG profiles for Adobe Imaging solutions including Lightroom, Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Camera Raw (ACR), and Adobe Bridge. This advanced camera profiling technology provides excellent results with just the mini 24-patch ColorChecker Classic target. It produces DNG profiles that work exceptionally well, even in unusual or artificial light sources. Plus, software auto-detection will locate the target automatically. Whether shooting with just one camera or multiple cameras, photographers can easily establish an accurate color foundation and maintain control of their colors.

            Comments about X-Rite i1Publish Software (Upgrade A):

            Owning the Gretag Macbeth i1Proof package (purchased back in 2005) it always annoyed me not being able to generate RGB printer profiles with patch prints bigger than 45 patches. Additionally i1Match for profiling monitors didn't work any more reliably since OS X has evolved beyond 10.6.8. And after changing my printer and the RIP software I was in need of new icc printer profiles. So the time had come to opt for a new solution. While checking out the Gretag Macbeth site I was transferred to X-Rite and found this upgrade package which looked quite promising in the sense of being able to use all the i1Proof package hardware.

            After software installation one has to run through a licensing process which can be done on- and off-line. The latter needs a couple more steps. The previous worked out flawlessly.

            Actually I have done a few new icc printer profiles for Epson printers with 400 and 800 patch prints (1600 patch prints are possible as well). Printing with those profiles looks quite accurate. Furthermore all computer monitors and displays in our household have been profiled. Those features work properly. I cannot comment on the other features right now. This is the reason for my four star rating.

            All in all a welcome and useful upgrade/update in order to keep an old package (i1Proof) alive.

                        This software makes profiles for displays and printers. It is derived from Gretag-Macbeth ProfileMaker, and Monaco Profiler. The profiles are most similar to those made by Monaco Profiler. There is a new target generator which will make targets with any number of patches. The software will also optimize an existing profile, which is a new feature. I found the CMYK printer profiles to be very smooth and accurate, a definite improvement over its predecessors. The software doesn't make scanner profiles, which might be a disappointment for some.

                          I upgraded for Eye One Match and it was good. But this software is more detailed to where I could see a difference in my prints from old paper profile to the new profile.

                          I upgraded it from ProfileMaker 5 to created printer profiles for my EPSON Pro9880.
                          It is very smooth gradation and good neutral gray and color tone is not bad.
