X-Rite i1Studio overview

  • 1Description

With the all-in-one i1Studio Spectrophotometer from x-rite you can profile your monitors, projectors, scanners, mobile devices, and printers.

The included i1Studio Software offers a wealth of color calibration functionality including the ability to calibrate and profile monitors, projectors, scanners, and printers all with an easy to navigate interface. Couple this intuitive software with the Mini ColorChecker ClassicTarget for cameras and you can take advantage of a standard 24-patch target to assist in creating custom camera profiles including a custom white balance, and much more. The i1Studio even works with your iOS mobile device via the ColorTRUE Mobile App allowing for mobile to desktop color matching.

i1Studio Device
  • The i1Studio Spectrophotometer is compact and easy to carry in its own protective bag so you are never without the means to create an expertly calibrated and profiled workflow whether at home, in studio, or on the road
  • i1Studio Software for Monitors, Projectors, Scanners, and Printers:
    The i1Studio software, based on X-Rite i1Profiler software, provides an easy to navigate interface that delivers expertly calibrated and profiled monitors (including video presets), projectors, scanners, and printers
  • ColorChecker Camera Calibration Software and Mini ColorChecker ClassicTarget for Cameras:
    Utilizing the included industry standard 24-patch target, you'll be able to create custom camera profiles (single or dual illuminant), set a custom white balance, and have a neutral starting point no matter what light you are shooting in for a more streamlined editing process. The software includes both a desktop application and an Adobe Lightroom plug-in
  • ColorTRUE Mobile App for Mobile Devices:
    Calibrate your Apple iOS mobile devices for a true mobile to desktop color match of all your images. Download the ColorTRUE app from the Apple App Store.
Monitor Calibration and Profiling
  • Intelligent Iterative Profiling:
    An adaptive technology that produces optimized results for maximum color accuracy on each unique display every time you profile.
  • Flare Correct measures and adjusts your display profile for reduced contrast ratios caused by flare light (or glare) falling on surface of the display. By accurately measuring your effective display contrast ratio, you'll have an even more accurate display profile. X-Rite Ambient Light Measurement automatically determines the optimum display luminance for comparing prints to your display, based on a measurement of the lighting conditions where prints will be viewed.
  • Video Standards Support: NTSC, PAL SECAM, Rec. 709, Rec. 2020, and DCI-P3.
  • Extended User Controls:
    Custom control of white point, luminance, contrast ratio, and gamma. Also, measure other displays or light sources and use as targets.
  • Multiple Monitor Profiling:
    Color match up to four separate displays for color accuracy across all your workflow.
  • Profile Optimization:
    Create unique patch sets for optimal results.
  • Profile Validation and Reminder:
    Use include images or your own to view before and after results or use the 3D profile gamut viewer.
Projector Calibration and Profiling
Now, your projected presentations can look the same as your monitor. Build an accurate projector profile in just minutes, it's as easy as building a monitor profile. The process takes all the room conditions into consideration - projected colors, screen color, and room lighting - so you can be confident that your projected images are showing the way you intended.
Scanner Calibration and Profiling
Scanner profiling is super easy. Simply scan and crop your target (sold separately) to generate a high-quality ICC profile. Supports these targets: ColorChecker Classic, ColorChecker Digital SG, Reflective IT 8.7/2, Transmissive 4x5, and 35mm IT8.7/1.
RGB and CMYK Printer Profiling
  • Intelligent iterative profiling technology ensures your output is reproduced accurately from print to print and from printer to printer, delivering professional (alt: expert) quality results for smoothness, highlight, and shadow detail.
  • i1Studio's superfast scanning can rapidly measure test charts in less than one minute! Simply scan one 50-patch test chart, and i1Studio will learn how your printer behaves with these colors and dynamically generate a second chart of 50 patches. Then print and scan this second chart of 50 patches and your profile is perfected.
  • Option to save your test targets as TIFF files to print later, or for use on a remote printer. i1Studio also supports various paper sizes.
  • i1Studio even has the ability to optimize your printer profile for specific colors, flesh tones, or captured spot colors. i1Studio creates a 3rd test target based on extracted colors from an image and/or spot colors captured by your i1Studio device. Load your profile, generate your test target, measure, and save. It's that easy.
BW Calibration and Profiling
Now you can generate black and white paper profiles to take advantage of new printer technology that makes printing black and white on inkjet papers as easy as printing color images. i1Studio allows the creation of monochrome profiles for black and white in neutral tones as well as with sepia and platinum look profiles. Whether you're printing your fine art black and white images or reproducing vintage photos, i1Studio gives you the advantage of black and white printer profiles.
The i1Studio from X-Rite takes your start-to-finish color-managed workflow to an expert level with exceptional accuracy and consistency allowing you more time to focus on creating more images.

    X-Rite i1Studio reviews

    i1Studio Spectrophotometer is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spectrotastic! Worked great right out of the box. The software installed easily, and worked flawlessly. My first printed results after the device/software adjusted my Macs screen; and my Lightroom 5 / Canon Pro 100 printer all worked together to produce spot on results. I still had to adjust the print brightness by adding 1/2 stop to the exposure in Lightroom before printing, but the colors were an exact match for my screen. Ill continue to work with it using three different photo papers, but Im very happy with the device so far.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from i1Studio fails on MacOS High Sierra / case-sensitive FS Summary: Device working properly, but i1Studio software doesn't work with MacOS High Sierra and doesn't support case-sensitive file system (HFS+). Additionally software lacks of certain features from other XRite calibration tools, such as the ambient light monitoring & calibration reminder Details: Last saturday I received the i1Studio device. I downloaded the i1Studio application from the http://xritephoto.com/geti1studio URL and installed it on a Macbook Pro with MacOS High Sierra. After the corresponding laptop reset, the i1Studio device was properly recognized when the device was connected through USB (MacOS showed a message). The issue is that the i1Studio briefly opened and crashed every single time, sending an exception. I did perform a clean MacOS high sierra clean install, and nothing. I then installed the default operating system (Maverick) and formatted the hard drive having upper / lower case sensitive format, and I got a different error... the i1Studio failed to look for an Eizo library. After checking the error message and looking on the i1Studio package contents, I realized that the application is looking on a wrong directory... the package has a EIZO directory (all uppercase), while the error indicated that the library was looked into Eizo directory. After formatting again the hard drive with a file system that isn't case sensitive this time (no differentiation from upper & lower case), I got that the Maverick version wasn't supported. Then I installed MacOS Sierra (10.12) with no case-sensitive file system and worked! The i1Studio software should be updated to work having a case-sensitive environment (HFS+ has both case / non-case sensitive options) and check why isn't working on MacOS high sierra (maybe new Apple FileSystem format?) BTW, I did install the i1Studio on a Windows 10 machine, and worked flawlessly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game Changer for Calibration I have used the spyder 4 & 5 studio products and the X-Rite is far beyond the capabilities of those products. The software is really what hurts this product as it is not as end-user friendly as the spyder software. That said, this calibrates more accurately and the printer calibration is just as good with prints matching very closely.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy and such great results After “wrestling “ with my prints on several photo printer , I purchased the i1studio.  Results are stunning , no more colorcast , all colors are popping up ..  I had already the i1system to calibrated my screen. The process is sleek and fast. The save option is a great addition , letting you save your process , giving more time for the print to dry . The B&W is also a plus , letting you converting color photos at printing .. Using Lightroom, I convert my photo to B&W then print using the ice profile. Thanks X-rite  , nice évolution from colormunki

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mechanically, it is a mess! Everybody who is involved in digital photography know that you need to calibrate all your equipment if you want to enjoy faithful colors. That is a don't deal. I have had two x-write devices. I discarded the first one because x-rite wanted me to buy an upgrade for the driver. Horrible! Apparently they changed the policy with this one, so, I bought it this August. It looks nice and simple to use. However, actually calibrating a display is messy for two reasons: 1. You cannot use it to calibrate the monitor unless it is inside its soft case. Bad design, because since it is soft, it cannot be held flat against the monitor and it tilts. 2. I could not find a way to keep it flat against the monitor also, because the counter weight that is used to hold it against the screen it actually pulls it from the bottom. I had to press it manually during the whole process so the ambient light would not affect the results. 3. IN in order to operate the unit, it has two be switch to two positions. One for Calibrating the device; the second, to actually measure the response of the monitor. However, to switch between the two position you must grab the dial by going inside the case, since it is a tricky rotation. If you move the unit too much, you need to go back and recalibrate the unit and try to switch to measuring mode. Still, I am not convinced that the resulting profile is any good, since I see the display pretty soft in the contrast area, but I need more testing to make sure that are not my aging eyes that are fooling me. The worst "feature" is having to put on the case to calibrate de display, because it make the device some what round, and it does not rest flat on the screen as it is pictured in the add. To me, it is bad design.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have for digital darkroom workflow It does an excellent job to match my 27" iMac with different kinds of paper printed on Canon Pro-100. Before I was frustrated with unpredictable color cast in prints. After the monitor and paper were calibrated, it made day-night difference, they are now consistent. It is not cheap, but I am happy with the investment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product It was very easy to use. The software was hassle free to install. I was able to calibrate my monitor in less than 5 minutes. I was also able to create my printer profile without issues.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Necessary This is a "must have" if you want an acceptable degree of quality, acuracy and consistency in your printing. This spectrophotometer makes the process very easy.
