X-Rite’s New Display and Projector Color Calibration Solutions

X-Rite, Incorporated (NASDAQ: XRIT) announced the immediate availability of i1Display Pro and ColorMunki Display, two all-new technologically advanced hardware and software solutions for color calibration and profiling of displays, laptops and projectors.

The i1Display Pro is the ultimate choice for discerning photographers, designers or any imaging professionals looking for the highest on screen color accuracy. i1Display Pro offers power users ‘Advanced’ user-defined settings and in-depth quality assurance tools for precise color control, as well as predefined ‘Basic’ settings to provide them with the perfect balance of speed and options to suit their individual workflow and changing needs.

The ColorMunki Display is the ideal color solution for both passionate and professional photographers and designers looking for professional color results in an easy-to-use format that doesn’t require in-depth knowledge of color science. ColorMunki Display features an ‘Easy’ mode with a selection of one-click presets and an ‘Advanced’ mode, with easy to navigate wizard-driven options for more control. ColorMunki Display provides users everything they need in an easy to use solution that delivers high quality calibration and profile results in no time.

“Professional and passionate imaging professionals who are concerned about color perfection know that a properly calibrated and profiled display is an essential and critical component for a successful and efficient creative workflow,” said Thomas Kunz, X-Rite’s Market Manager, Imaging. “The new i1Display Pro and ColorMunki Display solutions provide all levels of users with perfectly calibrated displays and projectors, consistently and easily. This ensures a user’s digital files will be viewed and shared accurately to enable faithful reproduction every time.”

These two new solutions feature the industry’s most advanced colorimeter bundled with new display and projector profiling software to ensure unrivaled color accuracy and consistency now and in the future. Both i1Display Pro and ColorMunki Display devices feature an advanced, high-end, optical system with custom-designed filters that offer superior color measurement results on all modern display technologies and is fully updatable for future display technologies.

The new all-in-one colorimeter design also combines three important functions – ambient light measurement, display profiling, and projector profiling. An, integrated, ambient measurement diffuser makes it seamless to take ambient light measurements of the users work environment. Rotate the ambient diffuser out of position and it now acts as a tabletop stand for positioning of the device when creating projector profiles, or use the integrated tripod mount. Finally, the device is positioned on the display using an integrated counterweight with push button action to easily adjust the position for display profiling.

The new i1Display Pro and ColorMunki Display also incorporate the next generation display and projector profiling software with features like Ambient Light Smart Control that measures and compensates for ambient lighting conditions (for color accuracy regardless of the viewing conditions) and FlareCorrect™ for the measurement of display surface flare which automatically compensates for on-screen glare. The Intelligent Iterative Profiling technology of these solutions enables users to attain the highest quality color results on all modern display technologies including new LED backlight and wide gamut displays. X-Rite’s Automatic Display Control (ADC) automatically adjusts the user’s display hardware, further simplifying the process while attaining high quality results.
