The i1Publish Pro 2 Software (Upgrade A) from X-Rite is a software suite with an upgrade solution for ultimate, professional level color management. It includes the i1Profiler v1.x, ColorChecker Camera Calibration, PANTONE Color Manager, ColorChecker Classic target [mini] and ColorChecker Proof target softwares. Its reliability, versatility and accurate color calibrating software helps save time, ink, paper and provides all the functionalities featured in i1Publish Pro 2 solution. The upgrade package includes i1Basic Pro 2 and i1Publish Software Upgrade.
To be eligible for this upgrade you must own one of the following:
i1Basic, i1Design LT or i1Photo LT with any additional i1Match module added, i1Photo, i1Photo SG, i1Photo Pro, i1Proof, i1XT,i1Xtreme, ProfileMaker 5*, MonacoPROFILER 4*
If you originally purchased i1Photo, i1Photo SG, i1Proof, i1xt or i1xtreme - buy i1Publish Upgrade A to get full i1Publish Pro functionality. All profilemaker 5 packages are eligible for the upgrade - purchase i1Publish Pro 2 Upgrade A (Use your existing Hasp4 dongles, still keep your license flags for profilemaker 5 software and receive all the new software, hardware and components.)
Note: *During the upgrade process, i1Profiler will check if the license flags on the instrument qualify for the level of purchased upgrade.
MonacoPROFILER 4.x owners are also eligible for this upgrade, but need to submit their dongle serial number to X-Rite prior to ordering. For further assistance, please contact a B&H phone sales representative.
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 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 digital PANTONE color libraries, including the PANTONE PLUS SERIES. This results in superlative image quality and color accuracy.
By 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. This enables profile generation workflows to be created or shared with others quickly, easily, and efficiently. The 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 includes a unique feature that 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.
