Among those are:
- eXact Xp which supports the measurement modes M0, M1, M2 and includes all of the same features as the other devices in the eXact Family of spectrophotometers, including X-Rite eXact Scan.
- ColorCert 2.7: The ColorCert Suite of software products provides real-time color and print quality process control and reporting to help packaging printers and converters better manage the complexities of CMYK, extended gamut, and spot color workflows, regardless of the printing process, substrate, or industry standard. For brand owners, ColorCert provides an overview of supply chain performance to ensure accurate and consistent color across regional or global partners.
- New in ColorCert 2.7: Improved flexibility in the measurement and scoring for substrates by making substrate standards optional for spot color workflows and allowing users the ability to measure but not score substrates. This increased level of customization allows print and packaging operations of all types and sizes to benefit from ColorCert.
X-Rite can offer guidance in helping operators better adjust ink density or strength to reach target colours faster through the new BestMatch feature.
Recent developments include metrics such as ink strength, white ink opacity, whiteness added to support CMYK, extended gamut, and/or spot colour packaging workflows.
The company has also announced new connectivity to X-Rite InkFormulation Software for better communication between the press room and the ink room. Press measurements can be sent directly to InkFormulation Software for fast, efficient reformulation when required. This and other improvements to ColorCert InkRoom Tools allow for fast, easy quality assurance during formulation and dispensing workflows. Communication with X-Rite IntelliTrax2 automated colour measurement solution, X-Rite Color iQC quality assurance software and BST eltromat IPQ Spectral inline colour measurement device has been improved to streamline colour workflow even further.
