  • Lion Compatibility for X-Rite Color Solutions

    Apple has announced that the new OS 10.7 Lion will no longer support software that relies on Rosetta. This directly affects X-Rite's retired i1Match, ProfileMaker and MonacoPROFILER applications. However, the current i1Profiler and ColorMunki software does not rely on Rosetta and is fully compatible with Apple OS systems from 10.5.8, 10.6 and the new 10.7 Lion.

    While we recognize there may be some workarounds such as creating a dual-boot Mac where one volume contains Lion and another runs an older version of the Mac OS, this is not ideal for most users. Therefore, X-Rite is providing our customers with upgrade paths so they can continue using X-Rite imaging solutions if they choose to upgrade to Lion.

    The below chart provides the detailed information regarding appropriate upgrade paths based on customer's original purchased solution. Look for your solution, listed alphabetically, to determine the best Lion compatible upgrade path.

  • New version of X-Rite's EasyTrax now available

    A Special Announcement from X-Rite

    We are now shipping a new enhanced version of EasyTrax, the industry's most affordable, semi-automated press-side color scanning solution. This new version now features support for Windows 7, additional functionality for customers with perfecting presses to handle up to 8 colors, support of Japan Color libraries, an enhanced Wizard-style editor interface, and a series of easy-to-follow animated tutorials.

    With these new enhancements, users will be able to get up and running even faster, with everything they need at their fingertips. The unique editor interface will walk the user through every step of set-up.

    For customers with more advanced needs, EasyTrax now enables perfecting presses to support up to 8 ink units with the advanced ISO/G7 module, whether using a CMYK, Multi-Color or N-Color workflow.

    The ISO standards and G7 Process Control Module is ideal for customers who want to maximize their process control efficiency by printing to international standards. These features help process color printers work to ISO targets using specific ISO inks and paper stocks. With easy to understand measurement results graphs and reporting, the press operator can quickly see what adjustments need to be made on press to be within the targets.
