Pantone Introduces GoeBridge Coated
Company is also shipping Pantone ColorMunki Create.
Pantone has unveiled Pantone GoeBridge coated and Pantone Color Cue 2.1, and is now shipping Pantone ColorMunki Create.
Pantone GoeBridge coated assists designers and printers as they accurately visualize and evaluate how the 2000-plus solid colors in the Pantone Goe System will reproduce in CMYK on coated paper. The portable fan guide provides conversion formulas for CMYK, sRGB, and HTML. The guide is printed using ISO-certified inks on No.-1 grade, 100-pound text-weight coated offset stock. Price: $129 ($99 introductory price).
Pantone Color Cue 2.1 is the latest version of the company’s portable color-identification device. Color Cue 2.1 now includes seven Pantone Libraries including the complete Goe System, both coated and uncoated, plus the Pantone Fashion + Home Smart Color System as well as the Pantone Paint + Interiors color libraries. Color Cue 2.1 also includes a new LCD screen with configurable displays for easy viewing; the device records the last 30 colors measured for later reference and is powered by a standard 9-volt battery. Price: $349 ($299 introductory price).
Pantone ColorMunki Create is now shipping. Announced earlier this year as part of the ColorMunki family, ColorMunki Create automates color-palette creation with a variety of tools for color selection. Colors can be chosen from system-level color pickers, Pantone Color Libraries (including PMS and Goe), keyword searches, or color harmonies. Users have the ability to snap any color from a built-in library to Pantone Colors; palettes can then be seamlessly imported into design applications including Adobe Creative Suite and QuarkXPress, as well as other applications. A palette synchronization function automatically updates any changes in palettes to the design applications. ColorMunki Create also includes a monitor calibrator to ensure colors are viewed accurately onscreen. Price: $149.
