A new spectrophotometer along with color-management software
GretagMacbeth has announced significant
enhancements to its Eye-One Pro
spectrophotometer and Eye-One Match
3.2 software, and has introduced a new
Eye-One Digital Camera module.
Its b>Eye-One Pro spectrophotometer is
now twice as fast as the original version,
reports the company"?capable of reading
300 color patches in less than a minute.
In addition, it's now fitted with Teflon
pads, creating a smoother gliding action.
Complementing the tool's speed will be an
enhanced version of the Eye-One iO automated
chart reader, due to be released
later this year; the iO will take advantage
of the enhanced speed of the Eye-One Pro
device and calculate automatic chart
measurements in less than 3 min, reports
GretagMacbeth. Owners of original Eye-
One Pro units will be able to trade up to
the new spectrophotometer.
Eye-One Match 3.2, the newest version
of the company's color-management
software for use with the Eye-One Pro, is
now compatible with Mac OS 10.4 (Tiger).
The new version provides users with onestep
calibration on industry monitors such
as the Eizo CG 18, 19, and 21, and on Lacie
Electro b4 models. Eye-One Match 3.2 is
available as a free update to all current
The new Eye-One Digital Camera
module allows users to easily create
accurate ICC digital-camera profiles. It
features two modes: Easy mode, in
which a profile wizard guides the photographer
step-by-step, with verification
along the way; and Advanced mode,
which provides the user with multiple
options to adapt profile settings to specific
photographic conditions (contrast,
exposure, color saturation, etc.). The
module is included in Eye-One Match 3.2
software, and is a free download for Eye-
One Photo owners who purchased after
Dec. 15, 2004 (Digital ColorChecker SG is
required to support the module). (GretagMacbeth: www.gretagmacbeth.com)
