For automated color management for scanners
At Drupa, GretagMacbeth introduced the Eye-One iO, which is designed to automate color management for scanners. For the creative professional, the Eye-One iO is a scanning table in which an Eye-One Pro spectrophotometer is mounted. The Eye-One Pro then moves back and forth to capture the color information from a test chart.
The iO comes with two scanning options--white backing for use with color management applications; and black backing to meet ISO specifications. It also offers a transparent base to measure various transparent materials. In addition, the iO enables characterization of thick to very thick substrates, such as ones used in textile printing or in direct printing applications onto thick substrates (ceramic tiles, for instance).
The Eye-One iO, with its automated workflow, allows for faster test chart readings, lowers the necessary skill level for operators, and reduces the risk for error. The Eye-One iO will be available later in 2004. (GretagMacbeth: www.gretagmacbeth.com)
