Instruments bundled with Monaco software
X-Rite, which makes a variety of color-measuring instruments for industries in which color-accuracy is critical, has teamed up with Monaco Systems to offer X-Rite Color Ensembles. Designed for creative professionals engaged in design, prepress, and photography, the packages of software and hardware offer users color-management solutions with an easy-to-user interface.
Each X-Rite Color Ensemble package includes the DTP41/UV or DTP41UV/T autoScan spectrophotometer, an X-Rite DTP92 monitor optimizer or MonacoOPTIX colorimeter, and MonacoPROOF or MonacoPROFILER color-management software. In other words, each ensemble not only provides all tools for building profiles, but also profile-editing tools with which users can customize profiles for special requirements such as maintaining corporate colors. Ensembles are available for market segments ranging from entry-level users creating profiles for desktop inkjet proofers to prepress technicians and press operators working with high-end platesetters and printing presses.
