X-Rite eXact with Scan Option Recipient of Prestigious InterTech™ Technology Award
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., July 27th, 2015 – X-Rite Incorporated, a global leader in color science and technology, and its subsidiary Pantone LLC, today announced that the X-Rite eXact spectrophotometer with Scan Option was the recipient of the 2015 Printing Industries of America InterTech Technology Award for Innovative Excellence. Since 1978, the InterTech Technology Awards have honored the development of technologies predicted to have a major impact on the graphic arts and related industries.
“We are honored to be a recipient of this prestigious award,” said Ron Voigt, XRite’s President. “eXact with Scan Option continues X-Rite’s legacy of innovation and provides printing and packaging firms with much-needed capabilities for improving color accuracy, efficiency, and the ability to more easily comply with industry standards.”
The X-Rite eXact spectrophotometer with Scan Option is a next generation handheld color measurement solution that enables printers and packaging converters to truly understand, control, manage and communicate color across the entire color workflow, avoiding reprints and rework.
“In a thorough evaluation process, the judges noted several important innovations in the X-Rite eXact with Scan Option,” said Dr. Mark Bohan, Vice President of Technology and Research for the Printing Industries of America. “This included its flexibility in allowing accurate measurements when no track scanning is possible, especially important in many packaging applications; the full extent of supported M-Series measurements as specified in ISO 3664, allowing for predictable results when optical brightening agents and fluorescent materials are involved; and the speed with which color measurement can be achieved in the pressroom.”
