Each year Printing News asks their readers which new products made the most difference in their productivity. We’re excited to announce that our very own i1iSis 2 and i1iSis 2 XL are among the winners!
These two automated chart readers are the latest members of the popular i1iSis solutions family for pre-press, pre-media, photo, and pressroom color management and profiling.
In high production environments such as photo processing, large format, fine art and high-speed digital printing, frequent measurement of color test charts to keep color management profiles up to date is a must. With the i1iSis 2, this task no longer needs to be labor-intensive. Simply print the A4 test chart, read it into the i1iSis 2 to process 1,500 patches in just 8 minutes, and check results. It’s this efficiency and convenience that contributed to the high rating with Printing News readers.
In addition to this fast automatic creation of printer profiles, it delivers:
Seamless integration. You don’t need to change anything about your color workflow to take advantage of the i1iSis 2. It fits right in, helping operators address color drift even before it’s visible to the human eye.
Fewer mistakes. The X-Rite i1iSis 2 comes with a built-in vision system that automatically corrects misalignment and barcode reading for chart identification, drastically reducing the risk of human error.
Award-winning i1 spectral technology. The i1iSis 2 captures full spectral data for the charts you measure. The ability to average more than one target means quick analysis for a high volume of charts.
Support for OBAs. Now more than ever, grand format, pre-media, and digital press applications are tasked with managing optically brightened materials. The i1iSis 2 allows you to leverage switchable illumination to capture M0, M1 and M2 in a single chart measurement cycle. Pairing it with i1Profiler will also accommodate a variety of inks and substrates in any viewing condition using Optical Brightening Compensation (OBC).

Compliance with standards. The X-Rite Graphic Arts Standard (XRGA) includes new advances in color technology and changes required to meet ISO-13655. As XRGA-compliant instruments, the i1iSis 2 and i1iSis 2 XL ensure high quality data exchange and workflows in environments where different instrumentation is used. The i1iSis 2 also complies with GRAcoL 2013, SWOP 2013, and ISO 12647-2, FOGRA 51, and FOGRA 52.
Available in two configurations. The i1iSis 2 reads up to 1,500 patches on a single sheet in just eight minutes, while the XL reads up to 2,500 patches on a single A3/Tabloid sheet in just ten.
