PantoneLIVE is a suite of products, licenses and services enabling secure access to a database of spectrally defined Pantone® and brand spot color standards via a partner ecosystem.
Digital Color Communication Drives Consistency
The purpose of PantoneLIVE is to share accurate and achievable colors across a packaging print supply chain. This results in more color consistent product on-the-shelf. PantoneLIVE provides common color standards, for brands, designers and printers alike, which are achievable on different substrates, printing presses and ink systems.

Communicate Color Requirements
Communicate accurate brand spot color requirements more effectively, across your entire packaging print supply chain, 24/7, wherever they are being printed.Define standards digitally and set achievable targets
PantoneLIVE provides a way to define and communicate spot colors digitally. It also takes into account the final production conditions under which a color will be reproduced.
Access to the spectral definition of a color better equips the supply chain to manage variables that occur throughout the process.
All supply chain members who have a subscription to PantoneLIVE, are provided instant access to the Master and Dependent Pantone® Colors. In addition, brands can manage and distribute brand equity colors using the PantoneLIVE infrastructure to allow access to approved suppliers.
Achieve color consistency at the shelf, regardless of how and where packaging is produced.
Achieve color consistency at the shelf, regardless of how and where packaging is produced.The ability to source globally without compromising on quality
Brand integrity, color consistency and print quality are more critical than ever. At the same time, brands have the need to globally source their packaging production. PantoneLIVE streamlines and automates the communication of brand color requirements regardless of how, and where the package is to be produced. When a PantoneLIVE color is specified on a printed package, all suppliers produce to the same production standard. ColorCert® closes the communication loop, by providing real-time information from the press run.
All color data in the PantoneLIVE cloud has been measured taking into consideration the latest ISO measurement modes and conditions, as well as other current industry standards. Spectral information in the PantoneLIVE cloud is in a CxF format, the ISO Committee recently adopted X-Rite’s Color Data Exchange format (CxF), as an industry standard.
The end result? No more surprises and a much more efficient and cost-effective supply chain.
X-Rite Pantone has a number of PantoneLIVE partners who are adding significant value to the ecosystem, and we continue to add more.
