X-Rite Announces ColorMunki Smile, a New Entry-Level Color Calibration Solution

ColorMunki Smile provides amazingly simple monitor calibration

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., (September 18, 2012) – X-Rite, Incorporated, the world leader in color management, measurement and communication technologies, announces today a new addition to the ColorMunki family of color calibration solutions – the ColorMunki Smile. Ideal for photo hobbyists, design enthusiasts, gamers and any other users looking for the easiest way to color correct their computer monitors, ColorMunki Smile offers a simple and affordable option for beginner color perfectionists.

ColorMunki Smile includes a color measurement device and very simple software. Thanks to a wizard-based user interface that uses graphics and video animation, users just need to follow the on-screen instructions that walk them through the quick and easy calibration process. Best of all, users don’t need to know anything about color science to get good quality results with the ColorMunki Smile.

“ColorMunki Smile features advanced color measurement technologies that X-Rite is known for while providing beginner color enthusiasts with an easy-to-use solution for calibrating monitors,” said Thomas Kunz, X-Rite’s Market Manager, Imaging. “With the introduction of ColorMunki Smile, users can now be sure that their monitors always accurately display the true colors of their photographs, videos, games and web browsing experiences.”

Using the same color profile technology as X-Rite’s professional-level color calibration products, ColorMunki Smile provides color accuracy on commonly used LED and LCD displays.

Users can also calibrate multiple monitors to accurately show colors. ColorMunki Smile software automatically detects when multiple monitors are connected to a single Mac or PC computer and allows users to color correct each one.  

ColorMunki Smile extends the X-Rite portfolio of Display products by now offering an entry level display product. Also available for more advanced users is the ColorMunki Display and for professional users – the i1Display Pro.  

Availability
ColorMunki Smile is available now from X-Rite (North America) and Pantone online stores and also from the company’s worldwide network of resellers for an MSRP of $99. ColorMunki Smile includes a colorimeter with counterweight, ColorMunki Smile software for calibrating monitors, and Quick Start Guide.
