X-Rite Color Management Solutions Showcased at Graph Expo 2015

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., September 9, 2015 – X-Rite Incorporated, a global leader in color science and technology, and its subsidiary Pantone LLC, today announced that its best-of-breed color management solutions will be showcased in both the ColorHQ and Rutherford Graphic Products booths at Graph Expo 2015, September 12-16 at McCormick Place in Chicago. The X-Rite dealer partners, in booths #535 and #436, respectively, will display a full range of endto-end color workflow solutions designed to fit the needs of prepress, printing and packaging companies of all sizes.


“Recent X-Rite research indicates that brand owners still consider the inability to achieve consistent color across their print and packaging supply chains a significant business issue,” says Chris Winczewski, Vice President of Product Marketing, X-Rite. “We’re dedicated to helping customers eliminate this concern. X-Rite’s dealer partners will feature the X-Rite solutions that printers are using to establish closed-loop color control, dramatically reduce make-ready times, and help minimize ink and substrate waste. These latest X-Rite technologies help printers stay competitive, save on resources, and meet customer delivery schedules.”


X-Rite solutions on display in the ColorHQ and Rutherford Graphics Products booths include:

  • X-Rite eXact Scan, a 2015 recipient of the prestigious InterTech Award and the only handheld spectrophotometer on the market that can measure a true M1 Part One (as opposed to a simulation) and capture M0, M2 and M3 simultaneously for both spot and scan readings. 
  • X-Rite IntelliTrax, an automated color management scanning solution offering press-side color control and fast color correction on press; an ideal solution for high-end, high speed printing operations.
  • X-Rite i1 software and solutions including the new i1iSis 2 for automated printer profile creation, now supporting M1 measurement standards, and the i1Pro 2, the standard for color profiling and calibration.


“ColorHQ experts will be available in our booth to educate Graph Expo visitors about the latest developments in the art and science of color management. Attendees will see first-hand how they can leverage X-Rite products like IntelliTrax with MeasureColor software for fast color correction to reduce make ready times,” says Bob Miller, President of ColorHQ.


“At the Rutherford Graphics Products booth, attendees will see how the X-

Rite eXact Scan’s easy-to-use scanning features couple with our ExactLoop system to make digitally-driven, closed-loop color control an affordable reality for printers of all sizes and budgets,” says Jay Rutherford, President of Rutherford Graphic Products.
