X-Rite has recently unveiled its latest automated colour chart reader – Eye-One iSis. It’s based on award-winning Eye-One technology, now built into a platform for maximum automation and minimum user intervention. The unit is so simple to use, there’s not even a button— users insert the chart and measurements start.
The iSis is a natural extension of the Eye-One product line, and is designed for colour professionals who need to measure many charts or create ICC profiles in quantity. iSis is available in two sizes, a standard version for A4+ or letter size and an XL version for A3+ or tabloid charts. The XL model can read up to 2,500 patches printed on a single A3 page. Charts are fed automatically and misfeeds are corrected by a built-in optical alignment system. In just under 8 minutes, the iSis can read 1,500 patches for both no-filter and UVcut measurements.
It is designed to be used with X-Rite’s high-end profiling software, including ProfileMaker 5 and Monaco Profiler. X-Rite has also made iSis easy for third party software makers to add support for iSis in their RIPs and other colour products.
