GMG, a developer and supplier of color management and proofing systems, has announced that customers who own X-Rite i1 measuring instruments can purchase the new i1Pro 2 spectrophotometer for a special price, starting at $1221, as part of a campaign that will end on November 30, 2013. To get the i1Pro 2 at the reduced price, the old i1 device has to be returned to GMG via an authorized dealer. GMG is offering attractive bundles comprising a ProofControl update and the new i1Pro 2.
The i1Pro 2 features new measuring technology that supports the M1 measuring standard. The future ISO/Fogra industry standards - which will probably be available from the end of this year - are based on the new M1 measuring standard. To be able to use the new measuring standards, users will have to replace their current measuring devices and software by new technology.
The i1Pro 2 devices purchased in the context of this campaign come with a two-year warranty, whereas the warranty period is normally only 12 months.
GMG ProofControl permits contract-quality verification of proofs in a matter of seconds, making color accuracy objectively measurable - even the slightest color deviation on a proof is instantly detected. The latest version supports the verification of spot color and GMG OpenColor profiles.
The aim of the campaign is to ensure that as many customers as possible work with devices and software whose technology reflects the state of the art. In addition to which, the new i1Pro 2 devices boost productivity compared to the first-generation devices, since they now operate at a higher measuring speed, thanks to the progress made in sensor development.
The latest version of GMG ProofControl supports not only the X-Rite i1Pro 2, but also the i1iO automated scanning table.
