Color profile management
The X-Rite ColorMunki Photo Color Management Solution provides display and RGB/CMYK printer profiling in an easy-to-use, all-in-one integrated solution with a streamlined interface. Key features include:
Monitor Profiling. The ColorMunki spectrophotometer is a portable all-in-one device that provides Monitor Printer Profiling; it even has a built-in white calibration tile for self-calibration. You’ll get precise monitor calibration using a basic mode with preconfigured settings or an advanced mode with settings for white point, ambient compensation, and pre-calibration. It also has the ability to capture the ambient light in a room or a light box for an impressive level of color calibration.
Printer Profiling. Its RGB and CMYK printer-profiling technology provides complete color control along with optimized printer profiling, and has the ability to optimize specific colors, black and white shades, and flesh tones to ensure that the color you see is the color you get. You simply scan one test chart of fifty patches, and the ColorMunki calculates an interim profile and learns how your printer behaves for these colors. It then produces a second chart that perfects your profile once you scan it.
Camera Profiling. When paired with the X-Rite ColorChecker Passport Photo (separate rental item), you can download X-Rite’s free ColorChecker Camera Calibration software to create custom DNG profiles. You can then use a plug-in to import these profiles to photo-editing software like Adobe Lightroom.
Software Not Included. Due to copyright restrictions and the software disc being so out-of-date, we don’t include it with this rental. Instead, you can download the latest version of the software from the Resources section on the right-hand side of this page.
