Roland DGA Corp. has expanded its line of inkjet printing accessories and supplies with i1Basic Pro 2 and i1Publish Pro 2, two color management solutions from X-Rite. Compatible with Roland’s award-winning line of wide-format printers and printer/cutters, these proven solutions bring together the industry’s most advanced color management hardware and software tools to ensure precision imaging across multiple devices and media.
“We are excited to offer these new advanced color management tools to our customers, which will help them achieve even better print quality across production environments both small and large,” said Julie Gederos, product manager for Roland DGA Corp. “The new solutions extend the color management capabilities of our own VersaWorks RIP software by enabling users to simplify their color management workflow.”
Designed for any application where color matching is critical, X-Rite’s i1Basic Pro 2 allows professionals to calibrate their monitors to display accurate digital color while linearizing their Roland printers for consistent output. This solution includes X-Rite’s new i1Pro 2 spectrophotometer, Pantone Color Manager software and the all-new, more robust i1 accessories package, including an ambient light measurement head, monitor holder, scanning ruler, backup board and spot color positioning target.
For a complete color management solution from design to finished print, users can upgrade to i1Publish Pro 2. This expanded solution includes the i1Basic Pro 2 package, as well as i1Profiler software, which allows users to develop their own custom media profiles based on the Roland printers in their production environment. As an added bonus, ColorChecker is included for users interested in camera calibration.
Priced at $1,199 and $2,098 respectively, i1Basic Pro 2 and i1Publish Pro 2 are available immediately from authorized Roland dealers and online at the Roland DGA Store. Other new Roland accessories for inkjet customers include a new line of anti-static kits from TAKK for users of any Roland 54-, 64- or 74-inch printer or printer/cutter. Additionally, a new Benes dryer line is now available for customers who purchase a VersaCAMM VS inkjet printer/cutter with a double white ink configuration.
