X-Rite has announced the i1Photo Pro 3 Plus, a new spectral colour measurement solution designed for professional photographers.
In particular, the new i1Photo Pro 3 Plus is aimed at photographers who print on challenging textured and glossy photo media and need more accurate colours in their RGB print workflow.
X-Rite’s i1Photo Pro 3 Plus combines the i1Pro 3 Plus spectrophotometer and i1 Profiler software and employs a larger 8mm aperture that allows it to support more materials and substrates used in digital printing.
Polarization Filter (measurement condition M3) that reduces specular highlights and shadows to provide “better blacks” and richer colors on rough surfaces and glossy medias, like canvas prints and fine art photo papers.
High Brightness Measurement enhances up to 5K NITs for ultra-bright displays.
Simultaneously measure M0, M1 and M2 in a single pass to account for optical brighteners so photographers can quickly predict how colors printed on optically brightened substrates will look under different lighting conditions.
The new LED illuminant improves device reliability. The i1Pro3 Plus allows for four measurement conditions (ISO 13655 M0; M1: D50; M2: UV Excluded, M3Polarized).
Transmission scanning support for backlit materials and a longer scanning ruler to support wider charts.
i1Photo Pro 3 Plus calibrates and profiles multiple displays, projectors, scanners, RGB printers and cameras with the included camera profiling software and ColorChecker Classic Mini target.
i1Photo Pro 3 Plus delivers all the features and functions found in i1Photo Pro 2 and more.

In addition, the new i1iO Automated Scanning Table supports the i1Pro 3 Plus hardware. This hands-free test chart reader offers automated color profiling on a variety of substrates with reduced risk of color measurement errors. It is ideal for color perfectionists who want to speed up and automate the measurement process and eliminate manual strip reading. The new i1iO table can be used with a variety of materials including canvas, textiles, ceramics, corrugated, etc. and supports materials up to 33mm thick, with the optional z-axis spacer. It also supports transparencies and backlit materials. The new i1iO 3rd generation table will be available from early October 2019.
