Colour management continues to be demystified and the price of the technology continues to fall.”

ColorVision PrintFix PRO
The all-new ColorVision PrintFix PRO will be on show in the UK for the first time at Focus On Imaging. Based around the DataColor Spectrocolorimeter 1005, PrintFix PRO will create accurate and consistent profiles across multiple printers, inks, and papers. PrintFix PRO is available for just £349/€499 ex VAT, representing fantastic value for money and bringing spectro-based printer profiling to an affordable price for the first time.

In the past two years ColorVision have generated a market-leading position with the Spyder2. By delivering an easy to use, accurate and sensibly priced solution ColorVision expect the PrintFix PRO to become the Spyder2 of printer calibration.

GretagMacbeth Eye-One iO
The new Eye-One iO is an automated table designed for the fast and accurate reading of colour patches. Eye-One iO provides a new level of automation for test chart reading, providing chart measurement in under three minutes. All existing users of Eye-One devices will be able to take advantage of the Eye-One iO.

Eye-One iO is an ideal upgrade for anyone who is regularly reading patches and creating output profiles, or for anyone who demands greater accuracy through reading an increased number of patches.

Bring your Eye-One Photo to stand E40 at Focus On Imaging and we will put your device into the Eye-one iO. Sit back and watch your own Eye-One Photo fly!!

X-Rite Pulse ColorElite
A year on from its UK debut, the X-Rite Pulse has transformed the market for easy-to-use spectrophotometers. At Focus On Imaging 2005 visitors had their first chance to see the Pulse in action. A year on, and people continue to be attracted to its wizard based interface, fast and accurate patch reading and outstanding value proposition.

In 2005 Colour Confidence demonstrated the capabilities of the groundbreaking Eizo ColorEdge CG220, the first monitor ever to show the Adobe RGB colour space.

A selection of these monitors will be displayed at the show.
