Xrite Press Release
X-Rite Extends Cashback Offer on ColorChecker Passport with ColorMunki Display or i1Display Pro
Offer extended for three further months – now ends 30 September 2014
Easy to claim cashback at www.xritecashback.com
Birmingham, UK, 9 July 2014 - X-Rite Photo Europe, the specialist photo market distributor for X-Rite’s range of products, has announced the extension of their popular cashback offer until 30 September 2014. The offer of £30 cashback on every X-Rite ColorChecker Passport purchased at the same time as either X-Rite ColorMunki Display or X-Rite i1Display Pro has proved to be extremely popular and was due to finish at the end of June. With a retail price of £83 the ColorChecker Passport can effectively be purchased for just £53.
Geoffrey Clements, Managing Director at X-Rite Photo Europe commented: "The cashback offer has been well received since we launched it early March and we wanted to give more photographers the opportunity to see the benefits of controlling both the ‘capture’ and ‘edit’ phases of their workflow at a reduced price. The ColorChecker Passport is imperative during image capture to ensure consistency; for example, the challenge of ensuring that the bride’s wedding dress is the same colour under different lighting conditions during her wedding day. Where the latest calibrators from X-Rite go on to ensure that images viewed on a monitor are profiled for maximum colour accuracy as well as consistency.”
ColorMunki Display and i1Display Pro continue X-Rite’s long established market leading position in monitor calibration for photographers. Using new and improved filtering and optical systems, both products provide unrivalled accuracy when measuring a screen.
X-Rite ColorMunki Display offers a quick and easy way for both amateur and professional photographers to calibrate and profile displays. It features X-Rite’s most technologically advanced colorimeter bundled with new display and projector profiling software to ensure unrivalled colour accuracy and consistency for colour perfectionists.
X-Rite i1Display Pro is the ultimate solution for demanding professionals who require speed, options and flexibility to ensure colour accuracy on screen. It incorporates next-generation display and projector profiling software technologies that makes the match between display and printer more perfect and delivers full creative control over images.
The X-Rite ColorChecker Passport enables photographers to profile the ‘capture’ element of their photography, by adjusting images based on the ambient lighting conditions. ColorChecker Passport combines the industry standard Munsell 24 patch ColorChecker with an adjustment target and the intuitive ColorChecker Passport software all in a small and easy to transport case.
