X-Rite Incorporated and its subsidiary Pantone have extended the eXact portfolio of handheld spectrophotometers to include a spot color tone value (SCTV) feature that supports the latest ISO 20654 standard.
The eXact SCTV configuration has been developed to allow commercial and package printers to verify tone value for spot colors that ‘correlate well’ with visual appearance. With this latest firmware update to the eXact family, X-Rite said printers will be able to more easily verify both spot and process colors that brands specify using the new standard.
Ray Cheydleur, printing and imaging product portfolio manager at X-Rite, said: ‘X-Rite now provides SCTV support across our eXact family, IntelliTrax2 and ColorCert Suite 3.0 process control software, providing customers with the color management.”
