X-Rite & Pantone Announce NetProfiler Update
The device optimization software is now available as a cloud-based online platform
X-Rite Incorporated and Pantone LLC announce the latest release of NetProfiler device optimization software.
The cloud-based platform can now easily be accessed through a web browser to validate and correct instrument measurement performance, improving color consistency between devices and across the print and packaging supply chain. The new online function currently supports the eXact family of devices.
“Many brands and print customers have tight color tolerances leaving little room for error in the print workflow,” says Jon-Michael McCartney, director of print and packaging for X-Rite. “If measurement devices are not operating at factory performance, small errors can add up and put you out of tolerance. NetProfiler is unique in the industry as it helps printers and converters verify and optimize measurement accuracy for all their devices monthly to stay within tolerance. This is a critical part of an effective digital workflow that assures accurate spectral data is shared across InkFormulation and ColorCert quality assurance software.”
NetProfiler online is now available. Printers and converters can upgrade to NetProfiler online at no additional cost. Additional support for both the Ci6x series and Ci7000 series of sphere spectrophotometers will be added later in 2023.
