Revolutionizing the measurement, management and communication of color

X-Rite Incorporated, a global leader in color science and technology, and its subsidiary Pantone LLC, today announced that it will be participating in the Flexographic Technical Association (FTA) Fall Conference scheduled for Oct. 20-22 at the Doubletree in Minneapolis.

“We are very excited to be sharing next-generation solutions with the FTA community at this important event,” said Shoshana Burgett, Marketing Communication Director of X-Rite. “By ensuring that color is right the first time, right all the time, businesses benefit from reduced makeready times and waste, increased productivity, greater process control and faster time to market. We are looking forward to speaking with visitors during the event.”

The solutions to be showcased at the events include:

  • PantoneLIVE, to ensure accurate specification of spectral values stored in an open cloud-based database accessible to authorized stakeholders. Spectral values are adjusted to ensure accurate color production for each substrate, ink and printing technology used.
  • X-Rite eXact spectrophotometer with Scan Option, to measure color in premedia and the pressroom. eXact enables companies to truly understand, control, manage and communicate color across the entire color network to avoid unwanted reprint and rework.
  • ColorCert: X-Rite Edition closes the loop for exceptional color management, from customer file all the way through production. ColorCert delivers statistical process control for defining, monitoring and communicating production quality around the globe.

“While each of these solutions stands on its own and adds value to a flexographic workflow, combined they are a force multiplier,” Burgett adds. “In today’s highly competitive and demanding marketplace, innovation in color measurement, management and communication will go a long way toward increasing profitability throughout the entire supply chain.”
