Color Management Tools - Solutions for Professional Color Management

ColorGATE distributes color measuring devices and accessories for professional color management purposes to create color profiles for digital imaging, prepress and digital printing. List of spectrophotometers supported by ColorGATE.

 The portfolio contains solutions of the leading manufacturer X-Rite whose products perfectly harmonize with ColorGATE RIP Software solutions, as well as the ColorGATE Rapid Spectro Cube (RSC). 

  • ColorGATE
  • Extremely fast color measurement and profiling system for almost every industrial digital printing application.

    The Rapid Spectro Cube (RSC) is an all-in-one Color Management solution for the creation of ICC- profiles especially in industrial digital printing applications. It contains an ultrafast color measurement system and software for ICC- profiling.

    More information about the Rapid Spectro Cube (RSC) are available here.

  • X-Rite
  • X-Rite
    X-Rite is the global leader in color science and technology. The company develops, manufactures, markets and supports innovative color solutions through measurement systems, software, color standards and services.

    i1Pro 2
    Beside various professional X-Rite solutions such as i1Photo Pro 2 and i1Publish Pro 2 especially spectrophotometer i1Basic Pro 2 is available in an exclusive ColorGATE edition. With the new i1Pro 2 solutions X-Rite sets standards in color calibration and color profiling. i1Pro 2 solutions are the completely redesigned i1Pro solutions.They are characterized by an improved economy, efficiency and accuracy. A precise and accurate color measurement as well as a precise calibrated and profiled devices and systems are essential to the creative workflow. Display on monitors, projectors, in proofs or online must have the same appearance of the real image file. Otherwise, customers will not be satisfied with the results.

    Advantages of  the i1Basic Pro 2 compared to the i1Basic Pro:

    • The i1Basic Pro2 provides the measurement option for three standardized measurement conditions (M0, M1 and M2). Inaccuracies through optical brighteners in the paper will be automatically counterbalanced.  Scans can be done with one single hand-held device meeting current and upcoming ISO standards for imaging workflows (M1).
    • Enables the scanning of critical substrates or low resolution prints through the enhanced positioning detection sensor. The minimal patch size for scanning is now 7 mm for faster measurements and the reduction of consumables.
    • Support of bi-directional scanning with the i1Basic Pro 2 and ColorGATE RIP Software for noticeable shorter measurement processes.
    • i1Basic Pro 2 can automatically run a self-diagnose and correct small variations to ensure reliable measurement results. On top of that, it identifies any recalibration needs.
    • The upkeep and cleaning possibilities of the i1Basic Pro 2 are more advanced compared to the i1Basic Pro. The optics are secured by a new protection glass which is removable which makes the cleaning process more easy. The white calibration tile is protected by an additional cover to minimize dust and dirt interference.

    Automate your color workflow and extend the value of your i1Pro. The i1iO is a robotic, automatic chart reading system that is designed to work with all i1Pro devices, whether an original or second generation spectrophotometer. It’s ideal for photographers, designers, and printers who want to speed up and automate the measurement process and eliminate manual strip reading.

    Our portfolio includes a wide range of accessories as well as their range of spectrophotometers in exclusive ColorGATE editions  which include a device driver for ColorGATE Rip-Software.

    The new development ColorGATE Measure Mount allows the color measurement of cylindrical container and hollow-ware with the help of X-Rite i1 Pro2. The Measure Mount is a device for the use of the i1 Pro2 hand-held measuring device from X-Rite for the color measurement of cylindrical shaped and hollow bodies such as cans, bottles, tubes and glasses. The manually adjustable device can be adapted to circular bodies with diameters from 2cm to 20cm in just a few steps. As a result, the measuring device is optimally positioned above the shaped body to be measured. With ColorGATE's profiler modules, available for all RIP software solutions from ColorGATE, individual target geometries can be specified for the color characterization of cylindrical objects. The target generator makes it possible to define the number, size and arrangement of the measuring fields. If necessary, multipage targets can also be distributed to several objects. The subsequently printed measuring field targets can be fitted in the Measure Mount with any X-Rite i1 Pro2 measuring device from the ColorGATE Profiler software in scan or patch mode and then processed to ICC profiles. With the Mount, ColorGATE finally offers an apparatus for the comfortable and fast color control of round objects, also for offline quality control.
