X-Rite has launched an X-Rite branded edition of ColorCert software, having become the exclusive distributor in December of last year. This integrates the X-Rite eXact spectrophotometer and the cloud-based colour service PantoneLIVE with the ColorCert software. In theory this allows for process control for monitoring and managing colour across a large and diverse supply chain, greatly simplifying colour communication all the way from the artwork phase of projects through separation, ink room and pressroom.
ColorCert has been developed by Nelissen Consulting of Germany. “The fact that X-Rite has chosen ColorCert as its main offering for statistical process control of packaging colors speaks for the quality of the solution” said Christian Nelissen, founder and owner of Nelissen Consulting. “I’m convinced that by combining ColorCert with X-Rite’s industry-leading solutions and leveraging the X-Rite and Esko global network, we will create a new de-facto standard for the communication and control of color in the packaging industry.”
