X-Rite announces i1PRO 3 Plus (Spectrophotometer)



There is a new i1PRO 3 spetrophotometer coming out at the end of July 2019 from X-Rite.

New i1Pro 3 Plus delivers production calibration and color profiling capabilities for the widest range of industrial print applications, including wide- and grand-format, digital textiles, ceramics, and backlit film printing.

Full release announcement: https://www.xrite.com/about-us/news-...t-and-textiles

Currently, the improvements related to Emissive mode measurements (display calibration measurements) according to the posted announcement are very limited (only extended luminance range up to 5000 nits announced), once there will be more info I will update this thread.

There more updates related to Reflectance mode (measure papers/tiles), we are not interested in display calibration world.

In Reflectance mode, i1PRO's are using their internal tungsten lamp to illuminate the object (the color on printed paper...since you using the meter in contact mode to the paper, if the lamp will not light up, it will be like taking a dark reading), so after the llumination (which i1PRO's has certification since they used about 25 colored ceramic tiles to test/pass the certification) the reflected light will be analyzed by the i1PRO. When you are measuring a display; since the display has it's own illumination; the meter is working in Emissive mode and internal lamp is not used.

I don't know how much, but based on the announcement low light readings will be more accurate. I'm interested, but pricing will dictate my decision.

Low light improvement when you measure using the reflectance mode, not related with measurements for display calibration.

New i1io table, LOL...I bet i1io v2 table won't work with i1Pro3... these guys have no shame.
I hope some guy will make a 3D printed gadget for placing spectrophotometer like with i1io v1 and i1Pro2.


I wonder if that new LED illuminant will be full spectrum of just UV. (BTW, ArgyllCMS never used AFAIK UV led... and it seems that it does not needed for FWA).

I’m curious about its Photometric Range. If it’s still 10nm, then nothing has changed for display calibration I guess.

Are they actually going to certify the performance with emissive displays now?
