Measuring the Colour Network from Ink Kitchen to Pressroom

X-Rite eXact Standard is a next generation handheld colour measurement solution that takes into account the new business needs and dynamics of a global supply chain. X-Rite eXact enables printers and packaging converters to truly understand, control and manage colour across the entire colour network, ensuring the utmost in colour accuracy.

The X-Rite eXact Standard is a spectrophotometer that ensures accurate printing of both CMYK and Spot Colours, as well as leveraging industry standard for process control.

Completely Customisable - The eXact can be set up to position key elements in the order most likely to be needed by individual users, including press operators and operations managers, giving users instant access to the tools they need, often in a single click, via a colour GUI. This improves operator productivity, removes opportunity for human error, and results in increased color accuracy.

BestMatch - With eXact’s BestMatch function, press operators can more easily keep ink colours on target even before colour shifts are visible. From a single click, operators can see density information as well as recommendations for adjustment of ink to achieve the best match throughout the press run. Integration of multiple Pantone libraries offers an easy way to accurately measure spot colours.

Fast and easy - Use eXact to quickly measure and understand colour and status relative to standards, allowing operators to manage and understand expectations at press, and know what is, and what is not achievable. With a integrated calibration tile built in, operators can ensure optimum measurement accuracy at all time.

Integrated Across the Color Network - Provides necessary tools to aid in achieving colour. When used with NetProfiler 3, eXact can manage and monitor color performance on an enterprise level.

Multiple printing technologies - Combined with X-Rite’s Color iQC Print, InkFormulation and PantoneLIVE, eXact enables the validation and management of specified colour across a variety of printing technologies and substrates.
