X-Rite Introduces PerfectPalette(TM) for Package and Commercial Printers; Easy-to-Use Software Application Builds Custom Pantone and Spot Color Libraries in Seconds.

GRANDVILLE, Mich. -- X-Rite (NASDAQ:XRIT) today introduced PerfectPalette, a new software application designed to provide packaging and commercial printers a quick and easy way to create custom color palettes from PANTONE libraries or spot measurement color values. Developed in partnership with Enovation Graphic Systems (A Fujifilm Company) to meet the requirements for creating spot color libraries for the Fujifilm FinalProof GxT digital halftone proofer, PerfectPalette tackles the challenge of getting the right spot color simulation the first time, avoiding multiple adjustments to make spot colors match the target from prepress to the pressroom.

"PerfectPalette was developed from scratch and customized to meet and exceed customer requirements and the needs of the printing marketplace," said Marc Levine, Product Manager for X-Rite's Graphic Arts Premedia Business. "Packaging and commercial printers will appreciate the speed, accuracy, and ease of creating and customizing multiple color libraries from PANTONE or spot color values. The end result is a precise color match the first time, minimizing ink usage and paper waste."

In the pressroom, PerfectPalette will allow companies with 6 and 7 color presses to produce work that simulates spot colors that would otherwise require additional units or multiple press runs. Designers will now be able to specify more spot colors with greater accuracy and not be limited by standard spot-color conversion tools. PerfectPalette enables the optimized reproduction of corporate colors, serving the client's color critical needs without having to pay for special inks.

"Perfect Palette provides our Fujifilm FinalProof GxT customers a fast and accurate solution for creating customized spot color libraries for any combination of color donors or final substrates," said Eric L. Neumann, Enovation's Product Manager, Color Management & Proofing. "FinalProof GxT enables us to expand the gamut by using up to 12 color donors, and when combined with X-Rite PerfectPalette, users can now take full advantage of the extended gamut to get the best possible color matches to special spot colors using 5-8 color libraries. This ability to match special colors is especially critical in the packaging markets."

Other key benefits of PerfectPalette:

--Supports various output formats including Adobe(R) Color Swatch format and the native FinalProof GXT format.

--Advanced palette engine optimizes custom color palettes, yielding more precise matching without sacrificing processing time.

--Custom co-efficients for Delta E 94 and Delta E CMC to allow for the highest level of accuracy and control in building custom color palettes

--Custom libraries allow users to add corporate colors to pantone libraries, or build color references manually.
