X-Rite i1Display Pro Display Calibrator Review


If you're a graphic designer, the most capable monitor in the world can be deemed meaningless if it doesn't accurately represent the colors as they'll be seen on the medium you're designing for.  You can pay a premium for monitors that are pre-calibrated, but if you (or an entire office) is trying to keep costs down, and who isn't, a display calibrator can allow you to ensure greater color consistency across all of your workstations even with a mix of monitors.  X-Rite's i1Display Pro comes bundled with their i1Profiler allowing novices and pros alike to quickly calibrate and evaluate the displays they count on to get it right the first time.



Perfectly. Amazing.

The X-Rite i1Display Pro is the ultimate solution for Creative Perfectionists who demand speed, options and flexibility to attain color accuracy.

Color Perfectionists know that a calibrated and profiled display is a critical element in an efficient digital workflow. Nobody wants to spend hours at their monitor perfecting images or video only to find that their display wasn’t accurately representing their digital files. What you see on your monitor (or projector) has to match your digital file or you will never be happy with the result, no matter how much time you devote to perfecting it.

In our world, perfection is not too much to ask for. X-Rite i1Display Pro delivers.
