The spectrophotometer is joined by new i1Studio software, the ColorTRUE Mobile App for calibrating iOS devices, and the ColorChecker Calibration for Cameras, a standard 24-patch target.
The i1Studio offers dedicated profiling for the aforementioned devices, as well as Black & White prints. Module features include ambient light measurement, Flare Correct, adaptive profiling technology, support for several video standards including NTSC and PAL, multiple monitor profiling, and extended user controls over luminance, gamma, contrast ratio, and white point.
The device's related software is based on the platform X-Rite used for its 1Profiler software, promising a "perfect balance" between controls and automation alongside what X-Rite describes as a "streamlined user experience." ColorMunki Photo & Design customers are offered a complimentary i1Studio software update, as well.
