by Brenda K. Hipsher – November 4th, 2011
Announced last week during Photo Plus Expo, Eizo Nanao Technologies Inc. (EIZO) offers ColorEdge calibration monitor support via its proprietary ColorNavigator v6.0.1 software for X-Rite’s innovative i1Display Pro colorimeter product. Under a special license agreement, Eizo now offers unparalleled color measurement technology to a broad range of users including photography, pre-press, graphic design, post production, and broadcasting professionals.
“Color accuracy is the foundation upon which all serious professionals rely,” said Tom Gadbois, Eizo Nanao’s Color Graphics Specialist. “To that end, Eizo is delighted to now provide access for our customers to X-Rite’s i1Display Pro color management technology in combination with our ColorNavigator software.”
“The i1Display Pro has set new color calibration standards for photographers as well as graphics professionals and anyone passionate about color accuracy,” said Thomas Kunz, X-Rite’s Market Manager, Imaging. “X-Rite is honored that a major manufacturer like Eizo, and others yet to be announced, have chosen to license X-Rite’s display measurement technology because they respect the integrity of the i1Display Pro hardware to calibrate consistently, accurately and repeatedly.”
This licensing program also allows Eizo to better serve their customers’ needs by offering a software-only solution which provides an ideal solution for current owners of the X-Rite i1Display Pro. The EIZO-developed ColorNavigator software makes calibration simple and produces predictable color results. ColorNavigator works with a wide range of measurement devices to directly utilize the Look-Up Table of ColorEdge monitors for accurate and reliable calibration in minutes.

The new i1Display Pro also incorporates the next generation display and projector profiling software with features like Ambient Light Smart Control that measures and compensates for ambient lighting conditions (for color accuracy regardless of the viewing conditions) and FlareCorrect(TM) for the measurement of display surface flare which automatically compensates for on-screen glare. The Intelligent Iterative Profiling technology of these solutions enables users to attain the highest quality color results on all modern display technologies including new LED backlight and wide gamut displays. X-Rite’s Automatic Display Control (ADC) automatically adjusts the user’s display hardware, further simplifying the process while attaining high quality results.
