Scan measuring with an X-Rite i1

The i1 needs a Color bar where all adjacent patches have a color difference of at least 25 delta-E.

To scan the above Color bar, follow the instructions below:

If you need to scan a multi-row bar repeat this until all bars are done.

Using an X-Rite i1 Pro2 to measure M1/M2 conditions

From MeasureColor 18.1 and later it is possible to measure M0, M1 and M2 conditions with the X-Rite i1 Pro2.

The X-Rite i1 Pro2 enables M1 and M2 measurements by taking two measurements for every sample and calculate the correct values. The reason behind this is the special light source configuration of the i1.

Scanning a full Color bar in M1 or M2 with the i1 Pro2

  • The zebra striped ruler is mandatory, place it below the Color bar before scanning
  • Press and hold the button on the i1 Pro2 and wait for the beep
  • After the beep measure the color bar from left to right.
  • Release the button
  • Wait for two short beeps to sound
  • Press and hold the button on the i1 Pro2 and measure from right to left

Scanning a multi-row Color bar

Scanning a multi-row basically works the same as scanning 3 single Color bars. Just scan every row from left to right, and from right to left as explained above.
