Best Measurement Value for the Money is Even Better!

The i1 Pro has been the most successful spectrophotometer in history with an estimated 250,000 units sold worldwide since it's introduction.  X-rite recently redesigned the i1, and began shipping the new i1 Pro 2. Heavier, and better designed it a more serious device. The device now contains a sensor to track speed when scanning.

The biggest change however is the ability to read three illuminant conditions including both UV Cut and UV included with a single instrument. Even more important in the future will be the ability of the i1 Pro 2 to read M1 measurements.
