The cloud-based platform can now easily be accessed through a web browser to validate and correct instrument measurement performance, improving color consistency between devices and across the print and packaging supply chain.

X-Rite Incorporated and Pantone, global leaders in color science and technology, have announced the latest release of the NetProfiler device optimization software. The cloud-based platform can now easily be accessed through a web browser to validate and correct instrument measurement performance, improving color consistency between devices and across the print and packaging supply chain. The new online function currently supports the eXact family of devices, including the new eXact 2, the company said.

“Many brands and print customers have tight color tolerances leaving little room for error in the print workflow,” said Jon-Michael McCartney, director Print and Packaging, X-Rite. “If measurement devices are not operating at factory performance, small errors can add up and put you out of tolerance. NetProfiler is unique in the industry as it helps printers and converters verify and optimize measurement accuracy for all their devices monthly to stay within tolerance. This is a critical part of an effective digital workflow that assures accurate spectral data is shared across InkFormulation and ColorCer quality assurance software.”

Over time, all measurement instruments drift due to extended use, wear, and environmental conditions. Using NetProfiler monthly between annual certifications, operators can easily identify instruments needing service and reduce variation between devices before it impacts the print workflow and creates color errors. NetProfiler also standardizes color acceptance criteria and quality across global locations to ensure color consistency.

The new NetProfiler online platform uses a modern, secure, and reliable architecture. NetProfiler online offers complimentary access to X-Rite Link for all profiled devices. X-Rite Link enables printers to monitor and maintain a fleet of devices with visibility into the health and status of each X-Rite device with real-time insights from a single interactive dashboard. Additional support for both the Ci6x series and Ci7000 series of sphere spectrophotometers will be added later in 2023.

NetProfiler online is now available. Printers and converters can upgrade to NetProfiler online at no additional cost.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
