New X-Rite i1Profiler software available now
« on: March 28, 2011, 04:20:41 PM »

Hello,

The new i1Profiler software is available for download now, go to http://www.xrite.com/product_overview.aspx?ID=1397&Action=support&SoftwareID=1064

Without the proper license, profiling options are limited of course.

Regards,
Yann

Needless to say.

I love these websites that think their too cool to confront people with anything like money on the first click.

The software IS free.

The dongle that makes it function, not so much.

And a dongle no less - more crap to stick into my computer every time I want to use it. Good grief. And why don't they jut state the need for the dongle and the price on the product page? It's beneath their dignity even though they'll gladly take the money at some point anyhow? Ridiculous.

My first purchase from these guys. Putting together a package for icc profiling for our print studio.
With the i1 profiler will we need the profilemaker platinum 5 ? Have not seen any bundle packages with the new i1 profiler. Have had a call into X rite but no response.

Well, better than nasty activation codes and such that tie the software to a particular machine....some of us need the flexibility of moving a piece of software to whatever machine we need to use it....dongles are welcome in that case. I used to HATE dongles...until machine-specific protection schemes came along!  ;)

To clarify the dongle issue:

X-Rite is not taking away or overwriting any existing i1Pro i1Match, ProfileMakerv5 or Monaco Profiler dongles. Users get to continue using their legacy solutions if desired. However, X-Rite will probably verify that the original dongle is legitimate, and eligible for upgrade.

X-Rite will upgrade an i1Pro or ProfileMaker dongle through the i1Profiler software interface. Users will purchase either Upgrade A or Upgrade B as applicable, and when they receive the upgrade, the box will include an activation code . X-Rite will not use the existing upgrade paths in i1Diagnostics or License Tool.

MonacoPROFILER users will have to call an X-Rite Service Center, where X-Rite will verify that their existing dongle is valid. They will then receive their new i1Publish dongle by mail within 5 business days.

It seems that the licence can also be saved in i1pro memory as well - just like i1match modules.

Only if you decide you want to build scanner or digital camera ICC profiles. i1P doesn’t generate em.

Or you want to use some of the functionality in PMP that isn’t in i1P. Other than that, no.

The Adobe scheme has worked pretty well for me (activate and dis-activate) unless you don’t have net access and even then, I was able to get it to work with a phone call.

Thank You Andrew.
Now with the money I saved I can get the i1iSis.

Keep in mind, that this FIRST iteration of i1Profiler is called 'Publish'. So, i1Profiler Publish, and it is positioned as heir replacement to the main profiling components from ProfileMaker and Monaco Profiler. However, as Andrew pointed out, Publish is a bit neutered (right now) compared to the traditional 'Platinum' suites. It includes Monitor calibration and for Output it includes RGB, CMYK, and CMYK+4. But no Editor, ColorPicker, MeasureTool, ColorPort, Scanner, Digital Camera. So, keep your old package for these things.

Also, there are two other packages called Photo and Basic. Add an i1Pro to any of these packages and they are called: i1Publish Pro, i1Photo Pro, i1Basic Pro.

Hope that helps.

Ouch! No dog likes the idea of being neutered (its often necessary).

There are a slew or reasons why existing users of either or both PROFILER and PMP will want to continue to use some parts of these packages. More details in the near future.

Dongle? Really, those are still around?

Once again pirates get the easy-to-use version while paying customers have to deal with the hassle of copy-"protection."

It's a heap of confusion. Too bad these guys have a monopoly on this business.

And, just remember if you move to OS 10.7 none of these old PPC applications like Profilemaker Pro or MonacoProfiler are going to run.

True, unless Apple decides to leave Rosetta as part of the OS.
