Monaco Profiler has 3 RGB profiling targets, plus the option of linearization.
Two more than necessary <g>. It was the CMYK linearization that added even more unnecessary target options.
I personally found the 2 step profiling process with linearization useful. For years it allowed me to generate better profiles than my competitors who were stuck on the inferior ProfileMakerPro.
It WAS useful, it was the implementation that needed work. It still does in their current product(s)!
Well the Monaco Mindset of yesterday is quite different than the XRite mindset of today. Regardless of your feelings about the UI, all the technology under the hood allows us to generate the best profiles today hands down. And consolidating the linearization process into the profiling process in one step is a big improvement.
I've never had a beef with the underlying color technology. Thank dog X-rite has James Vogh there working on that code. My beef is with user friendliness and design which isn't anywhere as well done as their underlying color technology.
As for the best technology around, I'm not certain after playing around with the ColorLogic products. I still need to see output from some CMYK digital presses to know how it stacks up to i1P. But the RGB stuff (which ColorLogic tells me isn't their speciality) seems to stack up well against i1P with output to an Epson 3880.
