Pilot Marketing Group adds X-Rite eXact with Scan Option
X-Rite Incorporated, a global leader in colour science and technology, and its subsidiary Pantone LLC, today reported that Dave Hunter, one of five G7 Expert Trainers in the world and founder of Pilot Marketing Group, has added the X-Rite eXact™ spectrophotometer with Scan Option to his portfolio of product offerings. By including the eXact with Scan Option in the company’s unique closed-loop colour management methodology, Pilot’s clients realise an affordable way to incorporate ICC colour control and G7 performance into their production workflows
Hunter specialises in providing tools and training to printing companies that hold press operators directly accountable for printing to the numbers. He had been reselling the X-Rite eXact and was quite interested when X-Rite made the Scan Option available for this next-generation spectrophotometer.
“I am impressed with the accuracy of the eXact in scan mode,” Hunter says. “Quickly measuring the same target 50 times yielded extremely consistent measurements. eXact with Scan Option will play a significant role in my business – and that of my clients – in the coming years. It is part of an affordable solution that allows many more companies to implement a closed-loop approach to colour measurement.”
Incorporating eXact with Scan Option into Hunter’s unique closed-loop approach allows printers to validate that presses are hitting the G7 condition without the need for a separate press run. This saves significant time and resources without compromising performance.
“Pilot Marketing has done a great job of raising awareness about the importance of closed-loop colour measurement and management,” said Christian Benz, Product Manager, X-Rite. “We are pleased that he will be incorporating the eXact with Scan Option into his offerings, making them available to a broader audience.”
The X-Rite eXact spectrophotometer with Scan Option is a next generation handheld colour measurement solution that enables printers and packaging converters to truly understand, control, manage and communicate colour across the entire colour workflow, avoiding reprints and rework. It incorporates a number of unique features that set it apart in the colour measurement and management space.
