Monaco Systems, Inc., a leading developer of color technologies and software solutions, today announced a complete color management solution for graphics professionals, which includes MonacoPROOF color management software and X-Rite’s Digital Swatchbook spectrophotometer.

The powerful color matching technology of MonacoPROOF combined with the award-winning functionality of X-Rite’s Digital Swatchbook, provides graphics professionals with a comprehensive color management solution that ensures accurate and consistent color from all of their input, display and output devices. The complete package is available for $2299.

“Graphics professionals require hardware devices for exact color measurements and color management software to communicate and interpret this data to ensure color fidelity from all of their devices,” said Dan Johansen, Business Development Manager at Monaco Systems, Inc. “By providing a complete solution at an affordable price, users can quickly implement a color management system that consistently delivers the color they expect from design through print.”

The X-Rite Digital Swatchbook is an easy to use hand-held spectrophotometer. The device enables users to quickly and precisely measure color data including 31-point spectral information, colorimetric values and density data. The exact color information is immediately calculated and sent to MonacoPROOF.

Using collected color data, MonacoPROOF allows users to easily create profiles for all input, display and output devices, thereby consistently communicating accurate color from design through prepress to final output.
