Fons Put works as senior innovation consultant for VIGC, the Flemish Innovation Center for Graphic Communication. His contribution refers to the new colour measuring equipment (eXact from X-Rite) that WAN-IFRA has chosen for the evaluations for the International Newspaper Color Quality Club 2014–2016 contest.

  • The old i1PRO1 (revision AB) gives the same response as the newer i1PRO1 (revision D).

If you like to see the figures, take a look at the spreadsheet:…
