ColorBlind 5 Coming This Month

New version of ICC suite gets modularized By Dave Nagel
Imaging Technologies is releasing ColorBlind 5.0, the latest version of its color profiling suite. The new version of ColorBlind will be demonstrated at the International Printing and Visual Communications (IPEX) show at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, England April 9 through 17.

ColorBlind 5.0 offers an improved user interface that the company says is designed to be more intuitive. It includes online help screens and easier access to ColorBlind tools. The functions of ColorBlind 5.0 are modularized and accessible as Photoshop plugins.

ColorBlind 5.0 includes a series of modules that provide support for scanners, digital cameras, CRT and flat panel displays, multi-channel printers and a variety of measuring instruments. The first modules planned for release over the next month will be ColorBlind v5 Scan, ColorBlind v5 Print, and ColorBlind v5 View. According to Imaging Technologies, the first releases will have limited measuring instrument support. Additional modules planned for later this year include ColorBlind v5 Edit, ColorBlind v5 Statistics, ColorBlind v5 Spot and ColorBlind v5 Dcam.

ColorBlind 5.0 products will be available as individual modules and as "suites" or combinations of modules such as MatchBox and ColorBlind Professional. ColorBlind Professional is professional-level ICC profiling software for Macintosh and Windows systems. The Professional version is bundled with ColorBlind ProveIt! and ColorBlind Edit. Matchbox is an all in one ICC-compatible color matching system for Macintosh and Windows. Matchbox includes software for creating ICC profiles of any color device, a colorimeter for creating printer profiles, profile editing and image soft proofing with ColorBlind Edit, Pantone and spot color calibration with ColorBlind Spot. Pricing varies depending on configuration. For more information, visit
