A Note from X-Rite:

    After careful consideration, X-Rite has decided to discontinue the manufacture and sale of its i1Pro 2 family of spectrophotometers. This includes part numbers include: EO2BAS, EO2PHO, EO2PUB, EO2HW, EO2HWUV, EO2HWABL, EO2HWDISP, and EO2AST (i1iO2). The i1Pro 2 has been replaced by the new i1Pro 3 family. Last production for most models was Summer of 2020.

    We appreciate your business and hope to assist you in an easy transition to the new and higher performance i1Pro 3.


The i1Pro3 spectrophotometer is a new level of color accuracy for the i1Pro family, delivering increased ease of use and an expanded professional level feature set, including supporting the latest developments in industry measurement standards.

i1Profiler software offers an unprecedented level of flexibility to address the needs of digital imaging workflows. It features a number of unique color management capabilities, adding to users power and control in creating professional quality profiles. Users can chose between a basic, wizard-driven interface; or an advanced, user-driven interface to create high quality, precise, custom color profiles for monitors, projectors, printers, and presses (device support dependent upon product purchased). At the core of i1Profiler is X-Rites i1Prism engine, whose unique profiling technology lets users build printer profiles for up to 8-color workflows (RGB, CMYK and CMYK plus any 4). This reliable, intelligent iterative technology is extremely robust, allowing for further profile optimization based on any combination of images, spot colors or captured colors, resulting in the best possible image quality and color accuracy. Users can select from any of the included PANTONE color libraries, including the new PANTONE PLUS SERIES.

Users can further adapt their profiles to specific ambient light conditions, compensate for optical brighteners in their papers (with an i1iSis), and utilize simple yet advanced controls for black separation. i1Profiler lets users save and reuse assets or preferred settings with drag-and-drop functionality - meaning profile generation workflows can be created or shared with others quickly, easily, and efficiently. This exchange functionality also allows users to communicate palette information and other color data across the office or around the world using X-Rites Color Exchange Format (CxF) for the most comprehensive digital color data exchange.

The i1Profiler software allows you to move licenses from an i1Pro device (older one) to an i1PRO2 device (newer one). This is a one way trip, and will remove all the licenses from the i1Pro and move them to the i1PRO2.

To be clear, if you have an i1Pro plus own i1Profiler licenses, you can purchase an i1Basic PRO2 and use i1Profiler to migrate those licenses over to the i1Basic PRO2, converting it to an i1Publish PRO2.

Important Dongle and UPGRADE Notes:

X-Rite is not taking away or overwriting any existing i1Pro i1Match, PM5 or MP dongles. Users will be able to continue using their legacy solutions if desired. However, X-Rite will verify that the original dongle is legitimate, and eligible for upgrade.

X-Rite will upgrade an i1Pro built-in internal dongle or ProfileMaker external dongle through the i1Profiler software interface. Users will purchase either Upgrade A or Upgrade B as applicable, and when they receive the upgrade, the box will include an activation code . X-Rite will not use the existing upgrade paths in i1Diagnostics or License Tool.

MonacoPROFILER users receive a new i1Publish dongle in addition to their Monaco Profiler dongle.

The UPGRADE Code that arrives with all upgrades REQUIRES an internet connection. The code that is printed on the upgrade box is really only applicable for "auto activation" done via the internet. If you do not have an internet connection, you will need to acquire an entirely different code and then use the 'manual activation process'. For this manual code, you must contact X-Rite directly. Call the X-Rite number listed within i1Profiler and ask for the i1Profiler Support Team.

7-15-11 NOTE: i1Profiler Dongle/i1Pro Transfer Replacement Policy: If you have a PMv5 dongle or i1Pro you have recently upgraded to i1Profiler, and if that device is broken, damaged or does not work, X-Rite will now honor, evaluate and replace it. Coordinate with CHROMiX.

Installation & Authentication NOTE:

In i1Profiler Publish Pro (EOPUB), the spectro is utilized as the dongle. In the package you should receive the software, spectro, 2 color checkers and little white folded up pamphlet with an i1 logo on it. This pamphlet has a license key printed right on the front if it (14 characters). Once the software is installed, you'll need to connect your i1 device to a USB hub and ensure the software recognizes the unit (software will display instrument serial number). Once this verification has been completed, you should see a button called upgrade license or something to that effect. Once you press that button, a pop up box will appear. You will enter the 14 digit license key and also fill in any other applicable information. Once thats submitted, you should see green check marks all across the individual module icons displayed on your software.

i1Publish Upgrade includes

i1Profiler v1.x software for monitors, projectors, scanners and RGB/CMYK+ printers, ColorChecker Camera Calibration software, PANTONE Color Manager software, ColorChecker Classic target mini, ColorChecker Proof target and soft-sided storage case.
