Pantone Launches Color Management Package
ColorMunki tools for creating and calibrating new colors.
Color systems provider Pantone, along with parent company X-Rite, has developed a new family of products—called ColorMunki—the company says help designers better develop and calibrate colors.
The ColorMunki portfolio of includes three applications: design, create and photo. ColorMunki Design allows designers to select, specify and store color palettes in a calibrated environment, providing precise color viewing and reproductions, the companies say. Palettes then can be imported into a number of design applications, including Adobe Photoshop, InDesign and Quark.
ColorMunki Create offers what Pantone and X-Rite call a simplified approach to on-screen color control and “spectral color selection.” The photo application, ColorMunki Photo, calibrates displays, projectors and printers, measures ambient light and captures spot colors.
According to Iris Mangelschots, X-Rite senior vice president of global sales and marketing, the ColorMunki portfolio offers “solutions for distinct segments of the creative community facilitating an unprecedented digital workflow that seamlessly incorporates color.”
The ColorMunki applications will be launched June and will be available at colormunki.com.
Last fall, Pantone quietly launched its new Goe Color Specification System including more than 2,000 new Pantone colors—the company’s first change to its Pantone Matching System since it was released 45 years ago.
