X-Rite’s redesigned i1Pro 2 spectrophotometer has received the prestigious 2013 iF Product Design Award. This is the second prestigious international award the product has received, after winning the international red dot design award in 2012.

For 60 years, the iF product design award has been an internationally highly recognised label for award-winning design and the iF brand has become a symbol for outstanding achievements in design. X-Rite’s i1Pro 2 spectrophotometer was selected for this highly sought-after award among 3011 other product design entries from around the world.
The iF jury considered criteria such as design quality, finish, choice of materials, degree of innovation, environmental impact, functionality, ergonomics, visualization of intended use, safety, brand value and branding and aspects of universal design when selecting the winning products.
This award-winning device can be found in X-Rite’s i1Basic Pro 2, i1Photo Pro 2, and i1Publish Pro 2 products, all featuring groundbreaking new technology and applications. The i1Pro 2 second-generation spectrophotometer is the most accurate and forward thinking device available today accommodating three measurement modes in one single device. These modes include the most commonly used M0 (Standard Illuminant A), the emerging M1 (illuminant D50) and M2 (known as UV-cut). 
X-Rite is honoured to be selected for this coveted iF product design award for our thoughtfully redesigned i1Pro 2 spectrophotometer, said Frank Maeder, X-Rite Product Manager, i1 Solutions. Recognised for its high quality design, the i1Pro 2 device helps deliver to colour professionals around the world the workflow tools they need that incorporate ever important emerging colour standards.
Built upon the success of X-Rite’s i1Pro spectrophotometer, the newly enhanced device has been redesigned to provide an even higher level of accuracy, versatility, ergonomics, functionality and value. Combined with the recently released i1Profiler software v1.4, which accommodates all levels of proficiency and expertise, the new i1Pro 2 portfolio of four different products is specifically targeted to meet the unique needs of photo, prepress, digital print and publishing professionals.
