X-Rite eXact OpenExceptional functionality yet simple to use. Measuring the Color Network from Ink Kitchen to Pressroom.

Completely Customisable
eXact can be set up to position key elements in the order most likely to be needed by individual users, including press operators and operations managers, giving users instant access to the tools they need, often in a single click, via a color GUI. This improves operator productivity, removes opportunity for human error, and results in increased color accuracy.

With eXact’s BestMatch function, press operators can more easily keep ink colors on target even before color shifts are visible. From a single click, operators can see density information as well as recommendations for adjustment of ink to achieve the best match throughout the press run. Integration of multiple Pantone libraries offers an easy way to accurately measure spot colors.

Fast and Easy
Use eXact to quickly measure and understand color and status relative to standards, allowing operators to manage and understand expectations at press, and know what is—and what is not—achievable. With a integrated calibration tile built in, operators can ensure optimum measurement accuracy at all time.
