Features


ColorChecker Studio combines world-class hardware and software to deliver expert color results for photo and filmmaker pros.

ColorChecker Studio includes:

ColorChecker Studio Device:

The patented, all-in-one ColorChecker Studio spectrophotometer is the only device you need to profile your monitors, projectors, scanners, mobile devices and printers.

It’s compact and easy to carry in its own protective bag so you are never without the means to create an expertly calibrated and profiled workflow whether at home, in-studio or on the road.

ccStudio software powered by X-Rite provides an easy to navigate interface that delivers expertly calibrated and profiled monitors (including video presets), projectors, scanners and printers.

ColorChecker Camera Calibration Software and Mini ColorChecker Classic Target for Cameras: 

Utilizing the included industry standard 24 patch target, you’ll be able to create custom camera profiles (single or dual illuminant), set a custom white balance and have a neutral starting point no matter what light you are shooting in for a more streamlined editing process. The software includes both a desktop application and an Adobe® Lightroom® Plug-In.

Monitor Calibration and Profiling:

Once you take the guesswork and frustration out of making sure the color you see on your display is the color you expect from your printer, you’ll save time and money and gain full creative control over your images. ColorChecker Studio uses advanced technologies to perfect the match between your display and printer.

Intelligent Iterative Profiling:

An adaptive technology that produces optimized results for maximum color accuracy on each unique display every time you profile.

Ambient Light Measurement: automatically determines the optimum display luminance for comparing prints to your display, based on a measurement of the lighting conditions where prints will be viewed.

Video Standards Support: NTSC, PAL SECAM, Rec. 709, Rec. 2020 and DCI-P3

Extended User Controls: custom control of white point, luminance, contrast ratio and gamma. Also, measure other displays or light sources and use as targets.

Multiple Monitor Profiling: color match up to four separate displays for color accuracy across all your workflow

Profile Optimization: create unique patch sets for optimal results

Profile Validation and Reminder: view before and after results with included images or load your own, or use the 3D profile gamut viewer; set reminder intervals to re-profile your display

Colour management is critical to my creative process. Remove the guesswork from how people will perceive your art and focus on what really matters.

Don Komarechka

If you want accurate color and are looking to make print that look like what you see on your monitor then a high-end, accurate monitor that is calibrated and profiled is critical.

Michael Clark

We spend an inordinate amount of time and money on the capture and processing side of our craft. Ultimately, however, we view the fruit of our work as a print or a slide show or on the web. It is critical to ensure that what I have spent time and money on to process, looks the same way in print or on the web and there is only one way to guarantee this and that is with Color Management.

Seth Resnick

I am so thrilled to be working with Calibrite to share my passion for a color-managed workflow. The combination of X-Rite technology and Calibrite’s commitment to supporting the photo, video and content communities as well as exceptional customer service, makes this a match made in color-managed heaven

Even More Features


Projector Calibration and Profiling:

Now, your projected presentations can look the same as your monitor. Build an accurate projector profile in just minutes – it’s as easy as building a monitor profile. The process takes all the room conditions into consideration – projected colors, screen color and room lighting – so you can be confident that your projected images are showing the way you intended.

Scanner Calibration and Profiling:

Scanner profiling is super easy. Simply scan and crop your target to generate a high-quality ICC profile. Supports these targets: ColorChecker Classic (Standard and Mini sizes), ColorChecker Digital SG, Reflective IT 8.7/2, Transmissive 4×5 and 35mm IT8.7/1

RGB and CMYK Printer Profiling:

Intelligent iterative profiling technology ensures your output is reproduced accurately from print to print and from printer to printer, delivering professional quality results for smoothness, highlight and shadow detail.

ColorChecker Studio’s superfast scanning can rapidly measure test charts in less than one minute! Simply scan one 50-patch test chart, and ColorChecker Studio will learn how your printer behaves with these colors and dynamically generate a second chart of 50 patches.  Then print and scan this second chart of 50 patches and your profile is perfected!

Option to save your test targets as TIFF files to print later, or for use on a remote printer. ColorChecker Studio also supports various paper sizes.

ColorChecker Studio even has the ability to optimize your printer profile for specific colors, flesh tones or captured spot colors. ColorChecker Studio creates a 3rd test target based on extracted colors from an image and/or spot colors captured by your ColorChecker Studio device. Load your profile, generate your test target, measure and save. It’s that easy.

Black and White Profiling:

Utilizing the same intelligent iterative profiling technology for color prints, our B&W module is specifically engineered to ensure the highest quality results for your black and white prints, resulting in exceptional smoothness, highlight and shadow detail.

Simply scan one 50-patch test chart, and ColorChecker Studio will learn how your printer behaves with these colors and dynamically generate a second chart of 100 patches to better define neutrals.  Print and scan this second chart and your B&W profile is now perfected!

Once you’ve converted your image to B&W and are ready to print, simply apply your custom B&W profile.

There is also the option to create a profile for a specific B&W look including High Contrast Neutral, Platinum, or Sepia. For those of you who love B&W printing, prepare to be amazed.

The Calibrite ColorChecker Studio powered by X-Rite takes your start-to-finish color-managed workflow to an expert level with exceptional accuracy and consistency allowing you more time to focus on creating more images.
