LaCie Blue Eye Pro Proof
LaCie on Monday announced the release of its LaCie Blue Eye Pro Proof Edition monitor calibration and profiling tool for graphics professionals. Meant for use with LaCie's 300/500 Series monitors, it will automatically set the hardware to a user's target colorimetric settings, and can create and activate an ICC profile that maintains consistency throughout. This then allows new monitors to be matched by using the saved Profile. Users can also certify their colors with a single click, allowing for color-accurate reproduction that will make them ideal for soft-proofing.
The Blue Eye also has a Test & Report function that performs color accuracy verification using the widely-accepted UGRA/FOGRA Mediawedge standard colors. Users can also switch between colorimetric profiles, including individual white point, gamma, brightness and black point adjustments, without recalibrating their hardware.
The LaCie Blue Eye Pro Proof Edition is available now, priced at $370. [via Photography Blog]
