New product

X-RiteDot is a line of portable dot-analysis HALF TONE DOT METERS that provide digital screen ruling assessment, on-board video dot magnification, and dot shape analysis on almost any media. X-RiteDot provides operators with the most accurate solution for evaluating dot percent, resulting in quality and consistency in the imaging workflow.

Better dots make better reproductions. And with X-RiteDot meters, you can get the most out of your conventional or CTP imaging workflow, with confidence in plates, film and proofs.

Go Beyond Accurate
The X-RiteDot meters go beyond densitometry to provide the industry-certified most accurate solution for evaluating dot percent, resulting in quality and consistency on press.

With the industry-leading ccDot engine, the X-RiteDot lineup brings valued X-Rite service, reputation and strength to the area of dot analysis. Accurate feedback on dot size, digitally-accurate screen ruling assessment, on-board video dot magnification and dot shape analysis yield an unbeatable solution in dot measurement.

Complete Line of Dot Technologies
What if the same accurate dot evaluation used to produce the industry-leading plate dot meter could be used to measure halftone films, or even digital or contact proofs? Well now it can be.

With the X-Rite ComboDot you can accurately analyze the exact screen percentage of any hard-dot or soft-dot film on any light table. And to complete the picture, ComboDot includes a separate density head and transmission base for conventional film density measurements.

X-Rite PrintDot yields accurate physical dot size measurements from comps, proofs, or press prints, further extending the reach of accurate dot validation. Use it to calibrate conventional or digital proofing solutions, to accurately evaluate customer-supplied materials, or to document data and digital pictures that confirm the visual image you see in a magnifying loupe.

Simple To Use
A simple, single button press is all that is required to capture images or make measurements of any dot image, on prints, plates or films. The graphical menu provides easy, quick and simple access to the wide range of enhanced features of the X-RiteDot lineensuring that any operator is able to make measurements with a minimum of training.

No User Calibration
The X-RiteDot line was engineered with a simple design concept that adjusts for the plate background image automatically. This means that not only are measurements faster but also more accurate -reducing user errors that can be common with competitive solutions. X-RiteDot is simple, just aim and measure.

Easy To Enhance
Users can easily upgrade X-RiteDot models to add more features as their needs grow, all without the need to return it to the factory. Enhancements are made via a simple user entered keycode to unlock features.

Unparalleled Accuracy
The X-RiteDot product line features high-resolution 14,000 dpi optics. This allows measurement of standard (AM amplitude modulated) screens from 85-250 LPI as well as stochastic (FM frequency modulated) screens as fine as 20 microns. In addition, the unique view-through aperture offers the most convenient and accurate placement, ensuring you get a quality measured result.

Advanced Display
X-RiteDot meters offer a large format, easy-to-read, graphic display which offers a variety of information at the touch of a button. Easily view data including percentage dot, screen ruling or screen angle data. Switch to video mode and view real dot shapes and patterns.

You can even magnify the image to view misshapen dots or artifactsthe true alternative to a magnifying loupe. You can also save reference images for later review or for transfer to a computer for further use.
