Australian colour management, ISO and G7 specialist, Colour Graphic Services, has been appointed as dealer for the Myiro-1 and Myiro-9 spectrophotometers in Australia and New Zealand.
Myiro, a Konica Minolta-owned company, has a strong presence in the US and Europ,e where it has attracted accolades from the most qualified colour experts.
“The two Myiro colour measurement devices fit perfectly into Colour Graphic Services’ range of prepress colour measurement instruments and ICC profiling tools,” Colour Graphic Services managing director David Crowther said.
“In fact, Techkon was so impressed, it is reselling Myiro in the US – filling the gap of a low investment ICC profiler with high accuracy, and a fast chart-reading version for rapid profiling.”
The Myiro-1 is a hand-held spectrophotometer for any third party supported software such as Mellow Colour PrintSpec, EFI, ORIS ColorTuner, Agfa, ColorGate, Creo, ErgoSoft, and Color Logic.
It relays measured patches, strips or charts (using the measuring guide), wirelessly, avoiding cables and USB cables. In a single pass scan of a Fogra strip, for example, it sends M0, M1 and M2 in one action.
As for the Myiro-9, it is a super-fast auto chart reader that delivers data to the majority of third party profiling software used in all print disciplines – 1,500 patches in four minutes, according to the company.
Myiro-9 is the reference instrument used by major print machine manufacturers. Like the Myiro-1, it also includes M0, M1 and M2 data in a single scan. It handles virtually all known colour charts and control wedges and is never fooled by optical brighteners (OBAs) added to many substrates and papers. Myiro-9 can be adapted to a very wide range of substrates.
“The Myiro spectrophotometers are total quality-manufactured in Japan, by the Sensing division of Konica Minolta and they measure colour as you see it. Accurate profiling has never been faster or easier,” Crowther said.
Myiro devices are available through Colour Graphic Services in Australia and New Zealand and will be part of its demonstrations at September’s PacPrint, in Melbourne.
