508 Color Reflection Spectrodensitometer

The X-Rite 508 Spectrodensitometer brings the newest color control technology to a device designed specifically for basic 4-color reproduction.

Spectral technology gives the X-Rite 508 unmatched performance in monitoring basic quality control for process color print jobs. The unit goes anywhere to quickly measure common density and dot functions. 

Ideal for:
* basic commercial applications
* publication packaging
* newspaper printing
* basic prepress applications

It measures GATF proofing bars, QuarkXPress® color bars, Ugra/Fogra color control elements and other quality control targets used during the prepress process.

Color Reflection Densitometer - Ideal for Newspapers
X-Rite added specialized 4-color newsprint functions aboard the X-Rite 508 to ensure color accuracy and consistency across press runs and over time. These include newsprint-specific density functions and gray balance. The X-Rite 508 achieves precise color quality control with newsprint and inserts by simultaneously measuring the densities of cyan, magenta, and yellow in a special News mode. Simply measure a three-color gray bar, masthead, banner, weather map, or another color element. The X-Rite 508 instantly informs you whether any of the colors need adjusting.

When selecting your filter option, you must choose EITHER UV OR POLARIZATION. You cannot order a unit with both UV and POLARIZATION filters.
