An Affordable Solution For Basic 4-Color Quality Control: 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 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.

The 508 is ideal for basic commercial, publication packaging, and newspaper printing operations.

The 508 Is Ideal For 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.

The 508 Is Ideal For Newspapers: X-Rite includes specialized 4-color newsprint functions within the 508 to ensure color accuracy and consistency across press runs and over time. These include newsprint-specific density functions and gray balance.

The 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 508 instantly informs you whether any of the colors need adjusting.
