PantoneLIVE is a cloud-based, color-management service that maintains digital color libraries.


X-Rite Inc. recently reached an agreement with ColorMetrix Technologies LLC to offer a seamless way for users of VerifiedColor software to access PantoneLIVE color libraries.

“Packagers, converters, wide-format printers, and other customers that use VerifiedColor software to validate colors will save time and improve the accuracy of workflows throughout their supply chains with the new PantoneLIVE user interface,” says James Raffel, CEO of ColorMetrix.

ColorMetrix, a Milwaukee-based developer and provider of color-validation software, is currently developing the VerifiedColor version that connects with PantoneLIVE, with an expected launch date in summer.

"We believe PantoneLIVE will add value to both of our respective clients looking to streamline their color verification process," Raffel says. "VerifiedColor takes custom spot color libraries and manages them with a state-of-the-art workflow and database system."

PantoneLIVE is a cloud-based, color-management service that maintains digital color libraries. Brand owners and other approved members of the supply chain can manage digital access rights and facilitate color communication across materials from design to production.

"We are very pleased to be working with ColorMetrix on providing this solution to its customers, many of whom use Pantone's universal color language," says Iain Pike, market director for PantoneLIVE. "Our new relationship with ColorMetrix is another example of how software providers and developers can tap into the power of PantoneLIVE seamlessly as a way to add value to their products in a relatively inexpensive manner."
