With Apple’s recent announcement of the new Mac OSX 10.7 Lion software…
… you might well be wondering how the update will affect your X-Rite device?
The new Mac OSX 10.7 Lion will no longer support software relying on Rosetta. This will directly affect those of you with the retired i1Match, ProfileMaker and MonacoPROFILER applications. There may be workarounds for some users, but obviously this isn’t ideal for most!
As a result, X-Rite are providing customers with upgrade paths so you can continue to use your X-Rite device if you choose to upgrade to Lion.
The current models of i1Profiler, ColorMunki or huey software are not affected. Basically, they are fully compatible with existing Apple OS systems, as well as the up-coming Lion.
For owners of an i1Display 2 or i1Display LT, X-Rite are developing a ‘i1Profiler MAC only monitor module’, which will essentially only recognise the i1Display 2 and LT devices. This is scheduled for release in September 2011. Any customer who purchased – and registered – their device from 1st January 2011 onwards will be eligible for a free update to this module.
All purchases made before 2011 will be subject to a nominal fee.
Other upgrade paths are also available.
X-Rite have constructed a detailed chart identifying the appropriate upgrade paths based on your original purchase solution. You can view this chart at www.xrite.com/lion
You can also select to be notified when the i1Profiler Mac only monitor module is available, and register your product there too.
If you have any queries about Lion and your X-Rite device, speak to one of our Tech team who will advise you.
**AUGUST 2011 update**
This update/upgrade will now be free of charge to ALL i1Display 2 and i1Display LT owners, so long as you have registered you’re solution. Make sure you have registered your device with x-Rite so you can receieve notification when available. X-Rite are still planning September availability.
