Single page test that brings the most complete digital press report.

VI-816 Variation Test Chart

Vi-816 is developed by ChromaChecker™ and is copyrighted. ChromaChecker™ users can use it as long as they have a valid Print Inspector subscription.


VI-816 is designed to calculate the variation of the patches of the same kind located in various locations on the sheet. The following table shows a typical variation report. We can see that single page test evaluates thousands of pairs of the same color for both solids and tints.


In order to measure variation, we strongly recommend selecting a larger possible variant of this test chart.  VI-816 is designed for digital presses, but it can be also used for any other output devices. If the output device has a larger sheet it is recommended to print two or more copies to efficiently cover as much as possible from the whole device printing area.  

Additionally test firm contains all patches required to analyze dot gain and grays including accurate G7® or TVI evaluation and calibration.


and much more...


The size of the Test Chart is determined by:

  1. Printing Sheet size
  2. The instrument that has to measure it


Supported instruments:

  1. X-Rite iSis (v.1, 2) — CC Capture
    Note: for resizing and barcode support we recommend i1Profiler to create/edit a template
  2. X-Rite i1iO (v.1, 2, 3) — CC Capture (version split into 2 pages)
  3. X-Rite i1 Pro (v.1, 2, 3) — CC Capture
  4. X-Rite eXact w. Scan option — CC Capture
  5. Konica-Minolta FD-9 
  6. Techkon SpectroDens — CC Capture
  7. Barbieri LFP — Barbieri Gateway

VI-816 has many versions - dedicated to various instruments and prepared for a different size. If possible we recommend using a version without separation bars, but for some instruments, there is no choice.

If you need a very specific size import VI-816 from Capture Inspector Public Library and create a scanning template defining the most optimal patch sizes. 

We have designed a variant of the VI-816 test form that is split into pages - the second half is turned 180° - also available in Public Library


Third-party Software

You may also use a 3-rd party application to prepare a scanning template/job required by this software.

When editing sure that the layout of the chart is not lost (34x24patches).
