Custom iSis charts with barcodes

Instruments driving software: i1 Profiler 

The following procedure helps to prepare custom charts with barcode support using i1Profiler
- this is intended for experienced users only. 


1. Launch i1 Profiler, switch to Advanced Mode and select CMYK Printer Profiling



2. Select or upload desired Patch Set  (.pxf file) to the i1Profiler default directory. Use right mouse button to
     find the folder on your computer. (Show in Finder)

Drag Patch Set on the first icon in Printer Profiling Workflow:

3. Press Test Chart icon in Printer Profiling Workflow, select iSis XL, enable barcode support,
    next adjust patch layout parameters according to your page size requirements.
    For example VI-816 test for can be printed on a single page with different dimensions:





or any custom size... 


4. Save Page Data - use a unique name which will be easily recognized by operator and
     ChromaChecker system. We strongly recommend designing own naming convention.
     This name will be printed on the Test Chart as both text (on the top - above the black bar) and barcode
     (below black bar).
     It is important to store test Chart definition in i1 Profiler default folder!
     You may check the location by clicking the right mouse button on any existing Test Chart in Assets
     - standard folder:

      / Application Support / X-Rite / i1Profiler / ColorSpaceCMYK / TestCharts


5. Print or Save Test Chart

On this example, the test chart has a Vi-816 layout and has a unique name:  VI-816_Press-029_Coated150

Each output device to be tracked requires a specific "track configuration" using a unique name and or barcode.
Using the Save function, each unique Test Chart (for each device condition) can be created.

All created targets will be shown in the list under Assets in I1Profiler:

In this example, eight different Test Charts based on VI-816 are listed for eight different press conditions (press and substrate combinations) defined as tracks in the ChromaChecker system.

6. Check if the system works correctly: Choose Measurement icon in Printer Profiling Workflow, next insert
    printed Test Chart into iSis and select measure button.

    Be sure that: Use barcode to identify test chart check box is selected!


7. When the scan is complete save measurements as a .rwxf file!

    This is the only file format that supports barcode information!


8. Upload created a .rwxf file in Scanning Template to create proper Measurement Task for your Capture
