If you have an Epson R2400, 4800, 7800 or 9800 printer using the new Epson K3 inks, and you own or have access to one of the spectrophotometers listed below, then you may be interested in a new utility from Epson, called ColorBase. It is available for both Macs and PCs.

ColorBase is designed to calibrate your particular Epson printer, the ink batch and paper batch that you’re currently using, and the Epson provided profile (or custom made ones) to match Epson’s factory reference standard. It is available as a free download from several Epson web sites around the world.

For Epson 2400 and 4800 printers, spectrophotometers that V1.0 supports include the Gretag Macbeth EyeOne (not the EyeOne display), Gretag Macbeth iCColor 210 and 211, and the Gretag Macbeth Spectrolino, SpectroScanT and SpectroScan along with the Gretag Macbeth MeasureTool application. Version 1.1, which is used with the 7800 and 9800, also supports the X-Rite DTP20 and DTP70.
