SilverFast Auto IT8 Calibration


Fully automatic scanner calibration according to ISO 12641


Consistent colors and color management are often still a certain mystery for professionals and even more so for consumers. For some time achieving color consistent scans has been a field dedicated to professional color consultants and operators only. Using SilverFast Ai Studio 8 professionals and home users are enabled to benefit from consistent colors without the need to bother with the sophisticated process behind it - just by initially calibrating their scanners.

Get consistent colors with just two mouse clicks:
Fully automatic IT8 Calibration

Due to the genuine combination of the automatic frame detection and the integrated barcode technology imprinted on LaserSoft Imaging's IT8 Targets the complete calibration process runs fully automatic and compliant with ISO standard 12641. Not even a prescan is required. Just place the original LaserSoft Imaging IT8 Target on the scanner and simply click the IT8 Calibration button. The ICC profile gets calculated for the individual scanner taking the scan of the target and some reference data into account.

The high-quality IT8 targets - transmissive as well as reflective - are manufactured in LaserSoft Imaging's own production, where small batches and accuracy ensure the upmost precision. You can order your targets from our Online-Shop. You will also find targets for calibrating digital cameras and, since 2009, special Kodachrome targets.

« The full version with IT8 calibration is magnificent! Color is perfect most every time […] The IT8 calibration with the custom targets is by far my favorite tool. Color correction is a very time consuming characteristic of digital imaging and good scans equal less time in the processing of my images for faithful color rendition. »
