i1Pro 2 by X-Rite

The i1Pro 2 consists of a Spectrophotometer (color scanner) and software. The software comes in two versions, Basic and Publish.The Basic is later upgradeable to the Publish, and both use the same hardware. You can use the Basic with the our SoftRIP color management tool for acquiring colors to match and reproduce. The Publish version will allows all of the features of the Basic, plus it allows you to create media color profiles with the SoftRIP when using your own media types. 

It's very important to remember when creating color, that the media color will affect the total number of colors you are able to produce (gamut). So if you will be using your own media, you might consider the Publish, but remember the Basic are always upgradable. 

Below are the features of each version of the i1Pro 2.
