CGS awarded Idealliance G7 System Certification with ORIS Lynx
Idealliance recognises latest advancements in ORIS Lynx including the new G7 Curve Connect feature
CGS Publishing Technologies International, LLC announces that ORIS Lynx has been awarded Idealliance G7 System Certification. G7 is a catalyst for achieving colour consistency across varying print technologies. The achievement ensures that users can now benefit from a guaranteed industry-wide standard of excellence when using CGS colour management technology.
ORIS Lynx is CGS’s cloud-based colour management tool designed to deliver precise, repeatable colour along with the ability to generate Custom ICC Profiles. The ORIS Lynx system validates industry standards like SWOP or GRACoL, then guides users step-by-step through the process of creating an ICC Output Profile or a Device Link Profile, each optimised for G7 calibration.
In contrast to competitive systems, ORIS Lynx calculates G7 correction curves directly, simplifying the calibration process and simultaneously establishing a measurable and uniform colour management process.
A number of recent ORIS Lynx advancements were key to the certification of G7, Idealliance’s industry-leading set of best practices for managing gray balance. Pivotal among these is the new G7 Curve Connect feature, which enables process colours to be curved to meet certified G7 standards, producing gray balance and tonal characteristics defined by the G7 specification. With this capability, users of ORIS Lynx now have independent verification of CGS technology for facilitating consistent, repeatable colour across jobs, presses/printers and processes.
The G7 Curve Connect feature can also be found in OEM editions of ORIS Lynx.
“Colour management is crucial to our clients and partners. I can’t imagine selling an offset or digital press without a controlled process for colour managing it,” said Cory Sawatzki, director of ORIS Lynx. “The aim of CGS is the development of powerful proof and workflow software solutions to colour manage every step from prepress to print production. Consistently and seamlessly producing repeatable colour, day after day, is a core need of our customers. They need to be able to trust the tools that they use – this G7 Certification is a powerful endorsement of our own efforts here at CGS and the benefit of peace-of-mind to our customers.”
