Screen and CGS ORIS unveil new CxF spot colour matching solution
SCREEN Graphic Solutions Co., Ltd. (SCREEN GA) and CGS ORIS announced that they have developed a technology that predicts halftones from limited colorimetric data by using a proprietary algorithm and automatically generates complete CxF data. The software was introduced as a response for a growing demand for skill-less independent colour management solutions to reliably ensure the reproduction of consistent colours across the fleet.
With the software, the entrance in working with CxF data becomes enormously facilitated, and the efficiency for users who already work with CxF data has greatly been improved, resulting in huge amounts of time saved in generating CxF data.
More companies will be able to benefit from the advantages of CxF, as it ensures a holistic communication of a colour. CxF also provides the best fundament for reproducing brand colours on different printing presses, and is a flexible and independent colour management regardless of operator skills.
The new technology is available on the CGS ORIS CxF Toolbox, a software solution to store, edit and communicate brand colours fast, reliable and safe. The setup is simple, because the user just need to output colour charts under certain printing conditions and put the colour measurement data into the CxF Toolbox. Once the setup is ready, the system can automatically generate CxF data of the particular spot colours or entire libraries, without requiring any colour expertise. The generated CxF data can be easily embedded in PDF files to be used in the pre-press process.
The CxF Toolbox is seamlessly connected to the CGS ORIS Color Cloud, a cloud-based solution to communicate all stored CxF data with the entire supply chain. The Color Cloud can be used with the entire CGS ORIS Software Suite including Press Matcher and X Gamut.
SCREEN GA’s newly developed UV inkjet printer for labels, Truepress Jet L350UV SAI, processes PDFs with embedded CxF data and is able to separate them into up to six colours of CMYK + OB. In combination with X Gamut, SCREEN GA’s inkjet technology, allows in this manner to reproduce spot colours even with an expanded fixed ink set in a high printing quality.
