GRIPdigital Introduces New DotMeter
Sunday, January 21, 2001
Western Springs, IL, The Centurfax CCDot4 DotMeter distributed exclusively in North and South America by GRIPdigital"includes software which measures both the true physical dot and the true optical (or visual) dot. When used in digital workflows involving the production of plates and proofs, the feature eliminates problems created by dotmeters which calculate dot area values based on logarithmic estimates. In discussing the unique feature, GRIPdigital president and color expert Greg Imhoff commented: „Adding a percentage value to all halftone dots, as most dotmeters do, only contributes to printing problems. For example, adding 15 percent to both a 50 percent dot and a 10 percent dot means that different dot densities are being treated differently. The Centurfax software routinely measures both true physical and true visual values simultaneously, and applies appropriate percentages across the plate or proof. This is especially important when thermal platesetters are used, and Centurfax CCDot4 DotMeter users are able to match plate to proof much more accurately than can users of other dotmeters. The Centurfax CCDot4 DotMeter was introduced at DRUPA 2000, and is now available in North and South America. GRIPdigital is the exclusive distributor in North and South America for the Centurfax CCDot DotMeter® product line. Headed by color expert Greg Imhoff, the company specializes in color hardware and software solutions for the graphic arts industry.
