WayTech Unveils Coloreal Lite; Provides Monitors With Accurate Color
Press release from the issuing company
SAN FRANCISCO, Seybold San Francisco, Booth #1837, Sept. 24 WayTech Development, Inc., developer of the patented Coloreal solution that ensures accurate color from the Internet to the PC, today introduced Coloreal Lite(TM), a downloadable software application designed to provide existing monitors with a similar color matching solution as that found on new Coloreal enabled monitors calibrated at the factory.
Making its debut at Seybold San Francisco, Coloreal Lite expands the Coloreal product line. The Coloreal solution supports: a Coloreal enabled monitor, a PC running Coloreal software, and a Coloreal enabled web site. These three components working together create a closed color loop providing consumers with accurate color from the Internet to the PC. If a consumer does not have a Coloreal enabled monitor and PC, then Coloreal Lite can be downloaded for free from a participating web site.
Although no downloadable color matching solution can provide the monitor-to-monitor consistency as one that is embedded at the time of manufacture, Coloreal Lite provides consumers with a viable alternative. Licenses for Coloreal Lite are now available to web sites participating in the Coloreal program so that they may provide accurate color to all of their consumers.
“Today's monitor population is expected to be replaced in three years with new monitors, many of which will come calibrated and profiled with Coloreal from the factory.The problem is that web sites need the Coloreal solution, today, for all their existing customers to ensure accurate color,'' said Joe Mintz, President of WayTech Development USA. “Coloreal Lite addresses this problem by bridging the gap with older monitors.''
“With Coloreal Lite supplementing the WayTech product line,'' adds Mintz. “Web sites will have a one-stop source for color management services, the Coloreal Web site license, and access to the downloadable Coloreal Lite.''
Today, Coloreal enabled monitors and PCs can be found on shelves of leading electronic retailers. Compaq Computer Corporation ( www.compaq.com ) has added the Coloreal solution to all of its consumer products that have shipped beginning in June of 2001.
