CMYK Distributors Introduces Digital Information’s InkZone Report to North American Market

Wednesday, February 01, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

CMYK Distributors, Inc. is pleased to introduce Digital Information’s new InkZone Report quality-control software for X-Rite (Intellitrax/Easytrax) and Techkon (Spectrojet/SpectroDrive) scanning instrumentation, as well as for the cutting-edge InkZone Move solution to the North American market. InkZone Report revolutionizes print production by giving users the ability to monitor daily output to meet international industry standards such as ISO and G7 on any workstation via a local intranet or an HTML Internet server. 

“Modern print production demands the ability to monitor daily output to meet international standards,” said Mark Williams, CMYK Distributors, Inc.’s Director of Sales.  “With instrument independent InkZone Report web-based color reporting, it is easy to verify color value positioning within defined tolerances.  InkZone Report is the latest solution from Digital Information that drives efficiency and innovation in print production and we are delighted to bring it to the North American market.”

With InkZone Report, the densitometrical and spectrophotometrical values are measured and stored in a SQL database. InkZone Report then compiles HTML structured production protocols for single sheets, as well as for whole print jobs, based on these data files. With the click of a mouse, the desired report can be selected and viewed on an unlimited number of workstations running a standard web browser. 

“With InkZone Report, authorized users are guaranteed 24/7 worldwide access to information on the stability of their color printouts and impact variations on print product quality,” said Michael Haenni, President of Digital Information.  “By adding an Apache HTML web server, we give users the flexibility to access InkZone Report from a local, directory-based intranet, as well as through the World Wide Web.”

InkZone Report works with CMYK and spot colors and compares job target values (defined values) against the actual measured values of the solids (Lab and Delta E), dot gain, mid-tone spread and print substrate. The scanned color values are converted into HTML structure and displayed onscreen as graphic diagrams. Values lying outside of the defined margins can be easily identified on these diagrams and the user can immediately see the scanned color information as numerical values.

InkZone report is available immediately in North America through CMYK Distributors, Inc.  Please contact Mark Williams at 973-459-0524 for more information.
