Thursday, October 11, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

Compare prints and proofs to G7 and ISO12647 or custom specifications to increase consistency and quality of the printing and proofing process
 
News Highlights

  • SpotOn! Verify quickly identifies if proofs, press sheets, digital, grand format or other types of prints are within tolerance to G7, ISO, or custom specifications. Verify is an evaluation tool using the dynamic properties of true G7 math and is recognized by IDEAlliance as a G7 support tool;
  • The new technology equips proof providers with a report showing the quality of their prints and proofs, quickly identifies trouble spots, and provides sales forces with tools and reports to prove the quality of their printing, while improving relationships with customers;
  • SpotOn! Verify has a valuable feature that allows the user to take paper color into consideration. Since large format printers often use a wide variety of media, this feature ensures proper evaluation of the printing device to specs when the media color varies.
  • Compatible with both Mac and Windows systems, SpotOn! Verify will be available at SGIA.

PORTLAND, OREGON – SpotOn! Press today announced SpotOn! Verify, a new software quality control tool for content creators, photographers, brand managers, proof providers, and commercial, digital, and grand format printers will be featured in the Color Management booth (#357) at SGIA (Las Vegas, October 18-20). The software provides users with a quick pass/fail verification of a print's conformance to G7, ISO12647, or a custom specification. Large and grand format printers can track the consistency of their printing devices to a shop standard and Verify will help determine when it is time to recalibrate.

The Value of SpotOn! Verify For the Sign and Graphics Industries
 
SpotOn! Verify is an internal quality control tool that tracks the consistency of printing devices to an industry specification or a custom reference. SpotOn! Verify can be used to evaluate any printing process where a control strip can be printed and measured, and quickly identifies if a printing device is in or out of tolerance. SpotOn! Verify also stores measurements in a database that can be filtered and searched, so recorded data can be recalled at a later date. It's compatible with both Mac and Windows operating systems.
 
SpotOn! dramatically reduces challenges in matching previously printed jobs when doing reprints; with SpotOn! Verify, the user knows if their printing devices are printing consistently. SpotOn! Verify can also be used to track media consistency from roll to roll, and track print consistency on multiple medias.
 
A valuable feature of SpotOn! Verify is the ability for a user to take media color into consideration. Since large format printers have so many different materials and types of work going through the devices, it is difficult to ensure the printing is consistent over time. With SpotOn! Verify, printers can quickly and easily see if a device is trending out of spec. Media color can significantly change the appearance of a printed piece, so it is important to be able to modify the reference data to match the media white so print consistency is compared between medias with different white points. This allows for a common reference to better monitor print consistency over a wide range of medias to ensure devices are truly in spec.
 
Verifying Quality
 
"SpotOn! Verify will help those interested in improving printing consistency, increasing customer satisfaction, and differentiating their production quality from others in their market." notes SpotOn! Press President Bruce Bayne. "Verify easily identifies variations and changes in the printing process and if they are within specified tolerances to any reference including GRACoL or SWOP. Grand Format printers can track the consistency of their printing devices to a shop standard and Verify will help determine when it is time to recalibrate. Anyone providing proofs will also appreciate the ability to attach a passing proof sticker on each proof sent to customers. Sales staff will be confident they are providing their customers with the highest quality proofs. The result is reduced downtime (since calibration issues can be caught early), greater confidence in the production department, and a marketable quality difference."
