ColorGATE Industrial Productionserver Family Version 10
Wednesday, November 11, 2015
Press release from the issuing company
ColorGATE is introducing in Version 10 its new Industrial Productionserver series for digital industrial printing. In addition to the Industrial Productionserver Lab Edition, which specifically targets developers and manufacturers of industrial digital printing systems, such dedicated solutions as Ceramic, Décor, Packaging and Textile Productionserver are also new.
Other new ColorGATE products include Colorrizer, a new coloration software, and Rapid Spectro Cube (RSC), an extremely fast color measurement system, which, together with the Industrial Productionserver variants, focus on the entire digital production workflow from the creation of the design, to proofing and right on up to final printing. The entire portfolio will be on display at InPrint 2015 in Munich from November 10th to 12th.
The new application-specific Industrial Productionserver solutions are based on ColorGATE know-how in Color Management and the intelligent control of printing systems and have been designed to provide all the functions required in the industrial area of application concerned. A software-integrated quality-control function and the innovative recalibration technology guarantee the color-consistent future production of the same print runs at any time. The Adobe PDF Print Engine (APPE), the world’s currently fastest, highest quality rendering platform for demanding graphics products, comes included. Thus, the combination of Productionserver and APPE supplies printing systems with a constant stream of graphics data in highest quality and speed. ColorGATE’s unique Ink Saver technology for lower ink costs is also optionally available for the new Industrial Productionserver solutions.
It is equipped with all the calibration and profiling tools required for printers and proofers and also allows a color correct display of multichannel files. Ceramic Productionserver can be used across different manufacturers’ products because ColorGATE works together with many different manufacturers of printing systems and printing system components. Thanks to an expansion of Color Management technologies, it is possible to convert ICC-based Color Management from any input color space to any output color space. As a result, multichannel data can be reproduced correctly, regardless of the color configuration of the source data with respect to the target color system: from RGB, CMYK, CMYKplus or nColor to RGB, CMYK, CMYKplus or nColor.
The adoption of 1-bit TIFF engraving data makes it possible to freely combine and further process individual separations. In addition, complete ICC Color Management for files with up to 3 to 8 color channels can be used. User-defined ICC profiles in the correct color mode are allocated to the designated multichannel ink sets to guarantee color-accurate output.
What’s more, ICC profiling can be created outside of the standard process colors, e.g. CMYK. In addition to output profiles, automatic preview profiles are also generated to optimally support the entire Color Management workflow. These preview profiles can be used as reference and soft-proof profiles in all design applications, even for those that do not support n-Color. Deviations in the media color can also be compensated easily and reliably.
Packaging Productionserver also provides for the fully automated generation of control data for the integrated units to allow true-to-contour laser label cutting. In addition, any changes and deviations in the media color can also be balanced out with great ease and reliability, which is particularly important for such natural materials as paper or corrugated cardboard. Existing ICC profiles can be easily adapted to changes in the media color and the viewing light at any time. These adjustments can be made without the need for any complicated new profiling. As a result, a wide variety of different media colors or specific lighting conditions can be taken into account without any delay, which is extremely important for industrial printing processes in particular, and profile adjustments to other types of lighting beyond the D50 (standard), e.g. D55, D65, standard lighting A and Tungsten, pose no problem.
Design data is implemented lengthwise right down to the last pixel. The printing file created is relatively small and suitable for production purposes, which enhances the productivity of the printing process and simplifies the work of the digital print producer (external or in-house). In addition, output lengths and widths can be freely defined and the output resolution directly adjusted to the digital printing system to be used.
