Tuesday, May 10, 2016

Press release from the issuing company

LYON, France - Alwan Color Expertise, a world-leader in color management and process control software, announces version 6 of its Color Suite. The new Alwan suite of software – ColorHub, PrintStandardizer and PrintVerifier - enables brand owners and designers to define and communicate their colors and quality expectations to print service providers, and to check that their expectations have been actually met by the reproduction process. Come and see what Alwan solutions can do for you on booth #C17, Hall 7.

“Achieving consistent and accurate colors across products, processes and substrates has always been the holy graal for brand owners”, says Elie Khoury Alwan’s founder and president. ”Named colors, conventional techniques and colorimetric definition of spot colors did not allow easy and accurate ink formulation and color reproduction of spot colors. Thanks to the recent CxF/X-4 standard that Alwan Color Suite 6 supports, spot colors solids and tints can be measured, defined and managed spectrally, enabling easy and accurate reproduction across substrates and printing processes. 

CxF workflow Demo

In partnership with IGT Systems, Alwan will be showing visitors how they can create their spot colors CxF/X-4 files, proof them, store them on the cloud, and retrieve them for design or printing purposes - IGT Testing Systems - Hall 06 / C16 .

About CxF/X-4 format

CxF stands for Color eXchange Format. It was designed by X-Rite and released in 2008. Since, CxF file format became ISO 17972 standard and is currently in its third version, CxF3. CxF files are used to communicate color data between measurement devices and third-party software.  CxF/X-4 has been designed to define spot colors accurately by measuring and storing spectral information of ink solids and tints, on substrate and process black. This comprehensive spectral definition allows color management systems to accurately proof and reproduce spot colors even on devices not using the spot ink.
