New version adds automatic device calibration to industry leading, SWOP-certified inkjet proofing system
Hainburg, Germany (October 6, 2002) -- At Graph Expo 2002, CGS Publishing Technologies International debuted Version 5 of its SWOP-certified inkjet proofing system, ORIS Color Tuner. Designed to simplify and reduce costs for contract quality proofing, the new version features automatic device calibration, independent spot color calibration and enhanced remote proofing capability.
"ORIS Color Tuner is already the leading inkjet proofing system for Epson and HP devices, said company CEO Trevor Haworth. "We were the first to be SWOP certified on Epson, and we are introducing support for Canon devices at the show. Version 5 adds even more value to the system -- especially if you can’t afford to hire a color scientist."
Color Tuner 5 allows each device to be calibrated automatically, using standard color measurement data from a spectrophotometer from GretagMacbeth or X-Rite. The program’s traditional calibration and selective color correction controls are still available. Another significant advance is spot color calibration -- allowing users to output Pantone and other spot colors more accurately, without adversely affecting the appearance of CMYK images. Also added is on-screen previewing and direct CMYK driver support for the Canon imagePROGRAF models W2200, W7200 and W7250.
ORIS Color Tuner 5 is scheduled for release in Q4, and will be free for registered users of version 4.4.
