DuPont Color Communication Launches In-line Color Measurement

Press release from the issuing company

June 29, 2004 -- DuPont Color Communication recently announced the commercialization of the DuPont Cromalin b3, a 2-page digital proofing machine. Built on the successful legacy of the DuPont Cromalin b2, the new system boasts a more dynamic, refined and eye-catching proof. Early in 2003 DuPont Color Communication (formerly Color Proofing) launched a new generation of professional DuPont Cromalin Digital Proofing Systems, based on the latest inkjet printhead technology – the b Series. The DuPont Cromalin b2 was readily accepted by the industry with faster sales growth than any previous generation of Cromalin Digital proofing systems. Sustaining its continuous commitment to the professional proofing market, DuPont enhanced this system with the launch of online spectrophotometer calibration, a first for the industry. The proofing process becomes fully automated with Cromalin b series proofing systems and ensures outstanding color consistency within a proof, without operator assistance. GretagMacbeth Eye-One spectrophotometer is an integral, embedded component of both Cromalin b2 and b3 proof engines. The integration of the Eye-One spectrophotometer enables automated calibration and delivers major color measurement improvements, while maintaining color accuracy. The latest generation of professional Cromalin Digital Systems is available to a broad range of industry professionals throughout the graphics chain, including digital photographers, designers and ad agencies. In an industry where the value of color accuracy has a direct correlation to business success, DuPont addresses a strong need of the market.
