Kodak Approval NX Proofing System Certified For Opaltone Digital Color Technology
Press release from the issuing company
Norwalk, Connecticut, USA — Package printers can now proof printed jobs using the Opaltone printing system with one of the industry’s most versatile and accurate digital halftone proofing solutions.
Kodak Polychrome Graphics (KPG) and Opaltone Inc. today announce certification of the Kodak Approval NX Proofing System with Rapid Recipe Color for use with the Opaltone Seven Color printing system, which is optimized to deliver the brilliant and saturated hues demanded by packaging buyers to improve their products’ shelf appeal. KPG and Opaltone also announce the re-certification of the Kodak Approval XP Digital Halftone Proofing System with Recipe Color Software.
“Predictable and consistent color is critical to the packaging industry because brand owners rely on color to represent the brand and attract the consumer’s eye,” said Jerry Willer, Worldwide Proofing Product Manager, KPG. “Packaging buyers can be confident when working with a Kodak Approval system user that they will see an accurate representation of their printed package using the Opaltone system.”
Introduced last year, the Kodak Approval NX Proofing System uses the latest in thermal imaging technology to produce one of the industry’s most versatile and accurate digital halftone proofs. Featuring Rapid Recipe Color technology, the Kodak Approval NX System can accurately reproduce millions of digital hues in a fraction of the time it takes other systems. Moreover, the Kodak Approval NX System can reproduce all Opaltone digital hues, especially the vibrant colors used in the packaging industry.
