CGS unveils PDF-based approach to monitor proofing

Press release from the issuing company

Chicago (October 12, 2004) -- Expanding its options for comprehensive color proofing, CGS Publishing Technologies International unveiled ORIS Soft Proof at this year’s Graph Expo event in Chicago. Users will have the option to print a color-accurate hard proof. Soft proofing will be a one-time chargeable option for ORIS Color Tuner, but users will not incur a “per-click” or other charge to view the soft proof. Based on its well-known hard copy proofing technology, ORIS Soft Proof will use an automatic hotfolder process to create a color-correct PDF file. An ORIS Soft Proof plugin for Adobe Acrobat 6 will be used to verify the proof’s color settings, and whether color management and monitor calibration is correct. Digital annotations, comments and signatures will be handled by Acrobat’s existing tools -- either locally or as part of an integrated online process. ORIS Soft Proof is designed for all stages of the print production process, from design and creation through prepress and final pressroom operations.Pricing for the soft proofing option for ORIS Color Tuner has not been determined.
