Hainburg, Germany (January 18, 2005) -- Continuing its strong leadership role, CGS Publishing Technologies International has announced FOGRA certification for ORIS Color Tuner and CGS proofing media. In December, FOGRA issued its technical findings on six different combinations of CGS media and Epson or Canon printers, citing ORIS Color Tuner as having met or exceeded certification requirements, including color accuracy, proof repeatability and consistency over time.
The tests all simulated FOGRA27 printing conditions, and included three CGS proofing papers: Premium Proof (Pearl), Satin and Select. Each paper is formulated to meet the proofing requirements of publication and commercial printing. The devices tested were the Epson Stylus Pro 4000 and the Canon imagePROGRAF w2200. The test files included the Altona suite of PDF/X files, which ORIS Color Tuner processed perfectly. All measured test results were well within FOGRA’s requirements for proofing accuracy and quality.
FOGRA certification is especially important for publication printers seeking color consistency for complex, multi-page jobs printed at multiple print locations worldwide. ORIS Color Tuner is the first automatically-calibratable, drop-on-demand inkjet proofing system to be FOGRA certified. It was also the first proofing system of its kind to receive the comparable North American certification, SWOP, in early 2003.
Customers who wish to make ORIS proofs in accordance with FOGRA specifications can easily do so, by downloading a reference printer file and FOGRA color table from the CGS web site. The FOGRA report detailing ORIS’ certification will be available upon request.
