Kodak Names CHROMIX New Channel Partner For KODAK COLORFLOW Custom Color Tools

Press release from the issuing company

ROCHESTER, N.Y., September 30 - Kodak today announced an agreement with CHROMIX, a new channel partner for distribution and customer support for the award-winning KODAK COLORFLOW Custom Color Tools profile editing software in North America. CHROMIX was founded in 1998 to provide technical services and products to businesses in content-production industries. They are dedicated to providing solutions for color management and image fidelity. "At CHROMIX, we have worked hard to build a suite of best-in-class color tools for the graphic arts market. We are very pleased to work with Kodak to deliver this award-winning color management software to our customers," said Steve Upton, President, CHROMIX. KODAK COLORFLOW Custom Color Tools version 3.1 earned a 2005 GATF InterTech Technology Award for the value it delivers to color management experts, enabling them to optimize the color reproduction of devices equipped with International Color Consortium (ICC) compatible color management. Using the latest version of KODAK COLORFLOW Custom Color Tools, users easily edit and create profiles based on ICC standards to facilitate color matching across an extensive variety of input, display and output devices. The software operates on the MACINTOSH OS as a set of ADOBE PHOTOSHOP plug-ins, allowing profiles to be edited as easily as color correcting an image with the ADOBE PHOTOSHOP Image Adjust tools. "By using familiar PHOTOSHOP color adjustment tools, KODAK COLORFLOW software is an easy-to-use method of visually tuning ICC profiles in a manner that is consistent with the way prepress, printers and photographers normally operate to adjust the color of any image," said Doug Goertzen, Worldwide Director, Color Solutions, Kodak's Graphic Communications Group. "The ease of use helps meet the output requirements of their customers while improving turnaround time and increasing the profitability of their operations."
