CGS Award-Winning Technology
Under the Color Proofing listing, the Graph Expo expert panel recognized CGS for its technology in hard copy and soft copy proofing including ORIS Certified Suite, ORIS Hybrid Proofing and ORIS Press Matcher.
ORIS Certified Suite is an ideal color quality assurance control system. ORIS Certified Suite provides simple, trackable proof output measurement using "pass-fail" reports to accurately meet SWOP, FOGRA, 3DAP, GRACoL and other standards. The ORIS solution can be used for any proof, press sheet or monitor proof, regardless of the system or software that was used to create it.
ORIS Hybrid Proofing is the only integrated hard copy and soft copy proofing solution available today. This solution guarantees color management, regardless of the type of proof, to meet SWOP and GRACoL standard. The result is improved quality, optimized production and a cost-effective workflow.
ORIS Press Matcher is CGS' automated system to produce high resolution files for CtP, digital presses and wide format printers. All major prepress file formats are supported, allowing the product to be easily be integrated into existing workflows. ORIS Press Matcher is especially valuable in matching digital press output to conventional offset press quality - or to provide accurate color reproduction across multiple digital presses.
