Mechelen, Belgium -- March 19, 2004 -- PerfectProof, the leading developer of digital proofing solutions introduces version 2.0 of its ProofMaster Folio, Mezzo and Grande software packages. The highlight of the new version is the ability to certify that proofs are accurate according to an internationally accepted ISO standard. Certifying a proof works as follows: ProofMaster adds a small color control strip to the bottom of the proof which is then measured with a spectrophotometer. ProofMaster provides a detailed report comparing the colors measured on the proof with those from the customer's press target. ProofMaster then applies the ISO 12647-2 standard to determine whether the proof is accurate. ProofMaster can also print a summary report on a small label which can be affixed directly to the proof. This label demonstrates to whomever views the proof that it has been tested and is accurate.
“With the ProofMaster Certified Proof,” explains Mark Verbist, President, PerfectProof Europe. “Our customers can demonstrate to their clients that a specific proof is absolutely accurate. This eliminates subsequent arguments and allows the proof maker to protect his interests. There are international color standards out there, developed to make the professional’s life easier. Relying on these standards to certify contract proofs, and avoid costly disputes about color, just makes sense.”
Other new features: more precision than ever
ProofMaster 2.0 also features a host of new tools for editing color profiles that will allow users to make their proofs more accurate than ever. These editing tools include: Dot Gain Correction, Gray Correction, White Point Correction, and Primary Color Correction. Upgrades to ProofMaster 2.0 are available for all users of ProofMaster Folio, Mezzo and Grande.
