Unique Pay-Per-Profile, Cloud-Based Solution Promises Superior Grey Balance, Accuracy, and Repeatability
Insures Ink Savings, Quality Control, and Color Standardization
Rapid Lamination; Many CMA Substrates Ready Within Minutes
BELGIUM - CMA Imaging announces ColorCloud, a unique cloud-based color management solution insuring ink savings, quality control, and color standardization across devices, platforms, and locations. Users pay per click (for each color profile), obtaining profiles that generate highly accurate, repeatable color with superior grey balance, and eliminating the need to make significant investments in hardware or software. Gerardo Cerros, CEO of CMA Imaging, says the company is also offering an option combining ColorCloud with its nanocoated eco-solvent, as well as other, inkjet substrates.
The layers of nanotechnology-based coating on CMA substrates give service providers and their customers unprecedented advantages, such as remarkable color reproduction and extremely fast drying times that allow lamination within minutes of output .
"Digital printers need their color management needs met quickly, and with quality solutions that optimize the power and efficiency of their specific systems," says Cerros. "Because CMA's approach to color is holistic; considering every variable; we are able to develop components that fill the gaps in digital print environments.
"Our research - which is actually based on our far-reaching relationships with service providers - showed that shops needed more accurate, as well as more convenient, profiling solutions," Cerros continues.
To that end, CMA developed ColorCloud to offer efficient, economical, pay-per-click profiling, which is easily accessible and less expensive than training staff or hiring per diem consultants. When you mesh ColorCloud technology with CMA's advanced understanding of substrates, and how they interact with different solvents, superb reproduction quality with less investment in time and money is achieved.
"These are customer pleasers," Cerros says, adding, "as well as examples of what distinguishes CMA from the others in the color management pack."
How ColorCloud Works
With just a few clicks, CMA ColorCloud delivers color-accurate results and consistency day after day, on the production floor. Customers only need a web browser and a measurement device (a combination spectrophotometer and colorimeter [or one of each] are preferred for measuring print and display color readings).
CMA ColorCloud's color algorithms reproduce highly accurate, repeatable color via many methods, including calculation of the color relationship between the four printing inks to produce an outstanding grey balance and an overall reduction in the amount of toner or ink used, yielding considerable toner or ink savings for customers.
