ANDOVER, Mass.--April 15, 2002--Monaco Systems, Inc., a leader in the field of color management, announced today the release of MonacoPROFILER 4.0, an ICC profiling application that provides essential features for industries that require critical color management. MonacoPROFILER 4.0 now offers support for LCD flat panel displays; profiling of digital cameras using the GretagMacbeth ColorChecker DC Color Reference Chart; and support for true multi-ink (5-6-7-8 color) profiles, including Pantone Hexachrome, enabling profile editing, soft proofing, and advanced orange and green separation.
MonacoPROFILER is the premiere ICC color management solution for the high-end markets, serving service bureaus, newspapers, large format print vendors, high quality print shops with 4-8 color presses, and other color-intensive industries. The program implements Monaco Systems' highly reputable color technology; the same technology licensed by Xerox, Polaroid, Gerber Scientific, Pantone, ColorSpan, and other OEM clients.
"MonacoPROFILER has become the industry standard for ICC profiling and the choice of high quality graphic art professionals," says George Adam, CEO and founder of Monaco Systems. "This release was designed to meet the latest end user requirements, such as multi-ink profiles, digital camera profiles, and calibration for LCD monitors. MonacoPROFILER provides the most complete solution on the market to maintain accurate and predictable color throughout the workflow."
MonacoPROFILER is the industry's most advanced color management software, providing users with ultimate control in creating ICC profiles for digital cameras, scanners, monitors, and printers. Users can select the number of patches to measure (up to 3,000) when building an output profile. MonacoPROFILER can also build device-linked profiles that adjust the gamut of a proofing device into that of an output device for precise color proofing.
After an output profile is constructed, advanced editing options allow users to manipulate the lightness, saturation, and output curves, and make selective color adjustments to a definable range of colors. As output devices drift, MonacoPROFILER's relinearization option permits users to update their profiles without going through the entire measurement process again, sparing time and frustration.
In addition, MonacoPROFILER provides users with advanced options to control the maximum black and total ink, as well as customize the UCR/GCR curves. To learn more about MonacoPROFILER, please visit: http://www.monacosys.com/monacoprofiler.html.
