MagicPress application, a basic scanning spectrophotometer costing less than 1000 US$ replaces quite advantageously the best and
most expensive proprietary pressroom spectrophotometers, for all your
CMYK and N-Colors color printing applications.
Actually, MagicPress can open any one to ten colors chart measurement file made on any one to ten colors
print, using X-Rite i1Pro
with free measurement software
such as MeasureTool or i1Profiler, or Techkon or Konica-Minolta
scanning spectrophotometers with software recording their spectral measurements
as CGATS files.
Because there are no standard CMYK densities for matching ISO12647-2-3-4-6 or G7/IDEAlliance
application allows you computing instantly the ideal C, M, Y and K inks densities for
matching any ISO12647-2 (Offset), ISO12647-3 (Newspaper), ISO12647-4 (Gravure), ISO12647-6 (Flexographic
ideal CMYK print densities...
are the ones allowing best
possible visual match with the aim solid CMYK Lab colors specified by
above print standards. These
optimal print densities depend
A LOT on the ink brand, ink reference, ink batch and paper reference and
batches you are using, even if your CMYK ink set is ISO 2846-x compliant.
After one instant scan measurement of your CMYK solid inks printed at any density,
computes the four density
corrections to be done for minimizing the visual distance (ΔE76,
ΔE94, ΔECMC or ΔE2000) between each ink solid colors and
its standard's specified color.
CMYK recommended corrections are specified in terms of density (Status T, status E-DIN or status I), and in terms of ink thickness or pigment
concentration, which is necessary for gravure printing. (And sometimes
quite useful for offset, flexographic, and inkjet printing as well.)
What's more, MagicPress N-CLR options
allows you computing instantly by the same process up to ten density
corrections when printing any one to ten colors standard with or without a CMYK
should install MagicPress software module on each printing press for
replacing obsolete CMYK densitometers and pressroom spectrophotometers, in order to
check your CMYK inks optimal print densities and the critical inks superimpositions at each press setting.
not stay in the dark: Colorsource applications bring the best
solutions to all your
prepress and press-room quality issues, and with using an inexpensive
basic Eye-One Pro family spectrophotometer.
