Colour Matching Software Solution for CX1200e/FX1200e by ColorGATE
ColorGATE’s core product, Productionserver, is a modular and scalable RIP, workflow and colour management software. It is used daily around the globe by thousands of digital imaging users and also supports Primera’s CX1200e Digital Printing and FX1200e Finishing System.
Productionserver 10 (PS10) features increased RIP speed through parallel tasks processing, excellent colour management and fast profiling, optimal colour replication and consistent reproduction.
Another highlight is the Ink Saver technology, which can reduce toner costs by up to 30% without any visual losses in quality. Ink Saver technology uses special device link profiles to optimise colour composition. This technology reduces the CMY portions in the motif and replaces them with a greater proportion of black, which significantly reduces the overall quantity of toner used and ultimately also reduces the toner costs of the CX1200e.
Productionserver 10 Select for Digital Label Roll Printing and Finishing
For CX/FX users ColorGATE put together a PS 10 package based on “PS 10 Select”, which is the powerful, budget-minded entry-level solution that contains all needed features for the use with CX1200e and FX1200e. As PS 10 Select is modular in design it allows you to add additional modules at any time to meet new needs.
Productionserver 10 Select enables:
Collective Job (Nesting)
Combine several print jobs into one collective job (nesting). Afterwards they can be ar-ranged either optimised for cutting or opti-mised for material savings.
Segmentation of very large, over-sized graphics and images on the screen into separate segments.
Replace colours and spot colours (automatically or manually) with direct measurement device integration and any input colour or colour range (RGB, CMYK, spot) with CMYK and L*a*b* colours.
This wizard creates printer and media specific linearisation to ensure reliable colour reproduction.
Media Device Synchronisation (MDS)
Enables you to revert your CX1200e to a reference state. Additionally a fine adjustment of several CX1200e is possible in the event of system or environment related deviations. All CX1200e label printers can be matched in a way that identical results are possible.
Enables impressive 2D and 3D comparisons of different colour spaces. It helps you and your customer to understand, which print colours are possible with Primera’s CX1200e.
This feature reduces ink costs by up to 30%, stabilisates the printing process and improves the grey balance.
Profiler Module (PFM)
Enables comfortable, assistant-guided creation of professional ICC profiles. No matter what label material you choose, you can create the right ICC profile for it.
Print and Cut Module (PCM)
The PCM synchronises the CX1200e printing and FX1200e cutting.
Latest Adobe PDF Print Engine (APPE)
Included for a smooth end-to-end, highly automated PDF workflow. It provides many advantages in PDF data handling and colour management.
5 Active Hotfolders
Allows fully automated output according to predefined settings and the cross-platform processing of print jobs. More hotfolders can be added as needed at any time.
