Colour gives a document greater impact and improves readability. However, to make a really good impression, the colours in a document must always be reproduced consistently. Corporate Identity guidelines also demand consistent and precise reproduction of colour schemes for company logos, for example, irrespective of the output system. The Colour Profiler Suite is an important tool for achieving absolutely precise colour consistency. This is done with the aid of ICC standard profiles, which can be used on all Develop colour systems equipped with a Fiery® controller. A spectral photometer and positioning aids are included in the scope of delivery with the software. Unlike a basic densitometer, a spectral photometer can recognise colour tones and thus measure special colours, for example.
- Creation of ICC profiles: With the generation of ICC profiles, this colour management tool matches the settings of scanners, digital cameras, monitors and printers. This ensures that an original document read in using any input device can be reproduced accurately on any output device.
- Profile Inspector: With the Profile Inspector, profiles can be compared and represented in 3D. They can then be adapted using another tool, the Profile Editor.
- Calibration of Develop systems: The ES-2000 spectral photometer is a fast, easy-to-use colour calibrator that is connected to the computer via a USB interface. Because the ES-2000 is addressed directly by the calibration module of the normal Fiery® software, it can also be used as a densitometer to record fluctuations in colour reproduction for calibration purposes.
- Creation of libraries with spot colours: This can be done with a Fiery® controller and is partic¬ularly useful for work during the pre-press stage. The spectral photometer calibrates the colours for the Fiery® module “Spot-On”. With the new Color Verifier, colour values can be measured and compared based on their deviations.
- Monitor calibration for soft-proofing: The documents can be checked on the screen (soft-proofing) after the monitor has been calibrated.
