Accurate and consistent color across multiple printing devices
Trying to achieve consistent color on different printing devices and different printing conditions without professional color management software causes a lot of unnecessary effort.
PRESS MATCHER was specially developed to maximize the productivity of all your output devices with just a few clicks. The software lets you produce the same results on any device and repeat print jobs easily, quickly, and reliably – today, tomorrow, or even after a longer period of time.
Whether there are international industry standards such as ISO, GRACoL, or SWOP or specially defined in-house standards of your customers – PRESS MATCHER is the ideal tool to handle all of your color management requirements.
There are many options and features available to customize the software ideally for your individual needs in your daily business, like the INK SAVER module, which helps you to further optimize your production processes to work even more efficiently and save more time and money.
Automated repeatability and consistent colors
Different operators on different days? Jobs that need to be reprinted periodically? PRESS MATCHER is the answer. Color balance is automatically maintained, day-in, day-out and the patented technology guarantees to achieve ideal print results – even after a longer period of time, anywhere around the world and across different devices and printing processes.
Due to changes in the environment, print-outs vary from day to day as the gray balance shifts. Ideally, the system should always remain a perfect balance between Cyan, Magenta and Yellow, also called neutral gray. Achieving this manually is challenging and can be timeconsuming. PRESS MATCHER is the first solution in digital printing that recognizes color shifts and automatically compensates them.
Gradients are a quality characteristic. Smooth gradients depend on an optimal color management setup and an interaction between calibration, paper profiling and neutral grays.
The setup of this balance can be very time-consuming and costintensive. PRESS MATCHER unifies all these steps into one single process, ensuring that colors stay repeatable and stable.
PRESS MATCHER complies with industry printing standards, like GRACoL, SWOP, FOGRA, ISO Coated and Uncoated. More recent standards such as PSO Coated v3 (FOGRA51) or PSO Uncoated v3 (FOGRA52) are also supported.
Not all digital files are created in the same way. User errors, nonstandard desktop applications and legacy file formats lead to unprintable files and production downtimes. PRESS MATCHER’s normalization functions take the worry out of this by automatically creating clean printable files. This guarantees a stable and seamless print production process.
Wide gamut workflow
PRESS MATCHER’s wide-gamut workflow makes use of the print device´s entire color gamut. This ensures high-quality RGB color reproduction with stable and reproducible print results. Wide gamut color matches can be optimized iteratively. Different input color spaces such as sRGB and Adobe RGB within the same PDF are handled perfectly, as ICC input profiles and rendering intents can be set individually.
This workflow is the ideal way to render RGB data – with vivid saturated colors and stable neutral gray tones. This is important for the production of photo books, posters, banners, signboards and similiar products.
