Wilmington, DE, September 22, 2014 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- QUBYX, a leading technology contributor to medical imaging and color management industries, announces the release of a new FREE display verification software, that performs ISO 12646 testing and builds a report with a clear pass and fail result. If the test fails, the user can add on licenses to unlock Display, Printer and Camera calibrations.
“We’ve been working on this solution with the typical issues of creative and prepress specialists in mind, ” says Marc Leppla, the Director and CTO of QUBYX. “The highly skilled professionals who deal with color every day usually expect their main working tools (camera, display and printer) to be finely tuned to represent every shade of color in the same way. The color they see in real life should look the same on paper. With PressProof it has become possible.”
As one of the beta-testers, Nakul Padalkar, Print and Graphics Consultant put it, “For the last few months, I started using PressProof exclusively for calibration of monitor, Nikon DSLR Camera and large format Inkjet Printers. The PressProof software has been the best solution for all my needs in Pre-Press and Press. The calibration with PressProof is powerful and fast, with consistent ICCV4 profiles and with support to multiple devices. The Qubyx team is incredible in response to feedback and additional feature requests.”
PressProof performs color calibration to international standards including BT 709 and CIE, and a quality assurance test to ISO 12646 standard - a standard that defines the requirements to color displays used for soft proofing. The ISO test, along with such options as Display testpattern, Calibration conformance, Measure color is FREE. The software generates a version 4 ICC profile with 3-dimensional color instruments and 16-bit precision to save color characteristics for the given device. All colors in the created profile have extremely low delta E values. This profile allows cross-platform communication of color and ensures color-accurate viewing for all devices, involved in image reproduction and prepress process.
The main features of PressProof are:
- All-in-one software: display, projector, camera and printer profiling
- RGB, CMYK, monochrome printer profiling
- Unlimited gamma white point and luminance settings
- Gamut and uniformity calibration
- ISO Test for SoftProofing
- Detailed report of all calibrations and verifications
- Flexible and user-friendly scheduling system to maintain high quality of display performance
- Remote display management server
- Compatible with nearly any display, graphic controller and sensor
- Multiplatform (compatible with the latest versions of Windows and Macintosh OS, including Windows 8, Windows 7 32 and 64 bit, and Macintosh OS X from 10.6)
- Flexible licensing which unlocks additional features - display, camera and printer calibration: all-in-one (camera, printer, display) or a license covering only camera/printer/display calibration
With PressProof Remote Management color calibration and quality control can be performed on all displays in multiple locations from a secure web server with a relay system for additional data protection. The system administrator can schedule tasks for client machines, and a notifier on the client machine will remind the user to perform the task when it is due.
