Onyx Graphics, Inc., the market leader in powerful and reliable wide-format and grand-format RIP and print workflow software, has taken the financial sting out of print errors with ColorCheck, a process control toolset for colour accuracy, consistency, and conformance to standards such as G7 and FOGRA. With ColorCheck, which was introduced this summer with ONYX 18, Print Service Providers can have confidence in meeting customer colour expectations.
"ColorCheck represents so much more than ensuring superior output that can be proven to print buyers," said Bryan Manwaring, Director of Product Marketing at Onyx Graphics. "We're seeing ColorCheck effectively stop the need for reworks from bad prints."
"ColorCheck literally saved us during a time-sensitive print job for one of our national customers," said Leonard Moore, President and CEO of Signboom (Langley, BC, Canada). "We ordered new media to meet the deadline on a two-part print run, and ColorCheck caught the difference in white-point; this saved us thousands in wasted ink and media from wrong prints. Colour accuracy and consistency is incredibly important to our customers and us. Now we won't print without ColorCheck."
ColorCheck is the only industry toolset for colour accuracy, consistency, and conformance to standards that can be validated to print buyers. With ColorCheck, users benefit from having confidence in meeting customer brand colour needs, peace of mind from knowing output consistency before printing, and have a site-wide control of print output quality across devices for all media profiles. In addition, in-product indicators reduce waste and save both ink and media with alerts built into the RIP-Queue interface, notifying the user when to perform printer maintenance.
ColorCheck is part of ONYX 18 software, the company's recent version release, and is an integrated module in ONYX Thrive, accessible with an ONYX Advantage Gold subscription. Current ONYX users can request a key update and all other customers can gain access through a licence purchase. The ONYX Advantage subscription programme gives ONYX software users a quick and easy way to keep their software current and secure their investment.
