New colour management product is the industry's first, complete DFE-based G7 calibration, verification and profiling solution for cut sheet digital presses
Electronics For Imaging, Inc. announced on 28th July that the EFI™ Fiery® Color Profiler Suite, version 4.9, was awarded G7® System Certification from Idealliance®.
Fiery Color Profiler Suite, which received the G7 certification on 30 May, is the first colour management toolset for cut sheet digital print systems that provides G7 calibration, verification of G7 Grayscale compliance, and output profiling integrated with a digital front end (DFE) so no additional software investment or manual entry/upload of data is required. Detailed procedures are included in an Application Data Sheet available on the Idealliance web site.
Other G7 System Certified software for digital cut sheet presses requires additional investment in, and training for, third party verification software, adding system cost and operator time to ensure compliance.
David J. Steinhardt is the president and CEO of Idealliance. He said
"Working with partners like EFI is an important aspect of ongoing Idealliance industry support. By incorporating G7 compliance and verification into Fiery Color Profiler Suite, EFI is taking a leadership position in the industry that will support printers to more easily and profitably meet customer expectations."
The Fiery Color Profiler Suite calibration workflow creates a traditional calibration set that targets G7 compliance. The result is a re-calibration procedure that is twice as fast compared to competing systems because a traditional Fiery calibration patch target can be used with fewer patches. Reducing the time spent calibrating the digital print system on a daily or per-shift basis means better productivity and profitability for the printing company.
"EFI Fiery Color Profiler Suite makes it easy for even novice users of color management tools for digital printing systems to successfully calibrate, verify G7 Grayscale compliance, and profile Fiery Driven™ print systems to ensure that output more closely matches industry references such as GRACoL® 2013 and SWOP® 2013 datasets, not only for neutral greys but also for saturated colours," said John Henze, EFI's vice president of Fiery marketing. "This means better quality work that print shop customers will notice. We are pleased to bring this industry-leading breakthrough in DFE colour management to the Fiery ecosystem."
