Colorgate is set to offer brand colour management, in cooperation with X-Rite at Fespa 2019 expo, in hall B4, booth K26. The Europe’s largest international wide format professional printing exhibition will be held from May 14-17, 2019, in Munich. Colorgate, based in Germany, is known for making innovative solutions for commercial and industrial printing.

PantoneLIVE will be offered in Colorgate’s new Spectral Spot Module at Fespa. Spectral characterisation of spot colours is necessary for both commercial and industrial printing applications to ensure brand colour consistency across the entire process chain. Without spectral data, the sharing of spot colours through the supply chain can be ambiguous leading to colour inconsistencies, rework, and added waste. This is especially true when producing digitally-printed packaging or digital proofs for conventionally manufactured packaging, as brand owners are demanding a higher level of colour accuracy and repeatability, Colorgate said in a press release.

Colorgate will support X-Rite’s PantoneLIVE cloud-based digital colour standard ecosystem in its upcoming release. Colorgate is offering the benefits of PantoneLIVE to proofing systems as well as digital production environments to help streamline colour communication and improve production. With PantoneLIVE, brand owners and producers have the option to receive relevant spot colour definitions for non-standardised processes and substrates on the base of spectral data descriptions. This enables brands and designers to communicate colour palettes across substrates and printing processes.

By using Colorgate’s implementation of PantoneLIVE, producers and brand owners gain access to a wide range of digital industrial print devices for label printing, direct-to-object decoration as well as digital printing presses for corrugated packaging. In addition to the wide range of derived Pantone colour definitions, it is also possible for brands to create and define custom colour palettes and share those with everyone involved in the production process, from the design concept to finishing, via the cloud.

With Colorgate’s driver range, control of digital printing systems is effectively provided and brand colour management has now arrived even in non-standardised printing environments, such as digital packaging printing. The entire production workflow, from the designer to prepress and production to finishing, benefits from effective colour management, consistent reproduction, and innovative workflow solutions.

Colorgate will also release the new Spectral Spot Module that enables spectral characterisation of spot colours both for commercial and industrial printing applications and thus improves reproduction accuracy, especially when reproduced using digital printing. The module supports spot colour descriptions in CxF/X4 format according to ISO 179972-4. (GK)
