Advantages of Updating Profiles at a glace:
Based on a desired print standard profile and just a few measurements create quickly and effortlessly an updated ICC profile and DeviceLink profile that corresponds exactly to your current printing conditions. With the new optimized profiles proof and print match again.
- The software leads you with a few steps to the goal of creating updated profiles for your printing condition.
- By printing color control strips on to your new paper, you can update an existing printer profile.
- Create a high quality Correction DeviceLink profile for converting of your print data to your individual printing condition. You do not have to think about using the right parameters for pure primary and secondary colors, the total amount of color or preserving the separation characteristics. CoPrA automatically takes care about this and much more.
- Receive a comprehensive PDF report telling you all about the desired printing standard, the deviations you currently have and the results of the optimization using the updated profile.
CoPrA 4 with integrated Reprofiler technology
Update ICC printer and DeviceLink profiles easily and securely to modified printing conditions
Have you ever wanted to print in accordance with a specified printing standard, including an international or in-house standard, but your existing printing condition differs from this standard? Or perhaps you had to replace ink but you don't have the time to print and measure a full blown test chart? In such cases, the new module Update Profile in CoPrA 4 is your solution. This feature will allow you to create a new ICC profile and optionally a DeviceLink profile that corresponds exactly to your current printing conditions very quickly and effortlessly.
Possible uses of updated profiles
Thanks to the updated printer profile generated by the Reprofiler technology, you have greatly improved conditions for producing both the soft proof and the hardcopy proof. For example, you can use the updated profile to obtain a simulation in the proof (hardcopy or soft proof) of what the customer data will look like on your press. This will allow you to compare the result with a proof print based on the original standard profile. You can also convert your printing data from the standard profile to the new updated profile in order to obtain the best possible match between the standard printing conditions and the deviating conditions. You should do the latter with the help of a high-quality DeviceLink profile created optionally from CoPrA in an automated way. CoPrA will automatically use the correct settings to create the DeviceLink profile.
What would the alternative look like?
It is much more time and cost-effective to update an existing, high- quality standard profile or in-house profile. Updating is easy by means of just a few measurements on the new paper, consisting of the paper white, a print control strip, a media wedge or, the best option being a wedge supplied by ColorLogic. You can already achieve a marked improvement with just the minimum information of 20 color patches. The more information you can provide, the better the newly created profile will be, and the more accurately the updated profile will reflect your current printing conditions.
