Be sure you get exactly the color you expect, with our color and resource management software tools for Advanced Function Presentation™ (AFP™) datastreams. AFP Resource Installer consolidates four interfaces into one that allows you to install and manage AFP color management, font and image resources. The resources can be stored externally and fetched as needed for printing. Integrate AFP Resource Installer into your color production workflows, and you can improve overall digital color management.
Inconsistent color output puts off commercial print customers and can be expensive to troubleshoot and rerun. AFP Resource Installer ensures consistent, accurate color output across different high-speed printers by providing the control you need over color, font and images to obtain output that matches exact specifications.
The color management resource (CMR) installer lets you create CMRs from files containing color data, index them and reference them when you want to find an exact shade. Also, you can map device-specific CMRs to generic CMRs in order to replace a general description of the intended output with specific instructions for producing the output on a particular device.
The data object installer manages files that contain image object data such as JPEG and TIFF files. The use of this installer allows you to modify the final appearance of color data by controlling how it’s rendered. Save time by associating CMRs with a data object, searching resource libraries for an installed data object and replicating changes in a resource library to other libraries.
Our color management software also includes a font installer that provides additional control over document appearance. The installer manages WorldType fonts for AFP print servers, WorldType fonts for AFP clients and other OpenType/TrueType fonts in Microsoft® Unicode format.
