Organize & communicate brand colors with all spectral properties with CxF TOOLBOX

From initial design to the digitally or conventionally printed product, color communication always needs to be reliable, effective, and easy. The ability to organize brand color information with all of its print-related properties is the essential basis for that. CxF is the key. With this format, it is possible to transport all characteristics of brand and spot colors. And since it is an open standard, CxF can also be used by anyone involved in the production process.

  • Spectral characterization of colors using CxF data – with all their print-relevant properties and parameters.
  • Manage and communicate color via an open standard format.
  • Import, analyze and correct CxF data easily.
  • Generate new CxF data quickly, and more!

Proofing for accurate and reliable simulation of printing results is a snap with COLOR TUNER

With COLOR TUNER you can easily create contract proofs for any printing standard - no color expertise required. The web-based application has an intuitive interface and combines printer calibration and automatic color matching, which enables users to produce color accurate printouts at local and remote locations anywhere in the world.

  • Soft and hardcopy proofs matched to the same standards e.g. Fogra, GRACoL, SWOP, EDAP.
  • Spectral data based proofing from any location in the world.
  • Contract quality, reproducible results thanks to patented iterative color management technology for process and spot colors.
  • Intuitive wizard-based user interface and printer setup.

Achieve consistent color on different print devices and different conditions with the “all rounder” PRESS MATCHER

PRESS MATCHER was specially developed to maximize the productivity of all your output devices with just a few clicks. The software lets you produce the same results on any device and repeat print jobs easily, quickly and reliably.

  • Accurate, consistent color reproduction on different printing presses and processes.
