Onyx Graphics and Konica Minolta have announced the immediate, fully integrated support for the Konica Minolta Autoscan Spectrophotometer FD-9 in Onyx 12.1.

Onyx 12.1 software delivers accelerated speed and performance, a simplified user interface and advanced finishing tools so printers can accomplish much more in less time.

This solution also integrates with the fully automated chart reader Konica Minolta FD-9. Onyx users will ultimately benefit from faster measurements of more compatible substrates.

This is a perfect match to the new features we integrated into Onyx 12.1 to improve the productivity for our customers,”

“Since we introduced the first M1-instruments to the printing industry, more and more users are benefitting from our innovative technology,” said Claas Bickeböller, Product Manager for Graphic Arts at Konica Minolta Sensing (Europe). “The FD-9 turns out to be the must-have tool for efficient colour management for every printing house. We’re very happy that now, all Onyx users can improve their colour workflow.
