Kodak has announced upgrades to its Kodak Proofing Software, “making it easier for printers to spend less time planning and more time printing consistent colour results.” New with the upgrade, Kodak Proofing Software allows users to proof spot colours with “stunning accuracy” with new support for violet ink proofers from the Epson SC-P7000 and SC-P9000 family. The new upgrade also meets print-buyer expectations by achieving standard targets based on ISO 12647, GRACoL, and SWOP, with Certified Proofing for Color Confirmation. The upgrade also “pairs perfectly” with some of the features already in the software – including supporting custom media, industry-leading colour performance, and scheduled calibration. This allows printers to calibrate after hours, meeting print buyer specifications and maintaining industry standards. The end result is to put “top-of-the-line proofing right in the hands of the users” to ensure a “flawless” finished product, said the company. “Kodak Proofing Software is a dependable, easy-to-use solution for inkjet proofing,” said Allan Brown, Vice President and General Manager of Kodak’s Unified Workflow Solutions. “This offering reduces costs by eliminating extensive planning, and allows for an overall increase in an operations’ agility by delivering consistent, reliable results time after time. Kodak Proofing Software builds on the same best-in-class colour technology found in Kodak Colorflow Software, and in the rest of Kodak’s Prinergy Product Suite.”
