1:00 PM - 1:30PM Color Management in Industrial Printing Processes
Gerrit Andre, Trainer and Product Specialist ColorGATE Digital Output Solutions GmbH

Digital printing is conquering the industrial markets quickly. With it, the demand of color accuracy rises and printbuyers are critically observing the capabilities of color reproduction, especially for brand colors and consistency across printing platforms, e.g. flexographic printing compared to the digital presses. To master these challenges, a color management and RIP solution needs to be implemented that optimizes all aspects of how the ink is printed onto the substrate. Optimized color management, ink optimization, and enabling operators, prepress personnel and designers to optimize their workflows and eventually achieve the best possible results are the goals of the digital workflow. During this session, the presenter will outline ColorGATE’s approaches on how to master these challenges.
