CGS expands product portfolio with Oris X Gamut

The latest product from leading color management developer CGS is Oris X Gamut, a fully automated software product for expanded gamut printing on conventional and digital presses.

Oris X Gamut expands the full color space and multi-color ink set of the press. A specific spot color can be reproduced without the need for a special ink formulation, a feature of definite interest to brand owners and the packaging and label industries. In addition, Oris X Gamut increases the color saturation of images, especially important in the production of brilliant pictures for photobooks and complex packaging designs, for example.

All this is possible through a perfect match of software features and intelligent workflow tools. Oris X Gamut extracts the DNA of the spot and CMYK/RGB colors in the print job and translates them into the expanded fixed color palette (CMYK+n) of the press. Usually this expanded gamut is achieved at press by adding orange, green and violet to the standard process inks (CMYK+OGV). The process makes use of the included special color reference tables, i.e. the Pantone color library or a table created automatically from imported CxF data.

The software leads the user through the whole process, from reading in the test chart to output of the final, optimized, print job – all done automatically.

With Oris X Gamut, press set-up and make ready times are significantly reduced, regular ink changes and the subsequent clean-up time are, for all intents, eliminated. Press up-time is greatly increased as the fixed ink set means that different print jobs can be combined into a single press run. Expensive special inks are no longer required, are not wasted and inventory costs are reduced. Paper waste is also reduced. All leading to a much more environmentally-friendly process.
