Screen and CGS unveil spot color matching technology

Screen Graphic Solutions and CGS Oris have developed CxF spot color matching technology that predicts halftones and automatically generates complete CxF data

Screen Graphic Solutions and CGS Oris have developed CxF spot color matching technology that predicts halftones and automatically generates complete CxF data.

Spot colors are often used to accurately reproduce brand colors. CxF has been one of methods to capture and transmit all details in spot color printing. Unlike conventional ICC profiles, CxF data includes the spectral information of the spot color, including halftones and transmittance, allowing for more accurate calculations and precise color reproduction.

Available for CGS Oris CxF Toolbox, the new software captures, stores and edits CxF data, in a fast, reliable and safe way. The user is only required to present output color charts under certain printing conditions and input the color measurement data into the CxF Toolbox. The system is then able to automatically generate CxF data of particular spot colors or entire libraries, without requiring any expertise. The generated data can easily be embedded in PDF files to be used for a pre-press process.

The CxF Toolbox is connected to the CGS Oris Color Cloud to communicate all stored CxF data to the entire supply chain, enabling authorized users around the world access to complete and up-to-date color data. Additionally, the Color Cloud can be used with the entire CGS Oris Software Suite, like Press Matcher, X Gamut and can be connected to other workflows and DFEs that work with CxF data.

Screen’s new Truepress Jet L350UV SAI press, processes PDFs with embedded CxF data, and is able to separate them into up to six colors of CMYK + OB. In combination with CGS Oris’s multi-color separation technology, X Gamut, Screen’s inkjet technology enables the reproduction of spot colors, even with an expanded fixed-ink set in high-quality printing.
