Konica-Minolta has launched its Color Care Suite in the US, software for defining, attaining and maintaining color quality standards in the bizhub PRESS color digital presses. The manufacturer is capitalising on its Sensing instruments division to offer theKonica Minolta FD-5 Spectrodensitometer with the Color Care Suite, which should allow printers to match up to the upcoming digital production standards and to keep up in the years to come.
The Suite is made up of four different applications:
- Color Care Catch – serves to measure and control the color output and verify that the quality conforms to the standards defined by the bizhub PRESS system.
- Color Care Profiler – creates high-quality ICC printer profiles
- Color Care MatchPatch – to refine and to optimize ICC printer profiles
- Color Care Display – calibrates computer monitors and creates ICC monitor profiles
The Suite is intended to help printers to guarantee precise reproduction of colors throughout the run, and to follow quality processes the industry is working on - and also to improve the reliability of screen-based proofing.
