A colour-consistent display on the monitor is no magic trick, even if there are many pitfalls in practice. We have developed the necessary criteria and tolerances in our research projects and have decisively initiated the corresponding ISO standards 12646 (Monitor Cert) and 14861 (Softproof System).
Fogra prepess certifications are based on globally established ISO standards. We often develop the basis of these standards ourselves through our work in research projects and expert opinions. Although this is a more time consuming and resource-intensive process compared to using self-estabhlished references, it places our work on a solid, internationally recognized foundation from which our members and customers benefit directly.
One good example is the contract proofing standard (ISO 12647), which has established itself worldwide as the tool for colour communication and has put an end to the diffuse situation with various manufacturer-specific processes and specifications. We offer two services: the qualification of a proofing system (Contract Proofing System) and the qualification for service providers (Contract Proof Creation). Furthermore, we certify your digital printing systems according to ISO 12647-8 (Valdition Print) or your soft proof system and proof paper – according to objective criteria and globally recognized standards that we helped to develop.
