Seeing colours – Understanding colours

We deal with the preparation of print and media data including correct colour management. Other areas such as digital transformation, using artificial intelligence or 3D printing are also covered.

Research

The research projects deal with all aspects of the media production workflow. Colour – i.e. colour management – is the most important factor in image acquisition, data preparation, visual appraisal and both soft and hard copy proofing.

Consolidating Standardisation

Prepress technology   09/30/2015

Concept for the colour management based data preparation and reproduction.

Testing

We evaluate any type of print artefacts or the coordination between prepress and press. This includes prints that are erroneously referred to as contract proofs, but which are not colour-binding and can therefore lead to serious approval problems.

We also thoroughly check raster images as well as complex PDF files. Complications and complaints are usually caused by print data that has not been prepared correctly.

Another focus is on expert opinions that help print buyers to objectively assess their CI colours and help the relevant print service providers to implement these specifications.

Especially in data preparation there is not always the standard solution. We advise you individually, if data and print do not want to match (again).

Certification

Prerequisites for professional colour communication are perfect print data, colour-accurate proof prints and correct matching conditions. Do not leave it to chance, but rely on the FograCert test programme.
