MELVILLE, N.Y., September 12, 2017 - Canon Solutions America, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc., today announces the rollout of the new imagePRESS 2017 print target for the COLORlynx Color Management Suite. This new print target leverages the recently received G7 Certified System designation from the International Digital Enterprise Alliance (Idealliance) for COLORlynx, to allow imagePRESS customers to benefit from G7 compliance with a simple to use, automated solution that is included with every eligible imagePRESS digital press sold by Canon Solutions America. The new target will be demonstrated live at PRINT 17 in the CGS Publishing Technologies International GmbH booth (# 631) September 10-14, 2017.
The imagePRESS 2017 print target leverages the recently received G7 Certified System designation from Idealliance for COLORlynx. The target is designed to help imagePRESS customers hit the current industry standard CRPC6 print condition within industry standard tolerances. The new target is included with all active COLORlynx Profiler COLORlynx Standard and subscriptions. COLORlynx Standard provides an easy to use, automated system that will deliver consistent repeatable output using this new print target. COLORlynx Profiler adds the ability to use this new target as well as any of over 40 industry standard targets, all with just a few clicks of a mouse and a spectrophotometer.
Developed in collaboration with CGS Publishing Technologies International, the COLORlynx Color Management Suite includes COLORlynx Standard and COLORlynx Profiler. Canon Solutions America is proud to include COLORlynx Standard with every new Canon imagePRESS C10000VP/C8000VP and Canon imagePRESS C850/C750 with PRISMAsync or Fiery® controllers. COLORlynx Standard provides a simplified, easy to use interface and automated, wizard-driven workflow for creating and verifying color conformance. COLORlynx Profiler is available to any Canon Solutions America imagePRESS customer and, compared to COLORlynx Standard, provides a full featured interface for specific control of color management and the same automated, wizard-driven workflow for creating and verifying color conformance.
COLORlynx Standard helps enable the average end user to achieve the highest level of G7 compliance for quality and color consistency. Because it is easy to use, its helps customers get their digital presses up to color in a short period of time, generating revenue potential with more print time per day. Compared to COLORlynx Standard, COLORlynx Profiler uses the same methodology, and supports a wider range of print targets and additional color settings, including the ability for customers to use house targets in their workflow. The COLORlynx Color Management Suite allows any Canon Solutions America imagePRESS customer to quickly and consistently enjoy the benefits of G7 in their workflow, regardless of their choice in printing equipment.
"Since the launch of the G7 methodology by Idealliance in 2006, CGS has created innovations to build G7 into the print workflow. Now with the imagePRESS 2017 print target available in COLORlynx, Canon Solutions America customers have a simple process to help achieve G7 Colorspace compliant output quickly and consistently," commented Cory Sawatzki, Director of Digital Printing Technology at CGS Publishing Technologies International, LLC. “By leveraging the G7 System Certification with a new and updated imagePRESS print target, CGS has achieved a further significant milestone in Canon Solutions America’s quest to keep pushing the boundaries of quality assurance for their customers. The new target ensures consistent and seamlessly repeatable color, day after day. We are excited to be able to demonstrate the new imagePRESS 2017 target on a live Canon imagePRESS digital press in our booth (#631) at PRINT 17. ”
