Each year the Color Management Conference concentrates on the question “But will my color match?” and this year adds education and networking tracks for brand managers, agency executives, designers and marketing professionals. Color and brand consistency is more important than ever and the CGS booth will highlight two revolutionary products alongside its ORIS suite of color management products to help manage the madness. ORIS Lynx represents the cloud-based color management solution, and for the packaging industry IC3D Suite from Creative Edge Software is the world’s first Real-Time 3D packaging visualization, ideation and design application in one product.
Earlier this year at Print13 in Chicago, IL both solutions were recognized; ORIS Lynx received the coveted 2013 InterTech Technology Award from the Printing Industries of America, and IC3D Suite was named a Must See ‘Ems award recipient. “Companies seeking new ways to control costs—and new revenue opportunities—now have two tools ready to help them along the way,” said CEO Trevor Haworth. “We’re excited about the response to ORIS Lynx and IC3D Suite after their launches this fall, and continue to see new ways they help reduce the stress of daily operations.”
ORIS Lynx – Color Management in the Cloud
The latest edition to CGS’ color management family—ORIS Lynx—is the only cloud-based color management solution to generate both device link and ICC profiles to control the quality and consistency of CMYK or RGB output on a wide range of devices. The unique system uses the core technology found in ORIS Color Tuner and ORIS Press Matcher via a secure Internet client/server connection for access anywhere, anytime in the world. ORIS Lynx’s SaaS-based solution makes it easier for small and medium sized printers to achieve effective color control within their processes. Patented color management algorithms accurately reproduce colors and the relationship between the four printing inks is carefully calculated producing an outstanding neutral grey balance and overall reduction in the amount of toner or ink used.
IC3D Suite – Inspiring 3D Creativity for Packaging Designers
IC3D Suite is the first application to combine multiple packaging disciplines and processes into a single product. The technology, which beautifully simplifies 3D, uses a patented Auto Mesh Mapping process allowing labels and artwork to be placed accurately on complex packaging models in Real Time—as opposed to tedious UVW mapping of texture coordinates by a third party specialist. IC3D Suite also provides simple importing and creation of sophisticated materials like refracting glass, metallic effects, holographics or even lenticular effects. “IC3D Suite is not just for packaging designers and brand owners, but for packaging printers and even general printers looking to expand their services,” Haworth said. “Before now, the packaging creation process was lengthy and expensive. IC3D changes that formula completely and truly needs to be seen to fully understand how versatile it is.”
ORIS Lynx and IC3D Suite (plus the entire ORIS product line) will be shown at the Color Management Conference in the CGS booth, December 7-10, 2013.
