• All data is stored centrally--and controlled--on a printer's client-server platform and is completely accessible by authorized users, from anywhere in the world
• Data supporting any standard can be collected from all popular measurement devices from a wide variety of vendors, allowing print providers to use the measurement tools they prefer. The easy-to-use MeasureColor software also supports traditional metrics, such as density, grey balance, ink trap, etc.
"Industry performance shows that a particular press run fluctuates over production, necessitating measurements to verify conformance to customer specifications. Automating the process not only eliminates errors, but also allows a press operator to observe any deviations and make adjustments during a printing run--something that can't be done with manual data delivery systems," notes Dan Uress, Chief Technology Officer at MeasureColor Inc. "CMG and the Schawk's EPQ Solution have helped MeasureColor extend our reach in U.S. and across North America. CMG's representatives in the U.S., and globally, are expert color management specialists who truly appreciate our technology."
The customized version of MeasureColor designed to Schawk's print quality standards, enables print providers to use one application to communicate directly with the measurement instrument, while also permitting operators to enter visual, non-measurable data, such as registration, opacity, and defects related to production and prepress. The Schawk EPQ solution gives print providers the flexibility to use virtually any data collection system. Using MeasureColor takes only 90 seconds, allowing print providers the opportunity to assess data quickly and make adjustments to the press while the job is still running rather than reviewing data, "after the fact."
