Whether for color, content or layout, a proof is required for last minute client changes or final approvals. But with tight deadlines and long distances between partners, traditional proofing might not ensure efficient communication processes, making soft proofing an obvious alternative.
With the DIALOGUE Engine soft proofing server from Dalim Software (Booth 229), productivity is gained from an easy-to-use tool. As a Software Development Kit (SDK), DIALOGUE Engine can be integrated into any third-party DAM or custom-designed web page. Clients add soft proofing capabilities to a system they already feel comfortable with.??Given the right permissions, any document is instantly available for review in a standard web browser —without plug-ins.
With a virtually unlimited zoom, users can review or approve high-resolution documents without requiring fast Internet access. Comments and requests for corrections are stored on a centralized server. Measuring densities or checking available layers is only a mouse click away. In order to simulate a specific printing process or ink characteristics, opacity and order of separations can be easily altered.
With DIALOGUE Engine’s SWOP color certification, color renderings match printed end results. The server-based closed-loop calibration system makes quality assurance easy — even at remote sites. Just plug the colorimeter into the computer’s USB port.
