Xerox (Booth 1213) MatchAssure is a fast and accurate color-profiling solution that helps customers achieve greater consistency over a fleet of digital presses and across multiple locations. MatchAssure combines software loaded on a PC with an attached X-Rite i1iSis near-line spectrophotometer to produce a highly-accurate, ICC-compliant Destination Profile for each digital press.
New to the solution are expanded RGB and CMYK workflow features. For photos and images created in an RGB color space, MatchAssure features enhanced rendering to help deliver the most realistic, representational color with excellent shadow detail, contrast and smoothness. A GUI option lets customers adjust the look of the output based on their specific preferences. In addition to adjusting skies, skin tones, contrast and lightness, customers can now fine-tune saturation and darkness on reds and greens.
For CMYK workflows, a new color data monitoring feature uses an inline spectrophotometer, so customers can compare the status of all their presses to industry specifications, such as GRACoL or Fogra. This feature, available for select presses, helps maintain and correct color quality over time and in between creation of profiles. Color measurements from the in-line spectrophotometer are imported into MatchAssure to enable assessment of color performance on one or multiple presses.
