CGS Publishing Technologies International and Esko have signed an agreement to offer users an interface between Esko’s Colour Engine and CGS’s colour proofing products. The new option provides access to the Color Engine database of spot colour ink profiles directly from ORIS Color Tuner // Web, providing users with the colorimetric data of their existing Esko colour libraries to ensure accuracy and repeatability throughout the design, proofing and production process. The interface also provides ORIS users direct access to PantoneLIVE ™ from X-Rite/Pantone.
CGS has developed a comprehensive solution for proofing and prototyping of flexible packaging based on RolandDG’s VersaCAMM VS series, including special inks and media. ‘We are extremely pleased with this agreement as it addresses the needs of companies involved in production for major brands worldwide, saving them time and money and, most importantly, making colour even more consistent and predictable.
‘Users can now maintain critical spot colour descriptions in just one location making these immediately and consistently available in both high-end applications. The superior spot colour handling in award-winning ORIS Color Tuner // Web, combined with the colour descriptions in the Esko Color Engine, together provide unheard of accuracy,’ said Heiner Müller, Key Account Director Europe at CGS. ‘Access to PantoneLIVE ™ is added benefit in maintaining consistency across systems.’
