ColorGATE Release New Colour Management And Workflow Solutions


ColorGATE’s new solutions and services include: Productionserver 20, Custom Create and Professional Colour Management Services.

Productionserver 20

ColorGATE Productionserver is the company’s core product. This RIP and colour management solution is available in a commercial version for large format printing and graphic arts, as well as in industrial versions for packaging, ceramics, décor, and textile printing. The industrial versions have exclusive features for their respective markets, such as ColorGATE’s Fingerprint Technology for ceramics and décor printing or an industry-leading white underbase creation for textile printing on dark substrates.

The new version 20 has been updated to Adobe’s PDF Print Engine 5, supports spectral spot colour definitions, and brings compatibility with PantoneLIVE. It features improved spot colour support for PANTONE and Freie Farbe spot colour libraries and includes additional settings for the Ink Saver feature to allow for even greater ink savings. Industrial users will also benefit from the new Retouch Module, allowing last-minute colour corrections before going to print while staying consistent with a colour-managed workflow, and from the Colour Correction Loop Module which is a prerequisite for iterative colour correction processes in décor production. ColorGATE’s products Proofgate and Filmgate have also been upgraded to version 20.

ColorGATE Custom Create

The new end-to-end workflow solution connects print buyers, print service providers and brand owners. The core of Custom Create is a powerful, Magento-based e-Commerce engine with advanced features such as product creators with advanced customisation and features and 3D product previews, as well as a pricing engine that can be individually configured and supports all leading payment methods.

Other modules that ColorGATE is going to make available over the next quarters include online marketing support, connectors to creative applications, job ticketing and fulfilment functions such as inventory and shipment management. The workflow solution integrates seamlessly with ColorGATE’s Productionserver. ColorGATE Custom Create targets the business community of digital decorators, print service providers, brand owners, designers, fulfillers as well as all kinds of print buyers with business or personal demands that are looking to monetise their brand equity by producing merchandise and other branded products.

Professional Colour Management Services

ColorGATE is now launching a Professional Colour Management Services offering where users of any printing and colour management technology can pick a standardised service from a menu. These can be booked directly with ColorGATE from July.

Thomas Kirschner, CEO and Founder of ColorGATE, said, ‘In the beginning of the current economic situation, we decided to focus our energy on growing as an organisation and on refining and finalising the solutions that we were originally planning to announce during drupa 2020. That way, we are now coming out of the starting blocks quickly in order to support our users with the technology that is needed right now for seizing the opportunities in the online economy, mass customisation, digital, decentralised production and back shoring. ColorGATE will continue to set the pace in the industry, combining real-life application know-how with expertise in software development and inkjet printing technology.’
