Foster City CA USA,
EFI has updated its Colorproof XF to directly handle N-color ICC profiles generated by GretagMacbeth’s Multicolor and Generic Output Profiler (GOP) technology from the recently released ProfileMaker 5. GOP-generated profiles allow printers to replace spot colors in an existing profile without generating new test charts to reprofile the press. The companies say the new multicolor profiles can now be used with EFI technology to consistently optimize all aspects of packaging production, including display-based soft proofing, contract quality inkjet proofing and high resolution output. Colorproof XF is a client/server based proofing solution.
