PressView is a great tool to measure quality performance in digital print. The system still measures all aspects of color like spectral curve, CIE-Lab, dot gain a-like behavior, solid densities and spectral gray balance. Depending on the user, the results are displayed in a different way.
Machine operators are typically not extensively trained in spectral color analysis and color management, so we simply show them a traffic light that visualizes the overall quality of the print. When the light turns Green, production can continue because all values are calculated within tolerances. When the light becomes Yellow, the operator needs to re-calibrate the machine as some aspects of quality are out of spec. When the light turns Red, a color specialist needs to check the situation as there are many issues with the color performance. The exact behavior of the traffic light can be tweaked per situation by a system administrator.
QA managers and color specialists can review all aspects of color via the normal Gamut, Dot gain, Spot and Trending views without re-measuring the printed samples. All data is centrally stored in the database and presented in an optimized way for each user.
