Techkon, a provider of colour measurement solutions for packaging and commercial printers, has released ChromaQA version 4.0, describing it as an advanced print colour quality solution that monitors the colour quality of jobs on press.

Designed to reduce the number of re-makes, the solution intends to detect colour problems early in the print production process, the company explains. Version 4.0, Techkon says, introduces a new, optional software module called the Automation Agent which allows a printer’s existing MIS/pre-press system to interface directly with the ChromaQA Cloud Server for an automated job creation workflow. Accessed via a software API or input “hot folder,” MIS systems can send colour and job information directly to ChromaQA, where jobs are then automatically created and sent to a printer’s job queue. This new functionality eliminates the need for customer service or prepress personnel to input this required data into ChromaQA, the company says.

Other new features in ChromaQA v4.0 include: Template-based workflow that allows operators to set up job templates for repeat work or when jobs are very similar to each other; a quick colour compare feature in the Chroma Standards module for comparing ink drawdowns to master colour standards; the Techkon ColorEnsure feature, which configures the SpectroDens to match the colour measurement settings specified in a job, has been expanded to also include an instrument calibration interval and reminder; and ChromaQA’s integrated ScoreCard system has also been expanded to include additional scoring metrics and weighting factors to cover a wider range of brand and printer needs.
