After receiving the first-ever GRACoL certification for toner-based production presses, specifically for validating the proofing process on HP Indigo machines, CGS Publishing’s ORIS Press Matcher Pro has now achieved FOGRA Certification in conjunction with HP Indigo 7000 and 5500 presses. The third ingredient in this FograCert Validation Printing System Certification is the ORIS PearlDIGITAL specialty media.
While FOGRA itself is a colour management test suite used primarily in Europe, the accomplishment speaks to CGS’ commitment to developing standardized proofing systems for various commercial printing environments, particularly for those companies providing work outside of North America. “Now HP Indigo users around the world can be assured that their digital printing solution meets internationally recognized standards,” said Trevor Haworth, CEO of CGS Publishing Technologies, who adds the wizard-based, calibration process of ORIS Press Matcher Pro can be applied in “three simple steps.”
CGS Publishing’s GRACoL certification with toner-based presses was announced in mid-2009. GRACoL is the proofing certification that is often confuse with the non-certified G7 methodology for calibrating presses, which can then be employed within a GRACoL-enabled proofing environment.
