ColorGate distributes measuring devices and accessories for colour management to create colour profiles for digital imaging, pre-press and digital printing. They perfectly complement the Productionserver software solutions for: digital packaging, decorative surface production, digital textile printing, digital container decoration, and digital metal decoration.
Once the required colour profiles have been created, they remain stored in the software and ensure the best possible colour transformation of the print jobs – from the source format to the printing system´s colour space. Colour variations can be detected with the suitable measuring technology and corrected by recalibration – even before they become visible to the human eye.
A specialised measurement device for example, is the sphere spectrophotometer. Sphere spectrophotometers can provide reflectance measurements in two ways: specular included (SPIN) and specular excluded (SPEX). The specular port can be opened and closed during the measurement to include or exclude specular reflection like gloss. It can be used to measure transparent and translucent samples, fluorescent samples, colour and appearance separately.
