Canon launches Prismacolor Manager

Software Solutions

Canon UK has launched Prismacolor Manager, a cloud based, colour management software that enables commercial and in-house print companies to measure and validate colour across CMYK inkjet and toner printers over multiple locations. Using a simple, step by step process that carries out rigorous checks on quality and consistency, Prismacolor Manager verifies colour accuracy against recognised industry standards, such as those specified by Fogra and Idealliance, or user defined targets and tolerances, allowing operators to compare and precisely replicate printed colours.

Prismacolor Manager offers print companies an easy way to confirm and visualise the colour quality of digital prints against a chosen target by clearly structuring the digital colour measurement process, simplifying how results are displayed and analysed, and collecting colour measurement results from different printers. It validates and grades the results of the analysis against defined standards.

Through its intuitive interface, the software can be used by any operator, saving time and resources. Prismacolor Manager shows the operator simple, step by step animations of how to carry out colour measurements, from initialisation to generating reports. Reducing wasteful misprints, it helps minimise errors either by automatically submitting the measurement charts with the correct settings to a Prismasync or Fiery controller driven device or by displaying the correct colour quality settings on screen as instructions for the operator. During the measurement, illustrations provide real time feedback and checkmarks after correctly carrying out each step.

Jennifer Kolloczek, European planning, marketing and innovation senior director, production print at Canon Europe, commented: ‘Validating and optimising colour consistency is essential and is one of the most critical aspects of professional printing. Monitoring colour quality and ensuring that it is in line with industry standards can be very time consuming and complex and often requires a colour expert. For companies with more than one type of printer or printer supplier, the process of measuring and analysing colour consistency and quality across different devices can be even more challenging.

‘Prismacolor Manager provides a simple, printer agnostic tool to support these processes. And its easy to use user interface enables operators at all levels to carry out the validation.’

Prismacolor Manager will be available from May 2023.
