CGS Publishing Technologies International LLC has announced that its Adobe Acrobat-based soft proofing workflow has been approved for advertisers and publishers of web-printed publications. With solid approvals by the review committee, CGS' interactive soft proofing system, ORIS Soft Proof, was granted SWOP certification for the 23" Apple Cinema and the Eizo ColorEdge CG2200 displays.
The review committee commented favorably on the color quality and gray balance of the ORIS system, which produces color-accurate PRD/X-3 files and distributes them automatically. "As print production becomes increasingly global, there is a real need for uniform color in every phase of the process," said Lida Jalali Marschke, co-founder of the Color Management Group consortium. "Because SWOP is so commonly used in desktop applications, like Adobe Photoshop and Acrobat, SWOP certification of ORIS Soft Proof is an important step in that direction. Users can now benefit from a truly integrated soft proof / hard copy proof environment -- both of which can meet SWOP requirements."
