COLORSOURCE engineering

Reliable information and color quality software solutions for Print Industries.

Color engineering services and special application software

12 years of services to all Industries who want in depth mastering of their colors reproduction by all digital and traditional means, for enjoying much better quality and productivity with much lower costs:

Our services of audit, technical support and engineering allow you mastering the most advanced concepts of color science and apply them for solving all your color reproduction problems.

And not only in Graphic Industries: Colorsource have been participating in the last 12 years to numerous engineering projects that include developing and implementing advanced color calibration algorithms that outperform standard market software tools or usefully supplement them, for finalizing new standard industrial products (e.g., Automotive industries, packaging, microbiology). For example:

Practical implementation of advanced color appearance models,

Optimizing color reproduction by CAD-CAM software using spectral ray-tracing,

Design of multispectral image sensors, spectral scanners, and digital processing algorithms optimized for fast computing of spectral and colorimetric images and measurements,

Optimizing multispectral reflection and transmission image acquisition on N bands. Optimizing the choice of bands depending on requested costs and remote color measurement accuracy,

Optimizing RGB or else image acquisition devices and attached image processing software for optimizing their color reproduction accuracy,

Optimizing fast color inkjet printers for packaging applications,

Optimizing on-press soft proofing on RGB monitors for print industries.

Standard application software tools for Print Houses: For offset, rotogravure and flexo printers, wanting to use the most productive and inexpensive spectrophotometers for:

Quality control of color proofs, and traditional, and digital prints,

control of CMYK inks and special inks formulation,

Fast calibration of CMYK printing presses to match ISO12647 2-3-4-6 or G7/IDEAlliance or IFRA color standards,

Fast calibration of polychrome printing presses, with one to ten inks, and with or without CMYK process base.

Adaptation of Colorsource standard software to specific needs,

Total re-engineering of rotogravure, offset, and flexographic packaging manufacturing processes, from creative design to polychrome printing with a wide color gamut, so as to avoid the use of spot colors (no more problems storing inks and recycling ink returns), and so as to obtain more reliable and predictable final colors on hard and soft color proofs.

Colorsource vocational trainings:

Allow you much better use of all your existing H/W and S/W production tools, and allow you much better design and investment choices.

Printed Communication Industries have been deeply impacted by the 2008 US banksters crisis. But nearly ALL Graphic Arts Companies that understood their Human Capital is much more important than their Machines Capital are performing well through this crisis.

But we still find today a vast majority of Print Houses have very limited basic knowledge not only of Color Science, but also of their traditional hardware and software production tools: The production tools user's guides are often just ignored, and moreover these user's guides can be of no use when a lot of basic knowledge and understanding of digital imaging is missing.

Many Print Houses and Repro Houses need vocational training including the acquisition of the basic principles. Multiplying new hardware or marketing investments will be of very little help if the basic understanding is missing.
