Integrated Color Solutions
(ICS) has announced the addition of a new option to its Remote Director contract proofing system. The new feature, called Press Check, lets print buyers approval a press run remotely from anywhere in the world.
The system features an 800 dot per inch (DPI) optical resolution scanner that digitizes press sheets up to 27 by 38 inches in less than four minutes. The printer can adjust the press output to the control proof show on a Remote Director-driven system monitor in a special viewing booth.
Once a match is achieved, Press Check is used for remote viewing. The system then automatically transmits the scans over the Internet to a color-calibrated system on the approver’s end. Once the press sheet is approved, the Remote Director system provides secure digital sign-off capabilities.
Each user can utilize resolution and zoom-in functions to check screening, registration, dot structure and traps at magnifications up to 1500 percent.
The new option is priced at US$74,999 and is available directly from ICS. The system requires a Power Mac G4 running Mac OS X v10.2, a high-quality display and spectrophotometer.
