CGS - FaviconIs Your Colour in Casualty?

Sometimes colour reproduction just seems to go away with the fairies! It happens in even the best managed print, wide format, photographic and brand situations. Let's face it; colour management is a very involved science.

Maybe that Pantone® or special colour looked right on screen but you just can't match it in print. Even if you do, other colours seem to go out.

Your colour is in casualty and needs some intensive care! There is only one answer:

CGS - FaviconX GAMUT

Achieve accurate spot colours and vibrant images - easily and openly using CMYK+X

CGS Publishing Technologies International GmbH

Spot and custom colours are commonly used by brands to maintain and improve product loyalty. Spot colours are especially distinct but working with them requires some training and investment. You need to carry increased inventory, prices are pushed up, frequent colour changes, and successive wash-up and press downtime all add up. You lose flexibility in processing jobs processing which significantly impacts workflow and production.

This results in your printing press(es) not realising full production capabilities, costing you time and money. With CGS-ORIS X GAMUT, completely automated colour management workflow software you can achieve extended colour gamut printing on digital and conventional presses. Spot colours are accurately reproduced by utilising a standard fixed ink set of 7 or 8 colours (CMYK+X). Usually orange, green and violet are added to CMYK.

No more chaos and confusion with special ink mixes. The production process is smoother - no more press wash ups, changeover times are greatly reduced, and your ink inventory and waste is reduced. Overall X GAMUT really reduces costs for you the printer and for your customers.

The benefits of X GAMUT do end there with accurate reproduction of spot and brand colours. The extended software features and smart workflow tools in X GAMUT allows printers to achieve the full gamut of the press and ink set combination - photographic images can be printed with complete detail, as captured, without the need for special inks. Full gamut photo printing can be realised as well!
