QMS (Quality Management Software) has now been integrated into six-color Sherpa proofing systems. Developed for contract proofing, QMS assures identical results from different Sherpas—a must for remote proofing applications.
In addition, Agfa has released its ColorTune Pro 4.0 color management software, which automatically compensates for differences in color ranges among input devices, a monitor, proofer and a printing press.
Because the system can remap the color space of a monitor and proofer to match the color gamut of a specific press, the software reportedly delivers end-to-end color management and accurate proofs.
An open house was also held to show the new Technical Learning Center, which has been moved into Agfa's Ridgefield Park headquarters. It features, among other products, a Galileo platesetter, Apogee workflow solutions, Avantra and Phoenix imagesetters, as well as various Sherpa proofing systems.
The imaging cylinder on the NexPress 2100 is just one of more than 40 operator replaceable components (OCRs), which can be replaced in a matter of seconds or minutes.
