Color comparison measurement

  • Comparison measurement of a printed color with the softproof reference color; no special color patches are required
  • Graphical display of the measurement results
  • The results will also be shown as numerical values (the deviation will be given according to the deltaE76 and deltaE94 formula)

individual client layouts

Individual Client-Layout
Client as Softproof workstation

The individual elements of the client GUI can be adjusted as needed. You can resize, position or show and hide them. Changes can be saved as a new "client-layout".

Dual monitors are also supported. Thus, for example the softproof page can be displayed on a second monitor in portrait mode.
