Star Proof implemented ICC profile on top of ICS color
management technology to remain all advantages of ICS.
This feature allows users to import standard press ICC
profiles. In addition, the user has tools that allow the creation
of their own custom ICC profiles that produce great visual
results with low Delta E value. Users can view Lab and CMYK
value and apply flexible color adjustment, set maximum total
ink for printing and import spot color Lab value from spectrophotometer
You can save calibration time by using ICS’s auto-calibration
for automated reading of color patches with the X-Rite DTP-41
or EyeOne. ICS’s auto calibration takes the device measurements
and prepares a color curve with the appropriate gamut which
you can then fine tune for even more precise color matching.
Star Proof uses compressed 1-bit TIFF separations as source
data to create proofs so you can use Star Proof with almost
any PostScript/PDF RIP.
In areas of the proof where overlaps between C, M, Y and
Black are shown, Ink Tuner lets you adjust the color densities
of individual inks and control shadow areas and view actual
ink values in real time. Ink Tuner automatically manages the
process of adjusting ink levels to ensure ink hues are
unaffected which gives a robust system to control both color
and density in selected areas - a process not possible with
many ICC color management system.
Star Proof Remote Print Station gives print companies a cost effective
solution to providing customers with the capability
to print contract proofs locally on inkjet printers in their own
offices - shortening approval cycles and improving the service
to your customers. Using an ftp server running under Mac OS
X, Remote Print Station takes color corrected proofs over the
Internet from the print company’s master Star Proof station and
controls output to the local printer. Files can be compressed
for transmission and then decompressed at the remote print
With a Remote Print Station to control each printer, Star Proof
is also capable of proofing simultaneously on multiple printers
which may be sited locally or remotely - enhancing throughput
and increasing flexibility of workflow.
