New and Affordable Annual E-PressControl Service Helps You Monitor and Maintain Repeatability

Keep Your Makeready times short and maintain G7 compliance with Ron Ellis Consulting's new E-PressControl Service Plan 

Being able to maintain a press calibration is as important as the initial calibration procedure itself. Today's successful printers are able to consistently print with great repeatability. A great part of this is the ability to measure color, understand what these measurements mean, and use this information to improve your daily production. While most printers understand the need to do this many lack the discipline and manpower to adequately monitor and correct these print conditions. Our new and affordable Annual Subscription service E-PressControl, provides you with continuous monitoring of your print conditions, along with both on-site and remote time for checkups and corrections as needed.

Changes to New Lighting and Color Matching to Proofs:  ISO 3664:2009

by Ron Ellis 

Viewing conditions are an important part of any print workflow. Recently there have been changes to the ISO standard for viewing conditions, as well as to the bulbs used in most print viewing booths. This bulletin gives a brief outline of the changes, possible issues, as well as ways to work with the new bulbs.

New Viewing Conditions

ISO 3664:2009 and Changes to Bulbs for Viewing Booths
In 2009 the ISO standard for viewing conditions was changed. The new standard includes many improvements, including being a closer match to real daylight, as well as being in closer agreement to CIE specifications for illuminant D50. The new standard was also changed to include UV content. All bulbs shipped in 2011 were modified to meet these specifications. If you order bulbs for most standard viewing conditions they now meet these new specifications. This means all new bulbs shipped right now contain UV content.
