ChromaChecker – 5 steps to Color Conformance

Print Manufacturing Brand & Print Buyers Color Manufacturing Design & Photography
Control all variables affecting production process. Balancing production with the required production standards to meet customer expectations. Synchronizing quality control process across supply chain ensuring highest quality results to achieve the goal Ensuring the color and appearance meet expectations when rendering color on textiles, plastics, paint, metal, liquids, and more. Sophisticated but easy to use color tools that benefit every designer and photographer.

 

 

ChromaChecker allows you to achieve and maintain the required level of color reproduction and track it over time – is the industry's first Color Conformance Platform which enables a printer to establish their own production standard that meet customer expectations. It is compatible with virtually all software that printers use for proofs and presses, so operators don’t have to change the way they work.

 

 


 

 

ChromaChecker is officially an Idealliance G7® Certified System.

If you need your print facilities to get qualified as G7® Master Printer, ChromaChecker can do it!

G7® Calibration is just one of more than fifteen tools available in your favorite Cloud-based Print Quality System.

 

 


 

 

ChromaChecker guides the user to define desired expectations and then determines if the printers can deliver that level of color conformance, and if not, adjusts the printer to improve results.

 

 

 

Provides a unique method of assessing customer Production Standard requirements
and communicates to the entire organization:

 

If the print device's E-Factor is less than or equal to expectations – print is salable

 

If the print device's E-Factor is greater than expectations – print is waste

 

 

 
  E-Factor is based on delta E (∆E 00) metrics but for communicating visual differences related to two pages compared to one another. When comparing two color samples the industry uses ∆E formula. This approach is only good for single color comparisons. When comparing pictures or pages with thousands of colors (think of each dot/pixel in a picture being a different color), ∆E metric doesn't work. But a derivative of ∆E called CRF at 95th percentile does work extremely well when comparing hundreds or thousands of colors. This formula eliminates 5% of highest ∆Es ensuring that 95% of the colors between the images are within the ∆E at the 95th percentile. This metric, called E-Factor, co-relates directly with the relative difference when using ∆E for single color comparisons, but applies to visual difference between two pages or images.
