  CC Connect Version 1.0

  

  

 

Print Inspector

Receive real-time reports on how your output devices are manufacturing color (conformance and process control reports) with support for CMYK, Hi-Fi, ECG, Spots, G7 conformance details and much more. Print Inspector is the flagship Inspector inside the ChromaChecker solution – CC Connect makes it more powerful. Ink density information may help an operator make an instant correction. Dual reporting: E-Factor and Pass/Fail process control examination based on customizable tolerances lift printing company to a higher level of management with production salability monitoring. 

 

Assign the Device

Allows operators to log on as an operator for any of the devices that they are responsible for. This feature helps to recognize who is operating the printing device, to better report how each operator is performing related to making the device adhere to desired color standards.

 

Event Manager 

Log maintenance events that operator performs on a device – events are dependent on print technology, i.e. inkjet event includes head cleaning, the sheetfed press includes cleaning cyan blanket. Now an operator can report problems in a very easy way. All events will be presented on a timeline.

 

My Devices

See the structure of tracks with detailed technical specification and check any of the last 50 measurements made for the given output device.

Operators and Managers can be configured to only see the printers that they are responsible for, no more. ChromaChecker™ Connect creates a remote picture of your Print Production. This can also be configured to show customers specific printing conditions that they are very interested in. 

 


 

How to?

In order to take advantage of ChromaChecker Color Conformance Platform, an active subscription is required. The user may collect production data in various ways:

Most open architecture automatic measurements systems can be integrated with ChromaChecker Cloud using our ChromaChecker Uploader App (Windows or Mac OS). A lot of systems like X-Rite IntelliTrax, Techkon SpectraDrive with Expresso, Heidelberg Image Control with Quality Monitor, EFI Fiery XF, Measure Color, GMG Proofing, Oris CGS Proofing, Quad Tech SpectralCam, X-Rite Color Cert, Spot On, PrintFlow, Press Sign, and much more can work this way.

95% of the install base of common instruments can be driven directly by ChromaChecker Capture App (Windows or Mac OS) - real-time reporting and numerous unique features make this solution the easiest method for operators of any skill level to measure and report color conformance.

Over ten manufacturers have integrated the ChromaChecker API and offer factory integration with ChromaChecker Cloud - e.g. HP Indigo with Color Beat.
The user may manually upload files from any 3rd party application that support one of many data exchange formats (CGATS, XML, CxF, SVF, It8, …) or create hot folders (using CC Uploader)

PPrint Inspector

Spot Color Wildcards add to any Colorbar

Have one color bar that allows for assessing process color only or up to any combination of up to four brand/spot

HColor Inspector

Visualize Spot Color Tolerance Values

Delta E is not sufficient as the only tolerance criteria to define brand/spot color conformance due to the non-linearity of colors in the LAB color space

CCapture

Multi-page charts for CC Capture (i1iO)

Instruments like X-Rite i1iO have some limitation caused by limited scanning area. IT-8 or TC-1617 are typical examples where single page is too small, and the only way is split task into two or more pages. Now Capture is supporting Scanning templates where each page is defined separately - next joined into multipage measurement task.

CC Capture Operator Log in via RFID

If Employees have bar codes, or RFID cards, they can use either of these devices to automatically log into CC Capture (ver. 1.1. is required). In multi-user mode RFID card can switch all setting for another operator in three seconds including sending all new parameters to the Instrument.
