Ergosoft Introduces ColorGPS Profile-Creation Software

Big Picture

ColorGPS, a new ICC profile-generation suite for inkjet printers from Ergosoft, is a three-step solution for generating ICCstandard profiles for 4-, 6-, 8-, and 12- color output devices. Standing for "Gamut Profiling System," ColorGPS offers multiple levels of control from basic CMYK profiles to profiles characterizing 12 unique primary colors.

ColorGPS comes in five levels: Quick- Color, Photo, Publish, HiFi, and Spectra. ColorGPS QuickColor creates profiles for CMYK inkjets utilizing density readings already captured during the linearization and ink-limiting process"?making for easy color set-up. ColorGPS Photo is best used where CMYKcmk is the inkset and there are preset black generation curves for virtually continuous-tone image separations. ColorGPS Publisher allows for custom-generated black generation curves and can generate profiles for devices using orange and green inks. ColorGPS HiFi adds native 8-color support for devices capable of it. ColorGPS Spectra allows printers with 12 printheads to utilize each channel with an independent color while continuing to drive it natively without proprietary predefined separation tables.
