CGS has announced the upcoming
release of ORIS Color Tuner 5.2, which will
replace Oris Color Tuner Light. It includes
new and enhanced tools, such as the
FOGRA media wedge, updated Pantone
and HKS libraries, and pre-configured
color profiles for FOGRA, SWOP, and
other common industry specifications.
The package is intended for prepress
shops and print providers with moderate
proofing needs, using one or two inkjet
devices. MSRP: $1375 (in addition, users
must purchase a user license to drive
one or more printers, starting at $690 for
an A3++ printer like the Epson Stylus Pro
4800 or Canon W2200S). The higher-end
CGS Color Tuner Professional is still available
for $2750.

The company also has announced that
its Color Tuner 5.2 color proofing system
has received approval to be the first to
drive GretagMacbeth's new iO motorized
robotic arm and cradle for its Eye-One Pro
hand-held spectrophotometer. Color Tuner
5.2, in beta testing at press time, is scheduled
for release in late 2005. It will feature
an enhanced calibration wizard, improved
spot-color handling, multi-channel ICC profile
support, and an expanded GCR/UCR
user interface.
