Ink preset zone generator
InkCenter is a ink zone calculator with interfaces to industry standard press control systems. Copies of final plate bitmap files (1-bit TIFF) are analyzed according to configuration settings and CIP3 or native format ink zone files are generated and sent to the press control system.
The Enterprise version of InkCenter offers visualization of sheets using soft-proof clients in the press-room. The incoming bitmap separations will be combined to color and an ICC-profile or color transfer function will be applied to the images to emulate the colors of the printed result.
