Reproducible results and compliance with standards are an essential part of high-quality print products. Precise reproduction of logos and color areas is extremely important to manufacturers of brand products, for example. Prinect Image Control is therefore also able to control homogeneous image elements in the print control strip and also directly in the print image. The software automatically recognizes controllable solid areas from the prepress PPF data. What's more, Prinect Image Control is the only system on the market to support direct control of CMYK images additionally. At the touch of a button, the ok-sheet is stored as a reference for the production run. Even if the colors in the print control strip match the standard, the printed image may differ from the original approved by the customer if the image is controlled only by print control strips. Should tone values in the image areas fluctuate during the production run, the color changes are automatically recognized by Prinect Image Control and adjusted to the ok sheet as exact as possible. This direct image control is particularly useful for commercial jobs, for work and turn jobs in one form, repeat jobs, and in packaging printing, when colors, logos or headlines must be kept consistent.
