See also: Color servers that transform printing engines into powerful networked printers, introduces its next generation G Series software, with significant new innovations, connecting to the Xerox DocuColor 12 copier/printer. The new G620 is available for all G610 color servers.
New unique color correction and calibration features available in the Splash G620 are CopyCal, Color Tuner, and ColorCal Gray Calibration. CopyCal creates profiles to simulate output from other print engines. Companies can match the output from other existing copier brands and models. Print for pay service providers can improve customer satisfaction and match their customers' desktop color printer. Color Tuner changes overall or individual colors in a single page or entire document at the server. This feature is extremely simple and eliminates the need for making color changes in the original software application. ColorCal Gray Calibration locks in the gray balance of individual color copiers for a more neutral gray, more consistent color between copiers, and better press simulation.
New production printing features include 2-up imposition; RIP across Job Boundaries, allowing files to be printed and processed simultaneously; Dynamic Image Enhancement See image editing. , which improves the quality of documents that include low resolution images; Mirror Image, reversing the image of a printed page; and Rotate Pages, which correctly orients landscape presentations. Another new productivity feature in the G620 is full support of the high-cap feeder and finishing options of the DocuColor 12.
Splash has also added many new prepress features that facilitate digital proofing. Features include direct printing of TIFF-IT P1 and DCS (1) See also DSC.
