Carlsbad, CA, March 19, 2013– Remote Director, the leader in soft proofing solutions announces the release of Remote Director 5.0.
Renowned in the industry for color expertise – and not just in the pressroom – the team at Remote Director has added a host of new features for tracking the status of all projects throughout the workflow.
From Think to Ink
Starting with photography and the creative process through to a proof for the pressmen, Remote Director 5.0 is designed to streamline production by eliminating rounds of hard copy proofing and the associated shipping and handling costs. The user interface has been simplified and can be adapted for each viewer, providing only the tools they need to perform their assigned tasks.
Customized for Your Client
To assure client security, Remote Director 5.0 allows printers to segment proofing for each customer, including adding specific branding to the interface. Further customization is available for user definable roles, which can be selected from more than 35 different permissions and project filters that can be built and shared.
Beyond ICC
In addition to supporting ICC profiles, Remote Director 5.0 continues to improve the spectral blending engine for up to 24 color channels. This engine can work with any spot color library to provide accurate blends between spot colors and with the ICC profile. Remote Director 5.0 is compatible with 64-bit Safari, Firefox and Internet Explorer and is now commercially available.

Eizo ColorEdge CG277 and CX271

Eizo ColorEdge CG277 and CX271

Hakusan, Japan, February 26, 2014 – EIZO Corporation (TSE: 6737) today released the 27-inch ColorEdge CG277 and CX271 color management monitors.

ColorEdge CG277 / CX271The ColorEdge CG277 is targeted at professionals in digital photography, prepress, video editing, post production, and other fields that require the most predictable color in their workflow. It features a sensor that is housed inside the monitor and swings up onto the screen for self-calibration. The ColorEdge CX271 is ideal for professionals and prosumers in photography and design. It houses an internal correction sensor that maintains the calibration results after the monitor has been calibrated with an external sensor.

The ColorEdge CG277 and CX271 include the advanced features of previous 27-inch ColorEdge monitors while offering a new wide-gamut IPS (in-plane switching) panel that reproduces 99% of the Adobe RGB color space. In addition, dark tones retain their depth, even when the screen is viewed at an angle in a dimly lit photographic or post production studio. An LED backlight reduces power consumption by 40% and utilizes brightness modulation technology to minimize flickering and eye fatigue.

During the development of the ColorEdge CG277, photographer Carl De Keyzer of Magnum Photos, tested the monitor and commented, “The calibration system is astonishing – for the first time I can calibrate my screen without professional help. The colors are entirely in line with what comes out of my large printers, so no guessing anymore; just true what you see is what you get.”

For brightness and color uniformity, EIZO uses its own Digital Uniformity Equalizer (DUE) technology. DUE ensures a Delta-E difference of three or less across the screen. It also counterbalances the influences that a fluctuating ambient temperature may have on color temperature and brightness.

EIZO’s proprietary ColorNavigator calibration software comes bundled with both monitors. ColorNavigator is used for setting the target values for brightness, gamma, and white point, and generating an ICC profile. ColorNavigator has a scheduling function that activates the self-calibration and self-correction functions of the ColorEdge CG277 and CX271 respectively. The software offers several advanced functions such as emulating the color characteristics of smart phones, tablets, and other devices, and profile validation for verifying calibration results.

For video editing and post production, the ColorEdge CG277 has a 3D LUT (look-up table) that adjusts color individually on an RGB cubic table. With ColorNavigator software’s emulation function, the 3D LUT applies a film look to the image so creators can preview how the image will be seen by their audience. The ColorEdge CG277 comes with several media-standard preset color modes: Rec709, EBU, SMPTE-C, and DCI. It also accepts 4K x 2K signals and downscales them to its native resolution of 2560 x 1440.

The ColorEdge CG277 is recognized by Fogra as a Class A FograCert Softproof Monitor. Using the CG277 in a FograCert Softproofing System ensures designers, print specifiers, and print producers can rely on the soft proof for predictable and consistent results.
