DFE-based G7 calibration, verification and profiling for digital cut sheet presses


Fiery Color Profiler Suite is the only integrated product on the market that calculates G7 correction curves and writes them directly into a calibration set on a Fiery DFE, making the G7 calibration process faster, easier, and less error prone. The G7 workflow validates the results of the G7 calibration, then guides the user through creating an ICC output profile optimized to work with the G7 calibration. This means that higher levels of G7 compliance, including G7 Targeted and G7 Colorspace, can be achieved with a single, easy-to-use software product.

The Fiery Color Profiler Suite calibration workflow creates a traditional calibration set that targets G7 compliance. The result is a re-calibration procedure that is twice as fast compared to competing systems because a traditional Fiery calibration patch target can be used with fewer patches. Reducing the time spent calibrating the digital print system on a daily or per-shift basis means better productivity and profitability for the printing company.

“EFI Fiery Color Profiler Suite makes it easy for even novice users of color management tools for digital printing systems to successfully calibrate, verify G7 grayscale compliance, and profile Fiery driven print systems to ensure that output more closely matches industry references such as GRACoL 2013 and SWOP 2013 datasets, not only for neutral grays but also for saturated colors,” said John Henze, EFI’s vice president of Fiery marketing. “This means better quality work that print shop customers will notice. We are pleased to bring this industry-leading breakthrough in DFE color management to the Fiery ecosystem.”

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
