Digital’s SpectroPocket for Android is the world’s first smartphone system for measuring individual color patches on a wide variety of substrates. SpectroPocket works with commercially available spectrophotometers. The measurement data can be displayed on mobile Android devices such as smartphones or tablets as spectral reflectance values, graphs, LAB, XYZ and RGB values, as well as densities. Color differences are visualized by SpectroPocket as Delta E or Delta H value.
The Phoenix will be introduced for the first time at drupa. It enables imaging of printing forms in screen and flexo printing, exposure of letterpress and offset printing plates, as well as plates for pad printing. The Phoenix uses LED UV technology incorporating two wavelengths (380 and 405 nanometres) allowing imaging to the respective emulsion surface and depth curing. The exposure head can be moved in X, Z and Y directions. This allows one to image different levels of screen frames. The Phoenix is built in two sizes – up to 600 x 800 mm and 800 x 1,000 mm.
