Color Management Symposium 2018 will also celebrate 25 years of the International Color Consortium (ICC)
Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA – 19 February, 2018 – BALDWIN Vision Systems announced that it will be one of the sponsors of the Fogra Color Management Symposium, held February 28 through March 1 at the Holiday Inn Munich City Centre in Munich, Germany. Advertisers, brand owners, suppliers, media, and print service providers will gather to hear leading experts (in German and English) on current trends and future solutions for color quality management. One of the highlights of the Symposium will be an evening celebrating the 25th anniversary of the International Color Consortium (ICC).
Two BALDWIN Vision Systems partners are among the experts presenting at the Symposium. Carlo Carnelli (ColorConsulting S.r.l.) will present “Packaging Printing with Expanded Color Gamut vs. Spot Inks: Opportunities and Challenges.” Elie Khoury (Alwan Color Expertise LLC) will present “Qualifying Multi-Color and HSI Printing Workflows: Standardization and Certification Requirements.”
According to Karl Fritchen, President of BALDWIN Vision Systems, “For those who can adopt complete, simplified workflow solutions, there is an enormous opportunity to increase press productivity, significantly reduce color make-ready and setup time, and reduce ink inventory and storage needs. We are excited to share our knowledge and technology to help solve brand owners’ very costly color quality and consistency issues.”
ColorConsulting Srl, a worldwide distributor of BALDWIN Vision Systems software, will be among the Symposium’s exhibitors and will feature three advancements for technology-driven workflows:
ColorTrack™ software facilitates fast, accurate, press-side correction of ink formulations. This complete “color expert in a box” delivers absolute color consistency.
DeltaCam™ provides affordable inline spectral color measurement using a true 31-channel spectrophotometer. The system spots problems early, reducing time and waste while confidently maintaining color throughout the roll—without the need to wait for a roll change to measure with a handheld device.
InkWeigh™ software modules allow you to eliminate trial and error by weighing and tracking ink corrections at the press for each client, each job. You can also optimize and reduce leftover storage, and ensure full traceability.
The Fogra Color Management Symposium is the first industry event sponsorship for BALDWIN Vision Systems—a new printing technology powerhouse resulting from Baldwin Technology Company, Inc. combining QuadTech, PC Industries, and Web Printing controls into a larger global entity.
