KODAK PressProof Software Brings Monitor Proofing’s Color Accuracy
and Time Savings into the Pressroom
ROCHESTER, N.Y. February 6 - New KODAK PressProof software extends the benefits of monitor proofing to
PressProof software employs SWOP certified KODAK MATCHPRINT Virtual Proofing technology to provide
accurate and consistent color guidance by displaying a proof for viewing on qualified LCD monitors. PressProof
software allows press operators to view the same color accurate proof viewed by agencies, designers, prepress
professionals, publishers, and others involved in the creative and print production processes.
PressProof software is designed specifically for the pressroom. Its fast and intuitive user interface allows operators
to easily select and display the appropriate surface for comparison with press samples. PressProof software
features such as caching and read-ahead ensure that proofs are readily available.
"PressProof software allows commercial and publication printers to offer their customers a complete monitor
proofing workflow, spanning content creation to press-side proofs on monitors, which makes it easy and efficient
to ensure color accuracy, make revisions, expedite approvals and meet tight deadlines," said Stan Coleman,
General Manager, Unified Workflow, Kodak’s Graphic Communications Group. "By serving as an integral part
of Kodak’s unified workflow, PressProof software can help print providers further streamline operations."
PressProof software integrates with the KODAK PRINERGY workflow system, eliminating the need to manage
separate proofing and prepress production. It can also operate as an extension of KODAK InSite software,
which enables Internet-based communication among all participants in the print content and production process.
PressProof software also functions as a standalone configuration for use with KODAK PRINERGY Evo, KODAK
BRISQUE or other third party workflows.
PressProof software can operate on either the EIZO COLOREDGE 21" or the APPLE Cinema Display LCD monitors.
