Roland Academy’s December VersaWorks Webinar Series Focuses
on PANTONE Spot Color Management
Roland Academy, the training and education division of Roland DGA Corp., has announced a new two-part Tips & Tricks webinar series to be held
Dec. 11th and 18th, discussing valuable new features in the company’s VersaWorks RIP software.
The webinar series will take an in-depth look at brand new VersaWorks features, starting with an overview of the software’s new spot color
replacement feature Dec. 11th, and followed by a discussion of the new built-in PANTONE libraries Dec. 18th.
With the new spot color replacement feature, users can quickly and easily replace any defined spot color from a design file with another spot color from
one of VersaWorks’ spot color libraries – all without accessing the source file. With VersaWorks, users have access to 16 spot color libraries total,
including six new PANTONE libraries and the Roland Color System, Roland’s own spot color matching solution featuring more than 1,500 traditional
and metallic hues.
The new PANTONE libraries allow users to quickly and easily convert any PANTONE color from a design file to a CMYK value that can be reproduced
on any Roland inkjet device. This simplified workflow significantly reduces the amount of time required for color matching and enables quick output of
specific colors when working with properly profiled media.
“Spot color management features with this level of functionality are typically found only in the industry’s most advanced and expensive RIP
software,” said Dana Curtis, product manager for Roland DGA Corp. “We are proud to offer these new tools and other powerful VersaWorks
features to our digital printing customers free of charge, helping them improve their productivity, explore new design options, and maximize their
