Chicago-Area Printer to Install Matchprint Virtual
ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- Classic Color, a commercial printer in Broadview, Ill., will install Kodak Matchprint Virtual for InSite and Matchprint Virtual PressProof contract-quality virtual proofing software to extend color process control throughout the workflow.
Classic Color will use the proofing system upstream for content creation and
production approvals, and downstream for press-side proofing. The installation will offer Classic Color customers collaborative proofing,
annotation and color approval throughout the production process from anywhere in the world.
Matchprint Virtual for InSite proofing software allows print buyers to
view proofs on calibrated monitors at different locations with consistent and accurate color. The on-screen color will also match a hard-copy proof when viewed under the controlled lighting conditions of a light booth. Unlike other remote proofing systems, Matchprint Virtual for InSite software operates directly on production files. There is no need to copy or convert files, and no additional workflow steps are required.
Matchprint Virtual for InSite software reduces job-cycle time by
providing consistent color management across multimonitor system
configurations, ensuring effective real-time collaboration with
accurate color viewing, saving on the cost of making and shipping
Matchprint Virtual PressProof software is Kodak's press-side monitor
proofing solution. Using SWOP-certified Matchprint Virtual Proofing
technology software, PressProof enables the same color-accurate proofs
viewed by agencies, designers and prepress to be viewed during the
print run. This enables easier color matching and faster make-readies.
Matchprint Virtual PressProof software uses standardized proofs and
consistent color management, enabling printers to decrease their cost
of making and shipping multiple proofs.
"Agencies, designers and corporate customers have always counted on
Classic Color to creatively put technology to work on their projects
and to give them a competitive edge," says Raymond Bell, president,
Classic Color. "We've always delivered a quality product using the
latest innovations in our field. Contract quality virtual proofing is
