SWOP Certifies Onyx Graphics Workflow Software
The Specifications for Web Offset Publications Inc. (SWOP) recently granted SWOP certification to two workflow software packages developed by Onyx Graphics.
SWOP, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of publication printing by establishing color printing specifications for use by advertising agencies, publishers, printers and service bureaus, bestowed the certification on the company's Onyx ProductionHouse and Onyx PosterShop workflow packages.
"Onyx Graphics products have always offered the highest level of color accuracy and consistency through our ICC-compliant media profiles and Media Manager and Profile Generator modules," says Dean Derhak, product manager for Onyx Graphics. "This certification gives our customers the added confidence that their Onyx Workflow Software is capable of producing prints that meet the SWOP standard used throughout the printing industry."
To obtain SWOP certification for quantitative conformance, manufacturers submit a SWOP application data sheet and representative proofs, and SWOP either accepts or rejects the proofs. Onyx Graphics, a division of Océ Display Graphics Systems Inc., develops and markets commercial printing software and solutions for the digital color-printing marketplace.
