Download our brand new FREE Magic_Proof_&_Print_Control v1.5 application for controlling your CMYK Proofs and Prints, and much more:

Your free control application allows fast and easy control of all CMYK proofs by using UGRA/Fogra Media Wedge 2, Media Wedge 3, Colorsource ISO 12647-7, or IDEAlliance ISO12647-7 2009 or 2013 control bars.

The ΔE76 visual distance formula used by ISO12647-x standards is no longer used in any serious Industry, because ΔE76 does not measure accurately the perceived color distances by human vision. Magic_Proof_&_Print_Control allows you controlling your proofs according to ISO12647-7 and G7/IDEAlliance, but also it allows you much more reliable print and proofs quality controls by using ΔE2000 visual distance evaluation.

With using a simple 45/0° spectrophotometer such as Eye-One Pro, Eye-One Pro 2, Eye-One Pro 3 or EFI equivalents connected to free measurement software such as X-Rite MeasureTool, i1Profiler, or ColorPort.

Colorsource software solutions for Graphic Industries

Discover the innovative and high R.O.I. software we have developed for your business:

The software you need for optimizing your 2 to 10 colors print quality, including matching your CMYK prints to ISO12647-2 and G7/IDEAlliance (offset), ISO12647-3 (Newspaper), ISO12647-4 (Gravure printing), ISO12647-6 (Flexographic printing) and WAN-IFRA (Newspapers)

The software you need for optimizing your working methods and workflow through Design, repro and proof, for your 2 to 10 colors print productions.

MagicPress and MagicPrepress, which replace CMYK_100% and CMYK_Gravure applications since November 2020 with bringing even more impressive productivity and flexibility, can process the 10 nm band CGATS format spectral data measured by all 45/0° scanning spectrophotometers of the Market, such as X-Rite i1Pro family or equivalent EFI ES-x, Konica-Minolta, and Techkon.

Actually, you will experience that today, your print productivity and quality do not depend so much on the model of spectrophotometer you are using, but on the software applications that process your spectral measurements. And this is the job of Colorsource applications.

 MagicPress and MagicPrepress now work in Spanish, French and English.
