ColorLogic Announces the Release of ZePrA 9
Remote capabilities and two new automated wizards keep ZePrA ahead in the industry
26 May 2021
RHEINE, GERMANY — ColorLogic GmbH releases ZePrA 9, the smart color server that optimizes and automates printing data with their biggest upgrade release to date. Most noteworthy are the Spot Color Iteration Wizard and the DeviceLink Iteration Wizard. The innovative Spot Color Iteration Wizard makes best-in-class spot color rendering easy and fun. With only a few steps the already great spot color rendering of ZePrA can be improved and the deltaE minimized on your digital printers. For accurate proofing and for better production printing, the new DeviceLink Iteration Wizard guides you through the important and complex steps to improve the quality of the color conversion for a perfect color match.
ZePrA 9 brings more new and exciting features. The Adobe Photoshop extension, Push-2-ZePrA, now has added client-server capabilities. This improved version allows multiple users within one organization to use the best color conversion of images by applying ZePrA’s DeviceLink and spot color conversion functionalities right within Photoshop. Single or multiuser licenses are available. Also the Spot Color Report checks the spot color conversion and color rendering of a production file before actually converting and printing and suggests the best fitting configuration.
ZePrA 9 has improved and expanded on the features used every day. Easier to understand prompts and more functionalities have been added to the conversion options of Images and Vectors with added options for SmartLink and processing of PDF/X files. Gradation curves have been improved and can now be applied to Images or Vectors or both. A late Black Start option for spot color conversions and the most recent Callas pdfToolbox 12 / Adobe PDF engine to be used for flattening of PDF files are just some of the many upgraded features.
“This is our biggest software upgrade release yet,” states Thorsten Braun, CTO of ColorLogic. “Automation is our main mission so we added new wizards making color management setup easier than ever.”
New ColorLogic users will find ZePrA 9 available in five different packages to fit their specified needs. Upgrades to the latest ZePrA 9 are available with an active Software Maintenance Agreement (SMA) or can be purchased at an upgrade price by contacting a ColorLogic dealer.
