RHEINE, GERMANY — ColorLogic GmbH, part of Hybrid Software Group, announces the release of ColorAnt 8, an advanced color measurement and optimization tool. The latest version of ColorAnt brings new capabilities and enhancements to everyday features. One of the new features added to the Custom Chart tool, now has an InkSplitting mode in which charts have light colors for predefined colors and adjustable TAC limits. As a result, printers can create ink splitting DeviceLink profiles easier than ever.

Support for additional measurement devices

ColorLogic leads the industry with first-to-market incorporation of industry standards and measurement devices. ColorAnt 8 now supports the X-Rite i1iSis 2 family of spectrophotometers. Users can measure their test charts in MeasureTool and work in ColorAnt simultaneously for a more efficient workflow. Additionally, the Export Tool now has markers and margins with predefined i1iSis 2 and i1iSis 2 XL settings. The Add Auto-Positioning marker automatically adds the required markers to test charts to perform automatic measurements. Also, the new Margin Sizes section defines margins for test charts. Customers will find this new feature useful as some measurement devices need extra space before and after a row while measuring.

“Keeping up with industry standards is not only a goal but a driving force at ColorLogic,” states Thorsten Braun, CTO of ColorLogic. “Adding X-Rite i1iSis measurement devices to our long list of supported devices is key for making ColorLogic versatile across all different mediums of print.”

Enhanced features

Customers will benefit from the enhanced evaluation tools. The ISO 12647-8 Validation Print method now reflects the most recent tolerances from 2021, and the Proof Evaluation tool has added PSD evaluation methods. Additionally, support for mixed CxF files and adjustable TAC limits are just some of the many upgrades to the features used every day.
