RHEINE, GERMANY — ColorLogic GmbH, part of Hybrid Software Group, announces the release of ColorAnt 8, an advanced color measurement and correction tool that creates, analyzes and optimizes measurement data. ColorAnt 8 brings new capabilities and enhancements to the features used every day. For example, the Custom Chart tool now has an InkSplitting mode, 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 Measure Tool and work in ColorAnt 8 simultaneously for a more efficient workflow. The Export Tool has added 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. Users will find this new features 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

Users 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. Also, support for mixed CxF files and adjustable TAC limits are just some of the many upgrades to the features used every day.
