RHEINE, GERMANY — ColorLogic GmbH, a subsidiary of Hybrid Software Group, announces the release of their smart color server, ZePrA 11. Overall, this upgrade focuses on optimizing and automating printing data to deliver smoother print workflows and high-quality spot color conversion.

New features and enhancements

The Minimize Output Channel feature is the standout improvement of ZePrA 11. It creates and analyzes multiple profile variants to determine the best profile for the job that uses the least number of channels for spot color conversions, saves ink and reduce click costs. This feature automatically adjusts to process multiple jobs with different spot colors. Furthermore, the advanced spot color conversion methods underwent an improvement to enhance accuracy. This includes methods to achieve a visual match and use the least number of channels. Additionally, a new Prefer CMYK feature is now available. It allows spot colors to convert to the CMYK component of a Multicolor profile. This is especially helpful when using the Minimize Output Channel option.


ZePrA produces quick results working as a standalone product, or in conjunction with other ColorLogic software, or integrated into sophisticated workflow systems such as HYBRID CLOUDFLOW and Enfocus Switch. Intelligent automation and state-of-the-art  workflows can be set up with the new ZePrA Connector available as a module for CLOUDFLOW. Furthermore, the CLI has also undergone significant improvements, which enhances the speed and efficiency of processing files. The latest version of the color server has an upgraded Callas PDF engine 14 to run faster on the new modern Macs with ARM processors. Thus, resulting in quicker processing times for flattening PDF files.

ColorLogic’s CTO on new customization features

“We are excited about ZePrA 11’s new customization features. Users can now add their company logo to Spot Color Reports and personalize report titles. Additionally, with the improved CLI and the great teamwork of HYBRID software and ColorLogic, a new ZePrA Connector for CLOUDFLOW has been created,” states Thorsten Braun, CTO of ColorLogic. “These options make it easier for users to customize ZePrA 11 to their specific needs and preferences.”
