ONYX Graphics Inc. announced that Onyx workflow software products can be used to produce press proof output that complies with G7 Certification Level 1 standards. G7 is a proof-to-print process based on a set of color criteria developed to ensure digital print technology elements (RIP, printer, media, and ink) can reproduce a typical offset lithography sheet. Certification means customers can use digital press proofs with the assurance of matching Standard web Offset Printing (SWOP) criteria.
The certification was awarded to Onyx ProductionHouse software driving the Epson Stylus Pro 11880 printer with Epson Premium Luster Photo Paper 260g and Epson Ultrachrome ink. Onyx says the certification standards measure color reproduction through the use of International Color Consortium (ICC) color-matching profiles for primary and secondary colors and specific grey values. The ICC profile created in Onyx Profile Generator reportedly exceeded all testing standards and achieved a certification category of GRACoL Grade 1, the highest available.
The ICC profile that earned certification can be used with any Onyx workflow software, including ProductionHouse, PosterShop, RipCenter, and GamaPrint. The ICC profile and the printer driver with the profile are available on request from Onyx.
