Graphic Republik and Chroma Solutions to showcase MaxPro and Star Proof

The Chroma Solutions (Hall 4, Stand 103) will be the venue for live demonstrations of innovation in Packaging Prepress and proofing technology, with the latest version of Star Proof driving the Epson Stylus Pro series of inkjet printers.

Utilizing the wider colour gamut offered by the Epson 11-colour UltraChrome HDR (High Dynamic Range) ink set, Star Proof produces hard, sharp, screened proofs which are perfect for challenging requirements.

Taking advantage of the additional Orange and Green HDR inks which provide a significantly wider colour gamut when compared to CMYK devices, Star Proof has the ability to match a far wider range of special colours as necessary for the brand and corporate requirements of the Packaging sector.

Visitors will also be able to see the latest developments in Packaging Prepress tools, with live demonstrations of MaxPro, MaxStep and MaxColor. One new option on show will be Silver metallic pro, a feature which analyses images and automatically creates a White ink channel for use when printing Flexo, Gravure or UV Offset on Metallic foil or board.

After creation, the tonal area of the White channel can be adjusted to show more or less of the silver background material – as the new channel is in raster format, additional tonal adjustments can be made simply and quickly. An on-screen Metallic view preview gives options to adjust light intensity and light angle to deliver a realistic visual proof of how the output will look.
