First UK demonstration of new Packaging proof solution at the NEC Birmingham.

Visitors to the Epson stand at PackTech in the NEC Birmingham, 24-25th February 2010 will be able to see the latest advances in Packaging proofing technology. When used in combination, Star Proof V6 and the Epson Stylus Pro WT7900 produce the hardest, sharpest dot proofs on a wide range of medias, perfect for Brand owners, Graphic Arts specialists, Prepress companies and Printers.

In addition, Star Proof fully supports the Epson Stylus Pro WT7900 white ink printing mode, giving users the ability to produce samples, prototypes and final proofs which are representative of the actual printed article. To fully compliment Epson ClearProof Film™ and CrystalClear film™, Star Proof gives users full control over white ink density and hue, allowing adjustments to be made simply and quickly. Reverse print and surface print modes are also fully supported.

For brand owners and design houses, Star Proof has an in-built Rip which accepts standard file formats such as PDF or Postscript, whilst for Repro houses and Printing companies, Star Proof accepts Raster data in 1 Bit Tiff or Barco “Len” file formats at resolutions up to 4,000 dpi, screen rulings up to 200 lpi/80 lpcm and support for the latest HD Flexo screening technologies. The resultant data integral proof sets high standards in inkjet proofing with faithful reproduction of dot shape, trapping, pull-backs and overprints.

Star Proof also provides users with a cerifiable Spot colour library allowing brand colours and industry standard colour matching systems such as Pantone™, GOE™ and Opaltone™ to be matched and verified to a low ΔE tolerance.
