For some time now, the topic of soft proofing, i.e. color matching and approval of prints by means of a digital proof on a monitor, has been in trend. In general, collaboration, and the associated remote color matching, is also becoming more and more important, not least due to the Covid 19 pandemic.
To simplify workflows and processes even further in the future, Stora Enso has now moved its softproof service to the cloud and developed a softproof box. Integrated in this softproof solution are JUST LED luminaires, which provide the ideal framework conditions for softproofing. Only if the exact same proofing conditions are provided at all ends of the process, such a digital workflow can work smoothly and successfully.
The JUST LED moduLight 1-800 used here is calibrated in the JUST light laboratory and therefore offers 100% identical and constant proofing conditions with the light types CIE D50 and CIE D65, each with and without UV content.

With the light modes D65 and D50, which can be switched individually, this color inspection station complies with the ISO 3664 and ISO 3668 standards. In addition, the UV component can be switched on and off.
With the CHALLENGE D65/D50 a new LED upgrade system is added to our product range. We can now offer all owners of a Challenge 5000 ( built in 2010 or later) an upgrade of the existing station, where only the lamp is replaced, but the station itself can remain in place.

Prinovis, a leading, European printing group, has upgraded its color control stations from fluorescent tubes to JUST LED technology. The stations now provide standardized lighting conditions precisely conforming to the ISO 3664:2009 standard with the D50 (5000 K) illuminant.
As a leader in the printing industry, Prinovis had previously switched from hard-copy to soft proofing, dramatically improving workflow efficiencies. However, they found fluorescent tubes impact color matching accuracy, particularly when dimmed for soft proofing, so they sought a better solution.Find out more » Go back…
