With the DFE Profiler Module (DFEPM) – an extension of the well-proven Profiler Module (PFM) – ColorGATE offers a new method for ICC-characterization of digital printing systems that have their own DFE (Digital Front End) and an integrated ICC-compatible RIP. The DFEPM generates a special ICC profile which, in addition to the usual color characterization, also contains the process color control and thus combines all the necessary information for the entire calibration workflow.
In this way, not only the ink lay down but also the combination of the process colors is regulated in detail and an optimum image reproduction is made possible.
This extended ICC profile can be used variably in all DFEs and RIPs that work with output ICC profiles. The created profiles can be used flexibly as input as well as output profile and also for proofing. With the DFEPM, ColorGATE thus offers the option of taking advantage of the optimized ColorGATE linearization even with alternative RIP systems and in external printing environments.
