Consistent Color Output
All the color profiles in xColor are connected by RGB/CMYK to CMYK DeviceLink profiles, ensuring consistently excellent results.
Standardised color space
Via native support of the PDF/X-4 standard, xColor normalizes the contents of elements found in a PDF (sRGB, US Web Coated SWOP, and Coatead FOGRA39) to ISO Coated v2 then converts the normalized elements to your intended color output.
Images, text and vectors are converted with respect to the number of plates in the source artwork, keeping pure colors pure. This ensures consistent branding across multiple outputs.
xColor queues can be set up to pull/push files to and from your hot folders via file storage and management vendors such as Dropbox or Egnyte.
The xColor platform includes a powerful API allowing for seamless integration with your current workflow systems.

Monitor, edit, and add queues across your studio locations from one central platform.
Why Color Convert?
Monitors use RGB (Red, Green, Blue) values to make up colors, while printers use CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black). This means that the color values of your monitor should be translated in order to print properly. All monitors and printers have different color ranges. As such, different devices may not be able to recreate the same colors.
With color conversion you ensure that you are:
- Supplying RBG colors that are within your printer's CMYK range
- Retaining optimal color output by mapping color values and relationships
Color profiles are an international standard for denoting CMYK colors so that they will appear the same across all devices and also fall within the range of the printer.
The European-centric standard for reproducing color, defined by the International Color Consortium.
The Australian standard for reproducing color, defined by the industry group Digital Data Delivery for Australian Publications.
The U.S. standard for reproducing color, defined by the organisation Specifications for Web Offset Publications.
Without having color converted your print material and approved it, the printed version may end up looking different to what you or your client signed off on. With xColor, all your artwork will be assigned a color profile to ensure optimal and consistent results that are reproducible by your printer.
From optimal color conversion to additional integrations and location management, choose the level that suits your requirements.
