R.R. Donnelley Europe decides on color management technology developed by ColorLogic
16 June 2008
Since 2007 R.R. Donnelley Europe located in Krakow uses the DeviceLink technology developed by ColorLogic for print production. After testing several products from different vendors, it came out that CoLiPri and CoPrA developed by ColorLogic, fit best to R.R. Donnelley requirements.
CoLiPri, a synonym for Color – Link – Print, allows to create, evaluate, edit and use DeviceLink profiles directly in Adobe Photoshop®. The so created DeviceLink profiles may be used in several ICC-compatible workflow solutions for PDF files.
Another highlight of ColorLogic’s solution is that the user may use all global color correction tools inside Photoshop and than easily calculates a DeviceLink profile, which covers all this transformations. This allows reliable and high-quality modification of incoming print data to different printing standards.
In addition to the CoLiPri functionality R.R. Donnelley also uses CoPrA, to create printer profiles and DeviceLink profiles for CMYK, RGB and Grayscale color spaces. After testing the beta version of CoPrA in 2007 the decision to use this innovative product was clear for the color experts from R.R.Donnelley.
