Integration of PantoneLIVE™

RHEINE GERMANY — ColorLogic GmbH announces its latest smart color server, ZePrA 6, now includes support for PantoneLIVE™, a cloud-based solution for digitally communicating color across the entire packaging workflow. ZePrA 6 integrates PantoneLIVE in the Spot Color Module, which brings more versatility to the color server. This allows users to directly access spectral data of spot colors and to use it for conversion tasks. The results is color consistency throughout any workflow, which reduces the opportunity for error, waste and rework.  

From our CEO

“We are always looking to add features to our applications to simplify the workflow of our clients. Adding support for PantoneLIVE to ZePrA certainly eases the process of production for our users while maintaining the high quality of our product,” states Barbara Braun-Metz, Managing Director for ColorLogic GmbH. “This addition is especially valuable for the packaging market and will help converters more efficiently meet brand owner demand for consistent color.”
