  • Ink and toner savings with GCR, Dynamic Maximum Black (DMB) and Minimum TAC & Ink Usage (MTIU)
  • Hydra Profiling® (option)
  • Efficiency and ROI
  • Ink, cost and time Saving
  • High Productivity Mode (HPM) for CMY printing on HP Indigo® devices equipped with EPM option
More accurate colors with Alwan ColorHub Dynamic DeviceLinks™ technology

  • Alwan ColorHub’s award-winning Dynamic DeviceLinks™ technology lets you print more accurate colors than any other color management server.
  • ACH analyzes individual PDF to evaluate its components, identifying all elements, their color description and color spaces.
  • Each object within a PDF is then analyzed for its area coverage and ink consumption.
  • Each object within a PDF is then analyzed for its area coverage and ink consumption.
  • The technology works in all print environments including offset, digital, flexo and gravure.

More ink and toner savings with Alwan ColorHub

  • Alwan ColorHub contains 3 inks savings technologies: industry standard Gray Component Replacement (8 levels of GCR), together with proprietary Dynamic Maximum Black (10 levels of DMB) and Minimum TAC & Ink Usage (5 levels of MTIU).
  • GCR offers enhanced color separation as black is preferred to cyan, magenta and yellow inks
  • DMB goes the extra mile by using up to 10% less ink and toner than GCR Max without any compromise on quality
  • MTIU technology has a focus on minimizing the TAC, regardless of the channel, which allows up to 50% ink savings compared to original separation.
  • As a result, costs are significantly cut, printing speed is increased and printing stability is improved.

Cheaper and faster spot color printing with HiFi® option

  • Alwan ColorHub’s HiFi (High-Fidelity) option for Extended Color Gamut (ECG) processes, coupled with CxF/X-4 technology, has been designed to reproduce spot colors without using spot inks1 .
  • Instead, 4, 5, 6 or 7 process inks such as XCMYK® or CMYKOGV are used to extend the print device color gamut and enable the accurate simulation of spot colors.

Output profile update with Hydra Profiling® option

  • Patented Hydra Profiling® spectral prediction technology2 is able to build output ICC profiles from virtually any measurement file, not necessarily an IT8.
  • Hydra Profiling® also allows you to edit an output profile to accomodate any change in printing condition, ink or substrate without the need for a profiling session.
  • This solution makes profiling sessions upon each change in the output process a thing of the past and saves considerable time and money.
  • By having an up-to-date print device profile as a target output in Alwan ColorHub, your color separation, ink optimization and color accuracy will always be of unequalled quality.
