ChromaQA is a state-of-the-art software suite driving the easiest process & spot color corrections across your printing operation. ChromaQA is software for your desktop that works in conjunction with your pressroom spectrophotometers to distill color measurement data into clear, precise and actionable feedback for your operators. With ChromaQA, operators are not required to be highly skilled users of spectrophotometers or computers. The ChromaQA software quickly guides operators to the optimum color match and eliminates the guesswork. As a result, ChromaQA can slash your pressroom make-ready times and ensure color consistency throughout each press run
- Easily and quickly guides operators to the optimum color match. Removes the guesswork and slashes make-ready times.
- Store, organize, rationalize, and share inks across your print locations. Perform quality checks in the inkroom to prevent problems on press.
- Create job reports for brand customers. Query tools show trends, provide visibility, and allow for continuous process improvements.
- Cloud-based architecture ensures easy sharing of color standards, jobs, and quality reports across the entire organization.
ChromaQA will work with SpectroDens handheld or SpectroVision inline spectrophotometers (as well as competitive instruments) via USB cable or through a wireless connection. ChromaQA also provides the options and advantages of cloud communications to share data across different locations, permit remote supervision, or to share a color results Scorecard or verification with your brand customers. In addition to helping press operators, ChromaQA includes a dedicated software module to manage your ink color standards and QC new drawdowns in the Ink department as well as a sophisticated reporting engine for the Quality group. Finally, the cloud-based architecture ensures that you can easily share color standards, jobs and quality reports across your entire production team..
