GTI to Showcase a Wide Range of Viewing Systems at IPEX 2014
GTI, the leading manufacturer of tight tolerance D50 lighting systems for critical color viewing, color communication, and color matching assessment will be featuring a wide range of Graphiclite® Color Viewing Systems at IPEX 2014. IPEX takes place from March 24th to 29th at the ExCeL Exhibition and Convention Centre in London, England. GTI will be located in Stand N4-D330 during IPEX.
Robert McCurdy, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at GTI states, “The UK and European markets are a priority to GTI. We are thrilled to bring such a large range of ISO 3664:2009 D50 compliant color viewing systems to IPEX.” McCurdy adds, “Format size, substrate, and end use of the printed product all influence the viewing needs of a printer. GTI is pleased offer a solution for each printer’s needs, no matter how unique their requirements are.”
Featured products at IPEX include:
The SOFV-1xiQ is an ISO 3664:2009 D50 compliant desktop soft proofing system. The 1xiQ includes a viewing station with a 19.5″ × 24″ (50cm × 61cm) viewing area and GTI’s unique iQ wireless light sensor. The iQ sensor measures the brightness level of a monitor. This data is transmitted to the viewing station and used to set its light level to achieve an optimal match to the luminosity of the monitor. The SOFV-1xiQ provides accurate calibration and luminance—no wires, computers, or software are required.
Vertical Wall Systems provide an ISO 3664:2009 D50 compliant large format vertical viewing area. Wall systems are an optimized combination of overhead luminaires, viewing lamps, and accessories (wall panels, neutral gray paint, mounting options). GTI’s Graphiclite luminaires feature an innovative parabolic lens design that provides superb light uniformity over a large vertical area. Mounting brackets and Munsell Neutral 8 gray wall steel panels ensure that the system is safely installed and properly positioned for maximum viewing efficiency.
The Simultaneous Color Viewer is designed to help detect metamerism and test color harmony by allowing a visual comparison of colors under four different light sources.
EVS D50 color viewing stations combine state-of-the-art electronic ballasts with Graphiclite T8 fluorescent lamps to produce superior light evenness, excellent rear wall illumination, and enhanced energy efficiency. A built-in print bar and LiteGuard II, which displays lamp warm up, lamp hours, and remaining lamp life, are also included. EVS viewing stations are available with a variety of storage options. Flat file sets consisting of eight drawers or two door storage cabinets can be used alone or combined with one deep or two shallow file drawers. GTI’s EVS color viewing stations are the perfect choice for prepress studios, agencies, publishers, offices, and production environments.
Graphiclite PDV Professional Desktop Viewers are the industry choice for D50 controlled viewing of color prints. Viewing areas from 11.7” x 16.3” (30 cm x 41 cm) to 23.5” x 25.3” (60 cm x 64 cm) are available. All models fold for easy set-up, storage, and transport. Key features include: dimming option for soft proofing, optional side walls for tighter control, and an optional lower luminaire for critical applications.
The Color Rendition Demonstrator is a three-compartment viewer that demonstrates the color rendition of three varied light sources—fluorescent cool-white “store light”, 6500K fluorescent “daylight”, and incandescent “home light.” The Color Rendition Demonstrator allows you to educate your clients and vendors on how color is affected by different light sources.
GTI’s MiniMatcher is ideal for the viewing of coatings, consumer goods, ink, packaging, and more. The MM-1e and MM-2e provide three standard light sources and the MM-4e includes five standard light sources.
