Leading Color Viewing Systems to be Featured at Graph Expo 2015
GTI will be showcasing its industry leading color viewing solutions at GRAPH EXPO 2015, which will be held from September 13th to 16th at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL. GTI will be located in booth # 435 during Graph Expo.
Robert McCurdy, GTI’s President states, “We are pleased to be exhibiting at Graph Expo and invite all attendees to our booth where they will be able to see first-hand how light affects color and the value of viewing color under standard lighting conditions.” Accurate color assessment and communication requires compliance with the ISO 3664:2009 standard, which defines tight tolerance viewing conditions for graphic arts and photographic applications. McCurdy adds, “If all stakeholders in the supply chain are evaluating color in the same conditions production costs can be reduced, faster customer approvals can be obtained, and fewer post production issues will occur.” During Graph Expo GTI will feature the following ISO 3664:2009 complaint viewing systems:
Soft View SOFV-1xiQ
The Soft View SOFV-1xiQ is a desktop soft proofing system that easily provides accurate color comparisons between hard copy prints and computer monitors. The SOFV-1xiQ includes a viewing station and the revolutionary wireless iQ sensor. The system enables superb lighting uniformity with a small desktop footprint that meets ISO 3664:2009 D50 light quality for superior color rendition. During Graph Expo GTI will demonstrate the SOFV-1xiQ in partnership with Remote Director, a supplier of soft proofing software, and EIZO, a manufacturer of professional high quality LCD monitors.
