New COLOR TUNER and FLEX PACK versions available

Hainburg, Germany (August 11, 2021) – Color management and proof specialist CGS ORIS releases new software versions – with a clear added value and an additional focus.

Less than twelve months ago CGS ORIS presented cutting-edge software updates, which included many new technical features and, at the same time, started a brand new chapter with a completely redesigned graphic user interface.

Despite corona-related restrictions, the development team has made tremendous progress and developed a wide range of new functions. With key areas of focus on spot color management, proofing on original substrate, the expansion of cloud-based technology as well as the industrial print market.

BigTIFFs, new printers and additional ink sets


CGS ORIS proofing applications now support and process, e.g., photoshop documents or big TIFF files, which are often utilized within the industrial printing market. This new support further enhances the software to enable ease of use and offer greater flexibility.

„Our software is increasingly used by companies within the industrial printing industry. We are closely working together to integrate new functionality that is specifically designed for the industry’s needs to help improve their business even more”, comments Marcus Brune, product manager at CGS ORIS.

Another very important area of focus for CGS ORIS over the last few months has been “direct-to-substrate proofing”. Through great customer feedback, a second Mutoh printer is now supported in FLEX PACK: The Mutoh ValueJet 1628MH with a maximum media width of 1625mm.

Both devices, the Mutoh ValueJet 628MP and the Mutoh Value Jet 1628MH, are leveraging newly developed resin-based XG INKS, which are also made available in Light-Cyan, Light-Magenta, Light-Black, and White.

Let’s not forget the continued support of Roland printers either: In addition, the Roland TrueVIS VG2-640/540 with CMYKOGW (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Key, Orange, Green, and White) ink set is now supported by FLEX PACK.

Simple and effective spot color management

Great advancements have been made in respect to spot color management. New features are now available: For example, a simple to use visual control solution for quickly analyzing which spot colors are in and out of tolerance based on the real-time color gamut of a printing device. This feature fully complements the ability to generate detailed spot color reports, which is a tool many customers have relied on for some time.

„With this new capability, our customers will have a very easy to use and fast method to analyze target and measurement values of a spot color. It’s our goal to continually provide software which is simple and intuitive”, adds Brune.

Particular attention was paid to the continued development of the cloud technology. “As an early development adopter in this area, we already have many powerful tools available in the market, which we have optimized and expanded continuously. All our applications have a seamless connection to our COLOR CLOUD, where brand and spot colors can be saved and shared easily, quickly, and securely. Enabling a central location with global access”, Brune points out.

With the additional option to work with *.scgx files, the exchange of color data has become even more essential for many companies. This is seen in many large multi-site companies, who use the technology to share their up-to-date color data within their entire organization. Many others are also using the COLOR CLOUD to communicate their color with their external partners throughout their entire supply chain.

Process control and automation

The cloud technology is an integral part of the quality and process control process as well as workflow automation. One new feature optimizes the control of spot colors. This enables additional reports, showing in which manner a spot color can be reproduced, and serves as the basis for further automation processes.

The function “time-controlled printing” has been expanded with the ability to show automated signals when inks may require attention or maintenance. This function supports an optimized print device management and a sustainable working environment.

In addition, features were integrated that optimize the print job editor as well as the ICC profile viewer. They help to optimize the profile adjustment and make the production environment more flexible to support efficient and sustainable workflows.

COLOR TUNER is no stranger in the graphic arts industry with a proven track record. The first version was released more than 35 years ago. Since then, the software is continuously developed to align with the latest market requirements and customer demands. The gold standard for thousands of companies worldwide when it comes to professional, color-accurate proofing.

In addition to "classic proofing", CGS ORIS has worked intensively with the packaging industry for many years and offers the industry’s most sophisticated system FLEX PACK. Which was specially developed to create color-accurate packaging proofs and packaging samples in a simple and efficient manner.

We also provide a large portfolio of proofing and packaging-specific substrates for COLOR TUNER and FLEX PACK. More details are available on CGS ORIS´ website.
