SpectroDens – New features for download free of charge

Techkon releases new features


There is good news for all users of the SpectroDens spectrophotometer device. These are new practical features that can be added to the devices by downloading from the Techkon
website free of charge. The new measurement function for the quality control of spot colors SCTV (Spot Colour Tone Value) can now be used with all SpectroDens units having color displays.

The useful feature Average Measurement is now available for all devices. The PhotoLab Module for colorimetric quality control, which is embedded within the software SpectroConnect, also works with the Advanced version of SpectroDens. SpectroConnect supports the export format ISO 18620:2016.

The Techkon software SpectroConnect now supports the exchange of tone adjustment curves between different applications on the basis of the international standard ISO 18620:2016. This is a standardized but simply extensible format for applications like color
management, calibration and raster image processor systems. Prerequisite are transfer curves created with SpectroDens or SpectroJet.

Although we became aware of one of these new features at the end of November 2017, when Steve Smiley was in India for a G7 project that we did together, we did not download
and test the SCTV feature on our color lab’s Techkon SpectroDens Advanced. We will download and try out the new features, including the Average Measurement and the
support for the export format ISO 18620:2106, and report on these in the next issue.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
