ColorGATE

Germany-based ColorGATE has been supporting the printing industry for over 20 years by providing software for the wide format and industrial printing sectors. It is a leading provider of performance-optimized color management and workflow software to standardize and automate growing digital print markets including décor and textiles. As every material has its own specific surface characteristics, the newly-supported color measurement devices for the ColorGATE RIP software solutions provide sophisticated systems to measure in the most demanding digital print applications.

ColorGATE distributes color measuring devices and accessories for color management to create color profiles for digital imaging, prepress and digital printing. They perfectly complement the leading Productionserver software solutions for digital packaging, decorative surface production, digital textile printing, digital container decoration, and digital metal decoration.

Once the required color profiles have been created, they remain stored in the software and ensure the best possible color transformation of the print jobs – from the source format to the printing system’s color space. Color variations can be detected with the suitable measuring technology and corrected by recalibration – even before they become visible to the human eye.

A specialized measurement device, for example, is the sphere spectrophotometer. Sphere spectrophotometers can provide reflectance measurements in two ways: specular included (SPIN) and specular excluded (SPEX). The specular port can be opened and closed during the measurement to include or exclude specular reflection like gloss. It can be used to measure transparent and translucent samples, fluorescent samples, and color and appearance separately.

ColorGATE production server supports the new spectrophotometers such as X-Rite Ci6X Series, Color Sentinel Systems CSS110, Konica Minolta FD-5, FD-7 and FD-9, and Techkon SpectroDens, a spectrodensitometer.

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.
