ICScolor, the makers of the premier digital color proofing software Remote Director, announces the release of their newest product, PressCheck. 

Using the Remote Director backbone for sharing color-accurate proofs to the display, PressCheck can send the color-accurate press sheet and target proof comparison directly to the client’s office within a few minutes of printing the sheet. 

“Now printers can get sign-off on the quality match of their press sheet without the need to schedule press downtime around their customers’ travel schedules,” said Dan Caldwell, President of ICScolor. “This opens up the ability to offer press approvals to a wider number of customers while saving costly travel and out-of-office time previously associated with on-site press approvals.”

ICScolor’s new tool fulfils narrow web and label printing requirements

PressCheck is a great tool for narrow web and label printing facilities and those running full-size press sheets. The system comes with a ProofCheck viewer for both the printer and the client to ensure the same color is viewed in both locations. Additional ProofChecks can be added, or the client can use existing hardware.

Offered in a tabloid (12×17) and LF (36” roll-fed) formats, PressCheck is a complete solution for sending your client a color-accurate view of the press sheet.

The system includes

  • ProofCheck viewing station for the printer
  • ProofCheck viewing station for the customer
  • Scanner to capture the press sheet
  • Remote Director software for sending the sheet to the client
  • On-site installation and training (in the USA)

“I’ve seen a lot of soft proofing systems in my time but never anything better than this. To say I was impressed is an understatement,” said color management pioneer Don Hutcheson after viewing a demo of PressCheck. “The soft proof matched the scanned press sheet, the original digital file, and any soft proof I’ve ever seen. Even better, it all happened so quickly and easily, it made me feel color management had finally come of age.”

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.
