Gimlé, developers of AbsoluteProof digital inkjet proofing software, have announced the launch of AbsoluteProof Live, the world's first subscription proofing system. Hugo Kristinsson, CEO of Gimlé said, "AbsoluteProof has set the benchmark for quality in digital inkjet proofing for over 8 years. It is designed to meet any of the demanding colour proofing requirements in any sector of the printing and packaging industries. It stands out with its ability to deal with the most demanding tasks in the packaging sector, proofing to standards such as SWOP, Gracol, Fogra and 3DAP but more importantly your own printer. It was the world’s first digital inkjet proofing for HiFi colour workflows such as Hexachrome and matches over 93% of the Pantone colour library.

Kristinsson continued, "The release of AbsoluteProof Live will radically improve proofing across the printing industry and make high end proofing affordable to any sector of the market. The world’s first subscription based model, AbsoluteProof Live provides the benchmark quality of AbsoluteProof, while being extremely cost effective and fully flexible to meet the individual needs of any user. Amongst the extensive feature set is the ability to drive any supported printer, to generate Halftone Proofs, proof verification, Remote Proofing and perform backed-up proofing.

"AbsoluteProof Live is optimised for the INTEL Mac and OSX, it ships with the latest Pantone libraries and colourport from Xrite provides support for all the latest measuring devices. Also with the release of the Epson Stylus Pro 7900/9900, a wider colour gamut can be achieved with the new Epson UltraChrome HDR ink to replicate Pantone colours. This will bring a new standard to print and proofing up to 44” wide.

"AbsoluteProof technology integrates easily into existing pre-press, print and packaging workflows and enables printers to proof difficult colour jobs with ease. The cost benefit when comparing traditional analog proofs to AbsoluteProofs can be well over 60% savings in turnaround time, not to mention materials and labour. When you consider that high quality halftone and remote proofing capabilities are included in the subscription price, AbsoluteProof delivers exceptional quality and value proofing to any print company regardless of scale.

"There are many advantages of using software as a service rather than purchasing it outright. AbsoluteProof Live has a low monthly cost which is tax deductable, with ongoing live support, online installation, access to leading colour consultants, no software restrictions, continual upgrades free of charge, online training video library, and importantly, user feedback as a valued input for future development.

"AbsoluteProof Live is a revolutionary step in proofing software, offering the most advanced proofing system in the industry. With the ability to customise the solution regardless of the client’s size or sector, every printing business will gain huge quality, performance and value for an extremely low monthly cost.

“We believe that AbsoluteProof Live will radically improve digital proofing performance across the printing industry and become an invaluable tool to individual print professionals industry wide,” he concluded.
