Alexander Demmler - Softproof Specialist - Spectraproof Software Owner

[Lacunasolutions] has been providing services to industry for more than 25 years now. It provides software and hardware development and design and its own LED-Normlight products. And with Spectraproof, Lacunasolutions has created a Softproofing-Solution with a huge array of stunning features.

Spectraproof works with a combination of spectral mathematics and ICC colour management and calculates the collation of both process and spot colours for on-screen simulation. Standard ICC profiles, N-channel ICC profiles, Cxf4 data and CGATS data are supported. In addition, Spectraproof can visualise photorealistic substrates, primer, varnish, hot foils and other effects. Functions for checking the display quality and simple reporting make it the perfect Softproof-solution. These are all key factors in reducing costs and streamlining processes.

A connected spectrometer can be used to measure additional colours or substrates, calibrate the wide gamut monitor and check all colours rendered in a job. Missing colours can be replaced with colours from the built-in spectral libraries or quickly re-measured. A single Lab measurement, a single spectrum or spectral ramps printed on the substrate are all that is needed to achieve ever higher precision.

Basic annotation tools and the ability to share complete jobs with other users simplify workflows. In addition, there are functions for integration into existing workflows via XML job tickets. All this makes for a simple but powerful soft proofing workflow.

The Spectraproof® system is the perfect combination of the softproofing application, monitor and measuring device and a LED standard light monitor bonnet. Both enable easy remote collaboration and colour communication on a new level.
