Color Confidence Autumn 2012 review – part 1

Welcome to part one of our autumn 2012 update, reviewing product developments over the last year combined with explanations of the technology.

This first posting actually looks forwards slightly as we prepare for the upcoming Packaging Innovation’s Exhibition in London, on the 4-5th October.

Entry to the show is free, and we’ll be there on stand GB1 to showcase our expertise in colour management, and the latest developments from Pantone, NEC monitors, Just Normlicht (viewing booths) and the new interactive RealVue 3D Packaging Software from FFEI. Here’s a brief overview of what we will be showing:


336 new colours have been added to the Pantone Plus range. If you own the Pantone Plus series of guides, this is your opportunity to update your guides whilst the 336 supplements are available. It’s also a great opportunity to see the Pantone Capsure in action, and indispensable tool for capturing colour from any surface and matching to the nearest Pantone reference.

RealVue 3D Packager:

Interactive packaging visualisation software ideal for design, through to production. Take a test drive with us – send us an illustrator file and experience it in RrealVue 3D.

Viewing booths for colour assessment:

See a range of viewing booths including the Just Normlicht Color Communicator 2 for soft-proofing and the Pantone 5 Light for product/packaging colour assessment.

NEC – SpectraView colour accuracy:
