ColorGATE

Fujifilm's Premier Software solution for large format printers is the ColorGATE suite of products

Fujifilm offers you the choice of three exclusive software packages to match your needs. From a basic RIP with an excellent color engine to a solution with a proofing workflow and support for multiple large format presses on the same platform, we have a configuration to meet your production needs.

ColorGATE Production Server 8

Did you choose your current large format RIP or do you have various RIPs that came bundled with each printer you bought? With what you know now about your production needs, how would you design your workflow? What would it look like? Ever think about having one workflow that drives everything from the aqueous proofer to the solvent roll press to the UV flatbed? And what about that cutter or the Computer to Screen device or imagesetter?

The Fujifilm edition of ColorGATE's Production Server is designed to be the center of your inkjet and screen workflow. With support for over 750 different printers, its quite likely that it can drive every proofer, printer, and finishing system in your shop. Combine this with an outstanding color management engine and Fujifilm's technical expertise in color and you have a recipe for success. Perhaps most exciting is the addition of the Adobe PDF Print Engine (APPE). This allows the RIP to interpret the native PDF file to increase speed and eliminate problems with transparencies and layers. Let us show you how Fujifilm and ColorGATE can make a difference to the quality and consistency of the work you produce. Let us show you how you can use one solution. From proof to print to cut.

We are pleased to offer three different Fujifilm Editions of Production Server to help you find a solution that best fits your needs. The Emerald Edition has all the basic tools you will need and lets you add things like proofing and the G7 module later when you need them. The Diamond Edition is more of a "power user" configuration that comes with all the modules we think you will need to produce your work. If your needs are simple and you don't plan to create your own profiles, the Ruby Edition may be the best fit for you. So pick the edition that best fits your needs and then add the proofers, printers and cutters to complete your configuration.

Adobe PDF Print Engine
You don't need us to tell you what's happening in the market. But you probably do need to produce your work more efficiently. Now with the Adobe's PDF Print Engine under the hood, the Fujifilm Edition of ColorGATE boasts trouble free, support for over 750 proofers, inkjet printers and cutters. Imagine a unified workflow where transparencies, layers, spot colors and variable data are no longer a problem–all controlled by a central RIP. ColorGATE is the one solution...from proof to print to cut.

ColorPath Integration Module
Have you ever wanted to see how stable the color is on your production printer? How about an alert or notification if one of the printers is drifting? ColorPath is a w ensuring color consistency across platforms and locations. Backed by Fujifilm's industry-leading expertise in color consistency, ColorPath allows you to maintain the consistency you achieved when you first profiled the printer. The ColorPath Integration Module allows ColorGATE to send the measurements from the quality assurance module up to ColorPath in the cloud automatically which allows you to monitor your color in the cloud from anywhere at any time in any place.

G7 Integration Module
Do you need to reprint a job for a customer and the color needs to be the same as last time you printed it? Do you get requests for quotes that need to be run to GRACoL using the G7 print method? Printing with predictable and reproducible results does not have to be difficult, you just need the right tools for the job. The Quality Assurance Module (QAM) in ColorGATE works with our industry leading ColorPath VerifiedTM software to let you compare the print you just made against your color standard and then view the result from your internet browser. If your printer has drifted, we give you the tools to bring the color back to your target.

Device Link Profiler
Ever wanted to produce a proof and have confidence that the production device would print the same color as the proof without tweaking and adjusting? Good printing is not just about printing quickly. Device Link profiler allows you to simulate your production device from a proofing device or even another production device. Combined with Device Synchronization allows an iterative process to dial in the color. Device Link helps you save time by helping you define your target. And hit it.

Cost Calculation Module
Would you like to know what your ink and media costs will be before the job is printed? Cost Calculation Module extracts ink and substrate consumption and cost for each job as soon as the job is submitted. Reports can be exported as HTML or CSV for use with other applications.

Color Atlas
Looking for an awesome to take matching corporate spot colors? Sometimes matching "by the numbers" is not close enough and an easy to use tool is needed to allow you to create the closest visual match. ColorGATE's new Color Atlas gives you an Interactive tool to create color replacements of spot colors completely integrated within the RIP.
