ColorGATE Productionserver is a software package that allows you to precisely control color in digital printing and to professionally manage printing data. Useful additional features make your everyday production work easier.
Productionserver Light: our basic configuration at a reasonable price, which allows you to output PDFs, JPEGs, TIFFs and other file formats in the correct colors. The Adobe PDF Print Engine (APPE) as well as support for Pantone colors are already on board. Category 1 printer support is also included, so you can get started right away.
You have an output device from Canon, Epson, HP, Mimaki, Mutoh or Roland Then a Manufacturer Edition might be the right thing for you! These have been optimized for color correct control of special devices and have numerous practical additional functions such as our Print and Cut Module, Photo Fine Art Module, Cost Calculation Module and more.
Note: I'm not sure what identify's color space means exactly (as PDF documents or even pages pages do not need to have a single color space AFAIK). While most objects are RGB, the third-party PDFs may contain some Pantone-colored objects as well.
The 2021 Asus Zephyrus G14 that we're testing is the more expensive of the two main variants available in the US. Both options come with the same AMD Ryzen 9 5900HS processor and NVIDIA RTX 3060 GPU (60W, 80W boost), but our model is equipped with 32GB of RAM and a WQHD display that claims 100% coverage of the DCI-P3 color gamut, while the more affordable model comes with only 16GB of RAM and a Full HD display that can only manage 100% of sRGB.
Note that the RAM in the Full HD version is user-upgradable, but for creatives, we would still recommend the more expensive option simply because of the color-accurate display. The extra pixels aren't totally necessary at this screen size, but we've found that many high-refresh-rate displays used in gaming laptops slightly under-perform their spec sheet when it comes to gamut coverage, so it's always good to have some cushion above and beyond 100% sRGB.
In other words: the display is accurate enough for proper photo and video editing on the go, but I would not rely on it as my only screen. When it's time for serious color grading, use the USB-C/DisplayPort to connect a larger, color-accurate 4K monitor, especially if you're planning to print your work.
For creative professionals, you can go in knowing that the I/O is solid, the trackpad is good (if a little bit small), and the screen is sufficiently color accurate so that you can get your work done on the go. If you can live without Thunderbolt and a webcam, the G14 checks just about every other 'ultra-portable' box, without sacrificing performance.
True, if you're an feature film editor or compositor and need to work with 8K or multiple 4K clips, this isn't for you. However, the vast majority of \"creatives\" aren't going to need those kind of specs. This seems to be a great little system for photographers, videographers or graphic designers. Like you, though, I need a bit more power. I'm about to spend the next 6-12 months working around Europe so I needed a beefy laptop. I ended up getting a Lenovo Legion 7i \"gaming\" laptop. It has an 16\" 16:10 display, i7-11800H, 32GB RAM, 1TB SSD and a 165w RTX 3080 w/16GB VRAM, and unlike the AMD version, Thunderbolt4 and PCI-E 4.0. I upgraded it to 64GB RAM and added a second SSD (it has two M.2 connectors). With a slight undervolt/overclock using Intel Extreme Tuning Utility, the system easily hits 15000 in Cinebench. The only downside is that the display is 100% sRGB but not P3. Not a big deal though since I wouldn't do any serious color grading on a laptop display anyway.

GMG OpenColor and GMG SpotColor Editor use the manufacturer's official target values for spot color calculation. If a spot color has been verified on GMG Spot Color Control Strip 2.0 with low dE values, you can thus rely on it being reproduced correctly, even if the result may differ visually from your color guide.
Please make sure, that non-standard-conformant spot colors (not Pantone or HKS) are defined in the user database, otherwise a high quality reproduction of spot colors is not possible. The user spot color database \"SMARtt_SpotDefinitionss.txt\" can be found in the subfolder \"SMARtt_spot\" in the SMARtt application data folder.
If no Lab-definition of the spot color is found in the spot color profile or the user spot color database, the \"alternate colorspace\"-tag in the PDF code will be analysed and the spot color will be rendered on the basis of the CYMK- or RGB-definition in the PDF tag.
In general the color reproduction will be handled by the color management module (CMM) by allocating the simulation profile and the monitor profile and offers thereby an optimal mathematical and metrological conformity in the boundaries of the technical possibilities.
\"Error 1\" can be caused because the basICColor input software does not have the rights to save the ICC Profile into the \"color\" folder. Please change the properties of basICColor input to run in the \"Windows XP Compatibility Mode\" which can be found in the preferences of the application. To get to the preferences you have to make a right mouse click on the application.
It is not possible to measure color samples directly in the basICColor spoTTuner. But it is possible to measure color samples in basICColor catch and transfer them to basICColor spoTTuner for further optimization.
The screen, a major link of the digital graphic chain, is the only visual element on which to rely to carry out the photographic work. If it reproduces the colors badly, it is all the management of the color which is badly done and the impression will bring bad surprises.To calibrate its screen is a necessity, more especially as the existing solutions are cheap. The implementation of the épreuvage mode in lightroom 4 is a reason more to initiate with this practice which became an obviousness in the modern workflow.
At the end of this calibration the i1 profiler allows you to qualitatively assess your profile thanks to a set of color palettes which will be used to assess the difference between the theoretical color of this color palette and that obtained in your profile.
The professional version provides a complete record. FIG. 16 illustrates the result with a representation of a 24 color patch in which each color patch is divided into two parts: the upper part represents the approximate color obtained by the screen and the lower part that of reference. The left part of the screen summarizes the differences, expressed in DeltaE, which separate the measured colors from the ideal colors. Thus, thanks to a threshold which is determined by the DeltaE3 index, the reference value, the quality assurance report accepts or rejects the measurement. In the following figure the part circled in green shows that the result is accepted.
At the end of the calibration, the user accesses the quality trend monitoring over time in the form of a point curve, a before / after preview in order to assess in which color range the corrections have been most important, and the height of refinement, of an interactive 3D graphic representing the ICC profile in the LAB reference color space. The visualization of these results goes through the tabs of the result window.
The experience is really worth trying as the result is good. Look at the difference between the theoretical colors and the colors of the screen. For less than 200 euros, you get a professional result. Remember that the weakest link in your digital editing flow will condition the result of your final work.
We can compile and run in the same step by executing nim -r c platformer,assuming you called the file platformer.nim. To compile with optimizationsuse nim -d:release -r c platformer. The result is a simple one-coloredwindow:
This looks better, but would be hard to see with a brighter background. Wecan draw an outline for our text to fix this, basically by drawing the texttwice, once in half-transparent black and once in the proper color on top:
Linux users have to install sdl2, sdl2_image, sdl2_ttf using their packagemanager. Windows users get them bundled. Our build script creates thisdirectory structure when we run it with nim -r c release:
I have a Thinkpad W520 and it has a Pantone colour calibrator.I looked it up here and in Google Search but as it seems the gnome colour manager can't use it as calibrating device at all(maybe there is no driver at all to do so,but anyway this is not the key issue). So I was wondering if there is any other colour calibrating hardware(from Pantone or any other decent company) which will be compatible with Ubuntu.There is I am asking this is because I have noticed that in Windows 7 where the Pantone colour calibrator of my laptop works,the eye strain is not happening so often it when it happens it usually is noticeable after a 2-3 hours where in Ubuntu I get it usually after 40 minutes of continuous use.
So I guess I will go for X-Rite i1 Display Pro.I would like to go for a Huey Pro,but I looked it up on the web and there were people telling that Pantone is not supporting any more that specific device and whoever has a newer/more modern screen (either laptop screen or a normal PC monitor or MAC monitor) might not be able to make it work properly with them and make the colors look nothing,but normal. 1e1e36bf2d
