Kodak Proofing Software 5.1.0 Release

For Matchprint Inkjet proofers, Kodak Proofing Software 5.1.0 is now available in three editions: Basic Edition, Commercial Edition, and Packaging Edition. Each edition is controlled by a license and includes only the features that you need.

Kodak Proofing Software (KPS) version 5.1 adds KPS Client software support for Mac OS 10.6. This release also adds KPS Matchprint Inkjet support for the following Epson proofers: Epson Stylus Pro 4900, Epson Stylus Pro 7890, Epson Stylus Pro 9890 and the Epson Stylus Pro WT7900 white ink printer. KPS 5.1 can proof on clear film media using standard right reading “Surface” print or wrong reading “Reverse” print options (where the proof is viewed through the reverse side of the proof media as a right reading image).

In addition to new printer hardware, KPS 5.1 also adds hardware support for the X-Rite i1iSis, X-Rite i1iSis XL, and the X-Rite DTP70 spectrophotometers.

KPS Commercial and Packaging Editions offer the ability to create CMYK DeviceLink profiles for inkjet proofing, with the Packaging Edition also offering the ability to simulate flexographic highlight bump or minimum values. CMYK DeviceLink profile generation options include:

  • Color and Black Purity – Maintain Solids
  • Color and Black Purity
  • Black Purity Only
  • Retain CMYK Integrity
  • Full Re-separation

Using the latest RIP technology, Kodak Proofing Software can process PDF files natively via the built in Adobe PDF Print Engine (APPE) with the option to support legacy Adobe PostScript workflows with the Configurable PostScript Interpreter Engine (CPSI).
