ComposeCompose System to showcase Star Proof at Labelexpo : Compose System, an developer of pre-press workflow and colour proofing solutions, will demonstrate its Star Proof true dot proofing solution during Labelexpo. Using 1 Bit Tiff or Len files with screens of between 25lpi to 200lpi, Star Proof produces contract quality proofs on inkjet printers - quickly and economically. Compose will also be teaming up with Epson to demonstrate Star Proof’s quality whilst driving the current range of inkjet printers. Star Proof is an ideal match for Epson Stylus Pro inkjet printers, whose unique Variable Sized Droplet Technology (VSDT) enables Star Proof to produce screened proofs that are perfect for the demands of the label printing industry.

Thanks to Star Proof, designers, pre-press departments and label printers can now create inkjet proofs that accurately reproduce the sharp dot patterns, trapping and opacity seen on the final printed job. Steve Donegan, European Sales & Marketing Manager at Compose, is excited to be presenting at Labelexpo: “Compose recognizes Labelexpo as The event for label printers in Europe. With an increasing number of pre-press departments switching to digital plate production, the need for a quality screened digital proof increases. The ability to produce an inkjet proof that will accurately represent the finished item, right down to the dot pattern is paramount. Star Proof is an affordable standalone solution that enables users to easily create colour accurate proofs, using the actual ripped data, to produce a hard, sharp dot proof.”

Maximizing accurate colour output
Star Proof is a true dot proofing solution that has no comparison to contone proofing architecture. A contone solution uses a continuous tone that is laid down by the inkjet device and the resulting proof has photographic quality. But the reality is that printers prefer to look at dots. Star Proof's superior technical advantage lies in its' analytical engine, Actual Dot. It analyzes the CMYK dot patterns and screen angles of high resolution separations and reproduces these by creating arrangements of hard dots on the proofer - right down to rosettes, fine line art, text at just 1pt, and even defects such as moiré patterns. With Star Proof, seeing is truly believing.

Compose System - Star Proof
Thanks to Actual Dot's capability to replicate original screening and dot patterns at proofing resolutions, Star Proof delivers top quality proofs with a hard dot, sharp images, accurate colour and fine detail - just as they will appear on the press. And with ROOM proofing architecture to resemble the same set of high resolution separations that are sent to the plate setter/image setter, Star Proof ensures data integrity between proof and print.

High level of colour accuracy
Flexo labels, and packaging in particular, tend to use a lot of ‘special’ or extra-trinary colours. Although inkjet printers cannot print spot colours directly, most of them have wide colour gamuts that allow them to simulate a wide range of “special” colours. The colours produced on the press can be measured and used as a basis to set up colour tables for Star Proof, resulting in a very high level of colour accuracy.

Compose System demonstration at Labelexpo
Labelexpo 2007 is an excellent opportunity for Compose System to communicate with Star Proof's growing customer base in the flexographic industry and to introduce the solutions to new users. With an installed base of over 2,000 units worldwide, the label printing industry is beginning to embrace the benefits that Star Proof brings. JFM Plates, based in Manchester UK, specializes in flexo plates for the narrow web market, serving printers in the label and packaging industry made the switch to Star Proof. Mr. Marc McKee, owner of JFM Plates strongly believes that the end results are like night and day. "Continuous tone proofing might produce a proof that looks good, but you can’t do basic adjustment. Ultimately, you can't really trust what you are seeing and you can't guarantee the final results," says McKee. "Star Proof has provided a dramatic difference in the quality and reliability of our proofs. The accuracy and sharpness of the dots, the ability to physically see the dot structure or rosette on the proof, is exactly the same on the print. We get 100% accuracy every time."

Express WorkFlow delivers maximum productivity
Compose System will also demonstrate its Express WorkFlow solution that provides reliability and efficiency to meet the ever changing demands of today's prepress industry. At its heart is the Compose Express RIP - a fast, flexible version of the Harlequin RIP offering high levels of performance and productivity. A professional prepress workflow system, Express WorkFlow combines practical functionality with ease of use, ensuring tight integration and smooth data delivery between all processes in the customer’s prepress workflow. Express WorkFlow optimizes and automates the production process and ensures data integrity, whether handling PDF or pure PostScript workflow.
