Confident Solutions For Designers And Photographers

Colour Confidence, a leading independent colour management specialists, have announced the availability of two exclusive solutions for designers and photographers. Based around the LaCie 300 series monitors, the Designer Edition and Photo Edition include a selection of products designed to improve the end user's overall workflow and provide excellent value, at the same price as the monitor on its own.
The new generation II LaCie 300 series build on the heritage of the extremely popular LaCie Electron monitors. They have improved colour fidelity and sharpness, as well as enhanced colour uniformity across the screen. Additionally, there are improvements within the Blue-Eye Pro software that is included with the monitor. The software is easy-to-use, has an increased number of advanced options and evaluation tools and now supports the full range of monitor calibration devices including the Eye-One Display-2, Optix XR and Spyder2 colorimeters.
The Designer Edition includes the LaCie 300 series monitor of your choice, be it 319, 320 or 321 and comes bundled with the Pantone Color Bridge and the Colour Confidence Repro Pack. This is an ideal package for any designer who wants accurate on-screen colour, needs to specify colour for print and requires visual validation of their on-screen and printed image.
The Pantone Color Bridge is the most popular Pantone guide available. Formerly known as the Pantone Solid to Process Guide, the book is designed to help determine how a Pantone colour will appear when reproduced in standard process colours (CMYK). It also shows RGB and HTML colour values for optimal display on a monitor.
The Repro Pack provides confidence in colour and is a quick and easy way to check if colour appears to be going adrift on your monitor or proofer/printer. The pack consists of a digital CMYK test image, digital RGB image, a reference profile designed to give optimum results on press and a Press sheet with a RHEM strip for visual matching to the digital CMYK test image.
The Photo Edition also includes a choice of 300 series monitor as well as the Kodak Color Management Check-Up Kit and a copy of the Iridius Actions 1.1 Pro bundle.
For photographers this solution provides confidence in their image on-screen and in print, and a series of time-saving actions designed to improve and simplify the photographers use of Photoshop.
The Kodak Check-Up Kit comprises a set of seven digital test files with photographic reference prints, the Colour Confidence Guidance for Digital Photography PDF, a RHEM Strip to verify viewing conditions and generic ICC profiles for different photographic printers using KODAK PROFESSIONAL output materials. It is a quick and easy way to check if colour appears to be drifting on your monitor or printer.
The Iridius Actions bundle is a collection of more than 90 professional production and creative actions that have been written specifically to streamline and automate repetitive Photoshop tasks regularly undertaken by digital photographers.
"The LaCie 300 series monitors are an excellent colour accurate solution which our technical team awarded four stars in their recent evaluation," commented Geoffrey Clements, Managing Director, Colour Confidence. "The two solutions have been created with the idea of providing the customer with as many of the right tools for the job as possible, – the Designer and Photo Editions achieve this by taking into account the needs of both markets and adding value to an already excellent product."
