Two new screening options from Global Graphics

Global Graphics has announced two new screening options for its ScreenPro screening engine, called Chameleon and Chimera. They can be used for single pass inkjet applications in any label and packaging workflow alongside any RIP. 

Martin Bailey, chief technology officer for Global Graphics.

Chameleon creates a unique dot pattern for each press that blends away physical artefacts such as streaking, mottling and chaining. Global Graphics claims that it is very fast at processing image data and ideal for variable data workflows. 

Chimera uses a totally new screening algorithm that combines tile-based screening and error diffused screening in one screen to improve output quality. It’s said to retain fine detail such as individual strands of hair as well as smooth flat tints in the highlights.

Global Graphics will be discussing these new screening options at the Label Expo show, along with other technologies for the label and packaging sector. This includes Fundamentals, a collection of tools and best of breed solutions from other vendors such as Hybrid Software that can be used as an alternative to using an Esko workflow. Global Graphics will also discuss its BreakThrough engineering service to help press vendors develop their solutions.
