X-Rite launches PantoneLive Private Cloud

X-Rite, which owns Pantone, has announced a Private Cloud addition to its PantoneLive offering. This is a secure, cloud-based repository that allows packaging converters and commercial printers to easily store and share existing proprietary colour libraries across the colour supply chain.

PantoneLive is designed to take out any ambiguity when communicating colour specifications across the workflow process. All colours published in PantoneLIVE Private Cloud are available for selection within PantoneLIVE enabled prepress systems such as GMG and Esko.

Adrián Fernández, Vice President, PantoneLIVE, explained: “Leveraging the benefits of the PantoneLIVE model to streamline colour specification and communication, we are now enabling printers to publish proprietary colours in a private cloud infrastructure. This makes colour data easily available at all phases of production and across multiple locations. No matter the colour standard used, converters can be sure that everyone is using the same reference data.”

X-Rite has also set up a new PantoneLIVE Rationalization Service to help customers move to the PantoneLive Private Cloud. This analyzes and consolidates a printer’s existing colour library to improve colour accuracy, increase production efficiencies, reduce ink stocks and avoid wasteful duplication of colour. The system will be demonstrated at this year’s Drupa show.
