Plategate Module PLGM
The Plategate Module PLGM adds the complete range of Plategate 7 functions to Productionserver to offer the following additional options:
- Computer-to-plate productions with inkjet systems
- Chemical and exposure-free creation of plates for the low-end offset market
Full color preview
Colored job preview in composite mode (merging of all separations)
Process color separations
Separations display in process colors
Separations display in black/white
Arrangement on printing area
Output preview of the separation arrangement on the print medium
Fixed stencil size
Defined output area with output of cut marks and indication of protected margins.
Copy and layout print on fixed plate size
Definition of output area with cut marks and indication of protected margins.
ICC color management for separation creation
Separation creation based on selectable or embedded CMYK-ICC profiles. Selectable Rendering Intents for RGB-zo-CMYK conversions.
Dot gain correction
Up to +/- 40% for single or all separations or calculation of tonal value curves from a given ICC profile.
Automatic creation of CMYK separations
Change spot color to CMYK
Conversion of embedded spot colors into the CMYK separations
Print black plate
Automatic deactivation of all separations except for black (K) for composite files.
Separations to jobs
Creates a separate print job from each separation of a print file.
Transformation of each separation to a negative output. The Info Text, Cut Marks and Registration Marks will also be printed inversely.
Print data redirection of a color to any available print head. The active print head can be selected for special film printers which are charged with multiple K cartridges.
Ink level adjustment. Linearization per channel, includes the dot gain limitation. Ink reduction curves for variable adjustment of the ink values to tonal values. Multiple output and measure steps for a linearization optimization; Each with recalculation of the linearization curve.
Super Rosette 2
Acurate AM supercell screening with predefined offset printing angles.
Hybrid Screen 2
Hybrid screen uses AM supercell screening with predefined offset printing angles for three color separations and one FM screening for the fourth color separation.
State-of-the-art stochastic screen for offset printing.
Freely definable AM screening settings: Angles, frequencies and dot shapes.
