Quality Assurance Module (QAM)


The QAM is a quality assurance system for the digital imaging market, fully integrated into the ColorGATE RIP software, that allows controlling and documenting color consistency and archiving the results.

Based on proven control wedge technology, the QAM saves costs and reduces production time. In addition, the QAM ensures high customer satisfaction due to consistently high quality of printing results.

QAM already controls quality of the printing result during production workflow. In the QAM user dialog, predefined and measured values of the color control wedge are displayed in a clearly structured table.

A simple traffic light symbol (green, yellow, red) clearly indicates the quality of the document to be printed. In combination with ColorGATE Media Device Synchronization (MDS) recalibration technology, QAM becomes a powerful quality assurance tool.

QAM is flexible in the definition of quality tolerances and therefore suitable for nearly any application. The usage of the module is intuitive and provides an easy and time-saving workflow.
