Monaco Announces GamutWorks

Profile analysis tool allows for the visualization and evaluation of ICC profiles By Dave Nagel
Monaco Systems today introduced GamutWorks, a profile analysis tool allows for the visualization and evaluation of ICC profiles. The utility is designed as a complement to Monaco's existing color management tools and will be included in the latest releases of MonacoProof, MonacoProfiler Gold and MonacoProfiler Platinum, all of which are available for Mac OS 9, Mac OS X and Windows.

Using GamutWorks, device color gamuts can be plotted in 2D and 3D views simultaneously for comparison of device gamuts. It can identify and display colors that are out of gamut and can help users select the most appropriate rendering intent and view the capabilities of color devices.


Monaco says GamutWorks is included now with MonacoProof, MonacoProfiler Gold and MonacoProfiler Platinum. MonacoProof is used to create RGB and CMYK color profiles and includes basic editing tools. MonacoProfiler Gold offers expanded editing tools. And MonacoProfiler Platinum offers all of the features of both packages with support for up to eight colors and the ability to profile digital cameras.

In related news, Monaco has also announced additional language support for its color management tools. MonacoProof, MonacoProfiler Gold and MonacoProfiler Platinum now include support for German, French, Spanish and Japanese, in addition to English. The company has also added French support for MonacoEZcolor and MonacoOptix, in addition to English and Japanese.

At press time, Monaco did not have information on its site regarding GamutWorks, though in a press release the company said current users can download the utility. MonacoProof 3.7 sells for $1,650; MonacoProfiler Gold 4.6 sells for $2,950; and MonacoProfiler Platinum 4.6 sells for $4,250. The MonacoEZcolor/MonacoOptix bundle runs $548.
