Monaco Releases MonacoProfiler 4.0

ICC manager supports Pantone Hexachrome By Dave Nagel
Monaco Systems today released MonacoProfiler 4.0, the latest incarnation of the company's Macintosh-based ICC profiling application. MonacoProfiler 4.0 now offers support for LCD flat panel displays; profiling of digital cameras using the GretagMacbeth ColorChecker DC Color Reference Chart; and support for true multi-ink (5-6-7-8 color) profiles, including Pantone Hexachrome, enabling profile editing, soft proofing and orange and green separation.

MonacoProfiler is targeted toward higher-end print businesses, including service bureaus, newspapers and large-format print vendors. The software allows users to create ICC profiles for digital cameras, scanners, monitors and printers. Users can select the number of patches to measure (up to 3,000) when building an output profile and can also build device-linked profiles.


Users to manipulate the lightness, saturation and output curves or a device and make selective color adjustments to a range of colors. The company says that as output devices "drift," MonacoProfiler's relinearization option "permits users to update their profiles without going through the entire measurement process again."

MonacoProfiler also provides users with options to control the maximum black and total ink, as well as customize the UCR/GCR curves.

MonacoProfiler 4.0 runs $4,250. Upgrades from 3.0 or later cost $995. Upgrades from versions prior to 3.0 cost $2,500. For more information, visit http://www.monacosys.com.
