Consistent digital colour proofs to a global standard
Delivering consistent colour accurate proofs used to be a costly, time-consuming process. For the first time ever, Canon’s renowned imagePRESS print systems allow you to deliver accurate, repeatable and measurable colour performance, accredited to a recognised global standard.

FOGRA are a leading independent voice in the establishment of recognised international standards. Working on behalf of the ISO, they have developed and introduced the new global standard for Validation Printing with digital devices, ISO 12647-7.

This means that they can work alongside your team, providing all the necessary expertise, technology, process improvement advice and guidance needed for you to attain the coveted ISO 12647-7 accreditation. Once established, the ongoing maintenance of your digital proofing system can then be handled by one of your trained operators, who can call on our support whenever required.
