On October 4th 2018, FOGRA organized and hosted the world’s first comparison test for state of the art multicolor solutions, which allowed ColorLogic GmbH along with several other providers to test their solutions in up to five categories using actual print samples and a controlled offset printing process. ColorLogic opted to participate in all five categories and overall had very successful results. The five categories included Multicolor Characterization, Proofing, Spectral Color Prediction, Separation of high saturated RGB Images, and conversion of Spot Colors to Multicolor.
This Multicolor Forum not only provided a platform for testing and comparisons of various solutions, but it also showed in which areas multicolor technology has improved. As FOGRA stated at the conclusion of the event, "Multicolor technology has left its infancy". It also became clear the areas in the industry’s technology that could stand to see some additional development. As a collective, it was evident that in the area of spectral predictions some improvements in technology can be made for better results. Vendors showed quite similar results with ColorLogic in the top group.
Additionally, in the area of spot color separation to multicolor, the ColorLogic solution was among the top results in regards to color accuracy, lowest graininess and minimal amount of channels needed to simulate the spot colors. The topic of overprints in PDFs and the conversion of spot color tints was not explicitly tested in this forum but may be a topic in a possible next Forum to come. There will be enhancements that will also be seen in one of ColorLogic’s upcoming major software releases. When converting spot color tints, the tints can optionally be converted with respect to SCTV (ISO 20654).
This opportunity to test ColorLogic’s technology in the forum was very eye opening on many levels and showed strengths, but also areas for improvement to further meet market requirements and to make our user experience the best it can be, while contributing to progressing the industry’s technology.

Grafix World appointed distributor for color management software for Latin America
We would like to inform you that we are now working with CrossXColor, Inc., partner of the German based ColorLogic GmbH, developer of high quality color management solutions. We take on the task of Master Distributor for products such as CoPrA, ZePrA, DocBees, DLS and ColorAnt for Latin America.
Partnership of technology provider and value-added distributor
CrossXColor adds a wide range of high quality color solutions to our product portfolio, perfectly complementing the range of solutions we represent. We started our discussion for distribution back in January of this year with CrossXColor about a possible partnership, we were immediately impressed by the quality of the products, although we were already told by a good source, that these were the best products available in the market today. There are not more reliable people out there; knowledgeable technical team that continuously improves the products and searches for new solutions for customers in day-to-day color reproduction.
Barbara Braun-Metz, CEO at CrossXColor summarizes: ”We believe that Grafix World who serves the Printing and Publishing industry in Latin America and the Caribbean with its large distribution network, is the perfect match as they start, where our work stops; adding value in marketing our products and offering not only sales but also training and support to their clients and dealers. They have proven their skills and market knowledge with other solutions and we appreciate that Grafix World decided to add our products to their portfolio.”
Profiling, converting, saving ink... and much more
Cross X Color has a range of powerful and high-quality color management solutions built on open standards such as ICC and DeviceLink profiles. The solutions work on Mac and Windows and combine ease-of-use with powerful advanced features.
Color management can be very complicated, but our experience is that customers simply want their production to work smoothly with as little distraction as possible. The CrossXColor solutions are unique because they streamline setup and maintenance by using powerful wizards with built-in intelligence while still allowing advanced customization by color experts.
CoPrA is the solution for color profiling in RGB, CMYK and multi-color workflows used to create and optimize printer profiles, DeviceLink color conversion settings and ink saving setups. ZePrA is a high-end, easy-to-use color management server; it makes it easy to standardize incoming files, convert PDF/X files to different printing conditions and reduce TAC or implement ink saving amongst other tasks. ColorAnt inspects, visualizes and corrects measurement data coming from measurement devices allowing to create much better printer and DeviceLink profiles. The DocBees product range completes the product line-up and offers profile management, allows re-profiling (iterative quality improvements of existing profiles) and automatic discovery of what color space was used in untagged documents.
