PANTONE® Colour Matching

Easy Job Management

ONYX PosterShop increases your productivity by giving you flexible control over job workflow. PosterShop includes support for two printers with multiple Hot Folders (used for setting job properties). Print directly from your creative applications or drag and drop jobs into the appropriate Hot Folder. When the system detects an available printer matching the job properties, printing begins automatically.

Scale, Crop, Rotate, and Apply Custom Tiling to Images

  • ONYX Preflight contains professional tools that allow you to perform difficult tasks easily and with consistent results from one job to the next. Interactive sizing, cropping, and custom tiling, as well as full pan and zoom, instantly show on your display.

Ink Usage Tracking and Reporting

  • PosterShop Version 7 allows you to obtain ink usage and cost estimates on any job before printing. You can also view ink costs in the RIP-Queue’s job log. This innovative feature reports the usage and estimated cost for each ink channel and works with all dot patterns.

Make Colour Corrections on the Fly

  • Adapt easily and quickly to your customers’ subjective view of colour. Novice and expert users alike will find an intuitive colour correction toolset that allows for quick and easy changes in the PosterShop interface. Change brightness, saturation, and contrast for the image globally or for individual mid-tones and shadows. View up to four colour filters at once to compare changes, or select a specific colour (or a range of colours) and replace it with another to refine even the most difficult prints all without touching the original file.

Preflight Puts It All at Your Fingertips

  • Preflight is easy to navigate and easy to use because key actions and controls are located in the main tabs. Preflight also shows you final output colours on your screen, saving you the hassle of having to print in order to see the final colours of each job.
