FirstPROOF is the first thing I check, using FirstPROOF on the plates, we can check that the data was transferred properly (file size, bit depth, if RPS enabled, EPLT unavailability) and we can check if the user used the correct dark room parameters. We can also analyze the density profiles, contrast, saturation, tint and and highlight white and black areas.
This is a very important part of the RIP workflow, the quality of the plates is essential, first of all we need to know if the plates are digital or offset, in the case of digital we can analyse the work on the screen.
When printing on offset, the software has a pre-screening function to prepare the artwork on the computer for the offset. In the case of offset printing, if the data is not clean we can’t screen the plates (actually this is done on films or plates) and the jobs will be rejected, we can also check the sharpness of the image, to avoid blurring on the film.
In the case of film we can check if there is moire in the film, and the color is correct (warm or cool white balance) we can also check the chromalin of the film (light or dark), if we use variable light, we can check if the highlights are right, the shadow is right and the film looks ok.
If you have paper solutions, we can check if the gradients are ok, we can check the photographic paper, the brightness and contrast and all the settings are done.
FinalFirstPROOF is the last thing I check and this is very important, usually we think that in this case we check the plates, but it is more than that, we check that the plates are ok, everything was done as it should be, we can’t do any more testing if we have finished printing.
First of all we need to check all the settings, we can check the bit depth, the color, the dpi and the scaling, if we use high DPI we can check if the file is ok and we can check if all the settings were ok, because we have to remember that on large format printing the default settings may not be suitable, we may have to modify the settings, especially if we are using lots of different papers.
If we check the DPI we can see the size of the dots, in the case of large format we normally use 150 dpi, if we use 300 dpi or
Editing of the image after RIP, print combination and other processes, typically, users need to print the image and then need to check the content of the print, for example, how the lines are positioned, or if the print has some obvious flaws, such as a finger on it or a fold in the paper.
Editing is, however, not a suitable way to check the content of the printed output. This is because the print output is supposed to be final and any editing would have destroyed the quality of the image.
The reasons for checking the content of the output are many, but the most important ones are:
1. To make the best possible choice for the layout. As already mentioned, a print output is supposed to be a final printed product. If the user sees what the layout should be like, it is possible to make a better layout choice and save time and money and it is also possible to make an appropriate choice of print run size.
2. To detect flaws in the image, such as finger prints, facial features or any other flaws in the image.
3. The user may have forgotten to make changes to the layout and images, which will then be printed on a printed output, but which is different from the layout and images he wanted to use. This is one reason why the user needs to check the content.
4. There may be a problem with the print, such as a bad contact of the ink with the paper or with any other type of printing error, such as a damaged paper or plate. This type of problem can usually be detected quickly by simply viewing the printed output. However, these problems can also arise after the printing of the print and be undetectable by viewing the printed product.
5. There may be some other problems with the print and the image, for example the image may be of poor quality. This can be detected by viewing the printed output.
6. There may be some problems with the RIP or the operation of the RIP software. The user must be able to detect these problems quickly because, if a RIP or RIP software is the cause of the problem, it is necessary to change the RIP or software to make the print output as good as it can be.
7. This may be a test run to make sure the RIP and RIP software is working.
8. To check whether the images are valid.
9. To ensure that the layout has not been changed.
10. To check if any type of data has been
The FileFORMats Factory Software is designed to automate the conversion process of your film/plate negatives to Digital Film Data.
Imaging a plate using the FilmFORMats Factory Software will not only give you an image of your plate, but an audit log. It will also compare the content of your negative with your original film and create a chromalin.
The Audit Log gives you a report to assist you in carrying out an audit of all your negatives, meaning you can check if all negatives have been created, which negatives should be flipped or rotated and which negatives need repair.
Note: The software is a powerful tool that can be used by anyone. In your audit log, you can decide whether to carry out a repair, apply a chromalin, or discard a negative.
Do you need more information about the Audit Log? Click here.
A chromalin can be made from your film data. This is helpful in the case of a film that may have been slightly damaged, or which you suspect may have missed some parts.
The chromalin will contain all the information from the film and will allow you to complete an original print from your negative data, in the same way as if you had made a master from your original film and now only have a negative to work with.
The chromalin will contain the information from the negative. All of the negative information is included, such as the type of film used, size of frame, original scanning properties, etc. The chromalin is usually a better quality copy than a scanned negative.
FirstPROOF is a powerful audit tool that can help you with your RIP workflow.
It is also the only software that can use data from all your film formats, and will allow you to audit them all at once.
FileFORMats Factory Software is available for Mac OS X.
FileFORMats Factory is a multi-format negative and film convertor with audit log.
It uses a unique record compression algorithm to create an image and audit log for you in one pass.
It can also convert your film data to Digital Film Data.
This Software is compatible with Mac OS X 10.4 or later.
A chromalin can be created from your Film data.
A chromalin allows you to create an original print from your negative data in the same way as if you had made a master from your original film and now only have a negative to work with.

Mitsubishi LASERBRAY PRO PLATE FIRSTPROOF SP100
LASERBRAY SP100 is a software package designed to make processing, reading and printing of LaserBray’s new LaserBray Pro Plate FirstPROOF. With the help of this software you can make many different improvements to your LaserBray print or envelope production.
The LASERBRAY SP100 has two interfaces, one is the standard interface that works like the normal LASERBRAY. The SP100 then communicates with the controller and the plate.
LaserBray SP100 includes many of the functions from the LASERBRAY, the functions that are not included are:
– Auto Plate Calibration
– Print Tuning and Optimisation
– Color Correction for B&W Prints
The output from the SP100 is still a true print image as the output is processed in the normal LASERBRAY system.
What’s New in this release:
This release includes only the very necessary and requested changes.
SpieT is a free, easy to use, intuitive interface for workflow and control. The SPIE is the new standard for plate imaging and handling in an Digital Production Center.
