X-Rite, Incorporated (Nasdaq: XRIT) has introduced MonacoQCcolor version 1.5.
This update provides significant improvements to the performance of X-Rite's
software suite for verifying and analyzing color proofs in both local and remote
proofing environments.



Among other enhancements, the new version 1.5 incorporates a custom
label designer that allows users to customize the verification label
content for extended reporting capability. The redesigned server and
database structure improve stability and speed of data transmission over
the MonacoQCcolor network.



MonacoQCcolor software allows printers to define target printing
conditions, set the tolerances they wish to operate within, and quickly
measure print results for pass/fail analysis. The software has
applications across the imaging marketplace, in printing, graphic
design, fine art reproduction, and professional photography.



Available in both desktop and network versions, MonacoQCcolor 1.5 is
ideal for internal proof validation by printers who need to maintain a
high level of color consistency, as well as for remote proofing by
customers who need to ensure that their proofs meet specifications
before forwarding them to their printing vendor.



The desktop edition provides an easy to use pass/fail client and
includes industry-standard target and tolerance values for SWOP and
GRACoL printing. Users can buy X-Rite's ColorShop X software separately
to build custom workflow references.



Enhancements incorporated within MonacoQCcolor 1.5 include:

New label designer. In response to user requests, MonacoQCcolor 1.5
includes a built-in label designer to customize proof verification
stickers. Users can customize label size, as well as choose what target
attributes, graphics and text to include.



Upgraded server and database structure. The entire server and database
structures have been redesigned to deliver greater connection stability
and faster data retrieval.



Improved interface. The application interface has a cleaner look, yet remains
functionally similar to its predecessor. Consequently, users of MonacoQCcolor
1.4 will experience an easy transition to 1.5.



New administration tools. The administration tools have been segregated
from the server so users can now administer user privileges either on
the server or from a remote location without the need for additional
software. Built-in migration tools allow version 1.4 users to transfer
data easily into 1.5.



New sample database. For desktop edition users, the system comes with
updated GRACoL and SWOP references, as well as FOGRA target references,
to provide more industry standards to verify workflow against right out
of the box. Network users may load these sample targets into their
databases using the administration tools.



MonacoQCcolor 1.5 is also included within the Pulse QC Ensemble from
X-Rite, which bundles software with the Pulse Spectrophotometer --
X-Rite`s latest technology for measuring output. The Pulse QC Ensemble
provides all the necessary tools to ensure color consistency from job to
job.



MonacoQCcolor 1.5 is a free upgrade for current users. For more information visit:

Becker seized the opportunity to use the hand brake to manufacture stainless-steel developing trays for local photo labs and photographers. The trays caught on,and this new manufacturing side of the business grew to include tanks, sinks and print washers.

Eastman Kodak Company has introduced an array of new products and services--from
self-serve kiosks and digital capture solutions to professional photo services--at
the photokina show in Germany. Here's a summary of the news, details of
which, on some, will follow later.



New KODAK EASYSHARE Z710 Zoom Digital Camera combines advanced photographic features
with point-and-shoot simplicity. With a 7.1 megapixel image sensor and 10X optical
zoom, the Z710 model makes it simple to zoom and capture crisp shots that can
make high-quality prints up to 30 x 40 inches (76 x 102 cm).



New KODAK EASYSHARE Photo Printer 350 connects to camera phones for high-quality
prints. Using BLUETOOTH wireless technology, the Photo Printer 350 prints 4 x
6 photos directly from BLUETOOTH technology-enabled devices.



Enhanced KODAK PROFESSIONAL PORTRA color negative films underscore Kodak's
ongoing support of the professional photography market. The recently released
160VC, 160NC, 400VC and 400NC films in the PORTRA film family produce finer grain,
spectacular skin tones and improved scanning performance for greater enlargement
capability. (A report on these films will be in the December issue of Shutterbug.)




New KODAK KAF-10500 Image Sensor--developed specifically for the LEICA M8
digital camera--continues Kodak's legacy of offering high performance
imaging devices that result in low noise, high sensitivity and wide dynamic range.




New KODAK batteries for digital cameras maximize speed, performance and battery
life, resulting in an increase in the number of pictures consumers can take between
battery charges.

DigiGear, Inc.'s EZ3D Photo Print gives anyone the ability to take any
digital photo and turn it into a 3D photo in three EZ steps and in just minutes.
EZ3D Photo Print comes complete with everything you need to get started. (However,
you will need a Windows based computer, and photo-quality printer, and photo
paper works best.) At the center of the product is the EZ3D Photo Print software,
which is compatible with Windows 98, 2000, ME and XP operating systems. Once
loaded on the PC, all you have to do is to open the EZ3D software, select your
image you wish to make 3D and import the image into the EZ3D software. Then
the next step is to use the built-in rendering tool to outline the item in the
photo you wish to make 3D. After you have done this, all you do is hit "print"
and your EZ3D image will print out on your printer. Now just take this digital
print and mount it behind the included EZ3D Photo lens and place it in the EZ3D
frame and you now have your favorite EZ3D photo.
