PowerDriver® is the most advanced colour management software available for selected desktop sublimation solutions.
Developed specifically for use with SubliJet IQ, SubliJet-R and SubliJet-E (Epson 7700 only) printing solutions, this FREE user-friendly software delivers enhanced functionality and a higher level of colour output and allows to easily achieve accurate, brilliant colour output, print after print.
The most-advanced and easy-to-use color and print management software just got better with the release of PowerDriver™ 4. Now users of SubliJet-R® for Ricoh SG 3110DN and SG 7100DN sublimation systems have access to more functions and features than ever before, including:
Custom Pre-Sets in Action
A key new feature for PowerDriver™ 4 is Custom Pre-Sets, which allow the user to easily select multiple variables for any given job. These include: type of substrate, media size, paper brand, and color settings. The user can then save their selections with a custom file name for easy retrieval on future jobs. The end result is a huge savings in production time and image accuracy for each and every job.
A relatively simple, but extremely useful new function is Visual Tool Tips. By hovering the mouse over any control button in PowerDriver™ 4, a caption appears on the screen explaining what the button does.
Color controls have been significantly improved to provide more visual control of image print files. In addition to applying pre-configured color management settings, users can now adjust the color hue, contrast, brightness and saturation via convenient sliders that make it easy to fine-tune the exact amount of each variable. The final result can be saved as a custom pre-set.
Along with updated color controls, PowerDriver™ 4 includes a new ColorSure Palette and ColorSure Spot Color Matching Wizard to assist users in attaining critical color matches.
The New ColorSure Spot Color Matching Wizard with Active Visual Tool Tip
The ColorSure Palette has been streamlined and updated to provide more relevant and useful colors, matched to standard colors used in the graphic arts industry. The new selective ColorSure Color selector ensures only the needed colors are applied to the artwork, so gradients and other sections of the image will remain unaffected.
The all-new ColorSure Spot Color Matching Wizard provides a powerful, easy-to-use tool for identifying, validating and saving critical spot colors to the color sure palette. Once a new color has been created, it can easily be saved via the custom pre-set function, and the resulting file can be uploaded for use with CorelDRAW or Adobe CS
