Details of Colour Management Functions

As Wisp-PS is a modular and multi-device system, its colour management has been expanded to include direct ICC profile linking. Wisp-PS has ColorBlind ICC Profiles for all the devices it supports and it uses the ColorBlind Colour Management Engine to render these ICC profiles.The ColorBlind Colour Manangement Engine allows you to take any ICC profiles and dynamically link them on the RIP to create you own comprehensive colour library. This facility separately corrects RGB Lineart, CMYK Lineart, RGB Bitmap and CMYK Bitmap components even when they are on the same page. We also provide base profiles and links for users and dealers who do not want to tackle colour themselves.
