  • The color difference is quantified and represented as ΔE value. Specific value can standardize the level of color difference.
  • Thanks to specific values, there is no need to print out image many times for color matching. Time and cost are considerably saved.

On the job list, thumbnail index is displayed and you can quickly recognize the required job.As the set conditions can be checked sensuously on the preview window, you can perform the work smoothly even if you operate for the first time.


Job list preview/display of thumbnail images is easy to understand.



You can check the layout view, rotation, scaling up/down, mirror view and also the arrangement of multiple one jobs.

Arrangement of multiple jobs reducing the waste of the media

Multiple different jobs can be freely laid out on the same media and printed.This can decrease the waste of the media and shorten the working time.

Possible to set more than one virtual printer
