    Curve3 Ships -- May 2013

    The latest version of the Curve software is now available as of May 2013. Curve2 has been discontinued and replaced with Curve3.

    Ease of G7 Implementation

    Over 50 new functions and features have been added to Curve2, enhancing the intuitive interface of IDEAlink Curve to further simplify the G7 calibration process and improve its effectiveness. From basic pre-qualification tools that verify ink and paper colors, to conformance metrics for NPDC and gray balance, Curve2 elevates the whole process of G7 calibration and monitoring.

    All aspects of a G7 calibration are contained in a new document format capable of holding a series of related press runs in one single file. Successive press runs are linked to previous runs so that Curve2 can accurately calculate new curves based on previous curves, perform run-to-run checks, and qualify how accurately a particular run or sample meets the G7 definition.

    NEW Virtual Press Run Module:

    Without VPR, obtaining a press profile from a G7-calibrated press requires at least two press runs; one with null plate curves to calculate the G7 calibration curves, and a second to print the profiling target through the resulting plate curves to profile the press.

    VPR normally eliminates the need for the second press run. The G7 curves calculated from the first run are applied mathematically to the profiling target measurements of the first run, producing measurements that appear as if they were produced on a second "virtual" run.

    Software to Simplify G7 Calibration of Proofing and Plate-Making Systems

    • Generate dot %-based correction values for most popular RIPs
    • Compare your press or proofing system to GRACoL 7 and SWOP
    • Qualify individual proofs as often as you like
    • Curve2 is your link to simple G7™ implementation. Easily calibrate and verify all your systems without the tedium and uncertainty of manual curve drawing.

    Gather Data

    • Input P2P target readings from your measurement software and automatically average data from multiple targets with IDEALink Curve. Then, see a real-time comparison of your measured curves to GRACoL 7 or SWOP specifications (3-Tone Gray NPDC, Black NPDC, Gray balance).


    See a real-time comparison of your measured curves to GRACoL 7 or SWOP specifications:

    • 3-Tone Gray NPDC
    • Black NPDC
    • Gray balance

    Compare your system (red) to the ideal G7 curve (green)

    Analyze Color

    Quickly check ink hue and chroma

    Compare TVI (dot gain) curves

    IDEAlink Curve provides graphical analysis of:

    • Gray Balance
    • TVI / Dot Gain
    • Ink Hue / Chroma

    Create Curves

    Automatically calculate RIP curve corrections as Absolute Tone Values or Delta Tone Values. As well as:

    • Use standard entry points for most popular RIPs
    • Add or subtract entry points for custom RIPs
    • Include or exclude gray balance corrections
    • Set target gray value manually or from paper white
