EyeC Releases New Artwork Inspection Software

EyeC, Hamburg, Germany, a maker of artwork and print inspection systems, has announced global availability of ProofText, its new highly automated web-based text inspection software. ProofText is designed for initial artwork proofreading and revision control to assist creative agencies, prepress service providers, pharmaceutical manufacturers, FMCG companies, as well as label and packaging printers in accelerating the artwork creation and prepress process, shortening proofreading time and avoiding costly mistakes.

Dominique Elsen, EyeC product manager stated that ProofText provides up to 50% faster total inspection time than comparable systems on the market due to the highly automated text matching process, best-in-class usability and an efficient evaluation. The core functionality of ProofText is comparing manuscripts to initial artwork documents like PDF or others to find and evaluate differences.

ProofText’s intuitive usability, intelligent algorithm and innovative user interface together with easy-to-use tools allows any user to inspect and evaluate complex documents and artwork in an efficient way at any place, without extensive training. The quick check prevents gross errors in advance and avoids upcoming costs.

ProofText is developed especially for text-heavy and multilingual artwork on products such as folding boxes, labels, leaflets, booklets and flexible packaging. To ensure quality right from the artwork creation phase, live text (Unicode) from manuscript and briefing files (Word, HTML, QRD templates and more) is compared with the initial artwork file or proof (PDF). The artwork revision control cycle is reduced by comparing live text of a PDF vs. PDF with different revisions.

Text content checked by ProofText includes differences caused by deleted, inserted or changed text as well as deviations in text styles (bold, italic, size and font type). Multiple pages, documents, file formats and languages can be checked simultaneously in one pass.

Virtual demonstrations are available.
