ProofMaster is the most complete and performant Digital color proofing RIP for Graphic Arts & Pre-press Professionals. ProofMaster solves many ot the problems previously found in digital proofing.

All incoming jobs (presepareted or composite) are converted into a high res PDF. Once your proof is approved, you can send the same PDF used for the proof, to the imagesetter, minimizing the risk of a PostScript error.

ProofMaster lets you drive 2 different printers at the same time and for each of these 2 printers you can set up 8 different queues.

The softproof application lets you view your image in high res on screen. You can apply a color profile in order to softproof your color calibrated result. From the ProofMaster viewer, you can perform a wide range of image manipulations such as: enlarge, reduce, copy, crop, rotate, mirror, nesting, step & repeat, etc.

All prints made with this demo version will have a ProofMaster watermark on them.
