Binuscan products are sold worldwide through an international network of distributors, have earned an excellent reputation and won many trade awards. They are used on all five continents by prepress professionals including many well-known newspapers and magazines.
Used worldwide by the largest daily newspapers, Binuscan solutions offer a complete product range adressing production needs of printers, newspapers, publishers and photographers.
CMS Server is designed for ink optimization of newspaper and commercial print. It checks and optimize every element, including the advertisements, inside the page before it goes to the press.
Print Accurate Colors & Save 30% Ink!
30% savings on color ink
For each printing dot, Binuscan CMS Server searches the press profile for the different CMYK formulations matching the desired Lab value, and selects the most cost effective ink formulation. Furthermore, it improves the quality of your overall print. Crisp advertisements, no more ink smearing and endless debates with your advertising agencies about the quality of their ad.
Print accurate and matching colors
Without Binuscan CMS Server, your customers’ files will be printed differently on coated or uncoated paper, or on different presses. Each print dot in a CMYK file is made of Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black values and each of these have a corresponding value in the reference Lab color space. A proof is called ISO/Fogra 39 certified when the printed colors, measured in Lab using a spectrophotometer, match the Lab values in the original file set to this standard.
A certified proof shows the “right colors”
Without Binuscan CMS Server, CMYK values will have a different colorimetric rendering on every different press and paper, since the Lab references are not used. Binuscan CMS Server guarantees accurate colors, within the ISO 12647 standard, even if the PDF files you have to print were not prepared by qualified professionals (Microsoft Word or PowerPoint files etc).
New profile and workflow in 15 minutes
In 15 minutes only, your new profile and workflow is ready and available on your local network! All you need to do is drop PDF files. They will be automatically optimized for your printing system. This ease of use is made possible by the high-end technology at the heart of CMS Server. Starting from strict spectrophotometric data from the printed target, the system auto-parameters for each specific case, without requiring a qualified operator with color management knowledge and experience.
Improve productivity & reduce paper waste
In offset printing, ink saving will allow for an immediate gray balance, more brilliant colors, reduction of metamerism and printing with less water for a faster and more consistent print run, faster drying, and less paper waste.
With CMS Server, the gray balance is achieved much easier, while the color balance is stabilized automatically through the usage of more black ink, which is color neutral and with the result of a major reduction in start up waste.
IPM Workflow is a hot-folder driven image processing solution that is the heart of image production in prepress departments. Its design is to eliminate or greatly reduce manual processing and retouching by automating enhancement and color tasks.
High Quality Images – Automatically!
Each day, in a prepress department, you are faced with a very real challenge: that of maintaining the quality of your documents despite the questionable quality of some of the pictures you receive. Production must be on time in an environment that requires greater productivity from its employees.
Binuscan’s Image Processing Machine, or IPM for short is a hot-folder driven image processing solution that is the heart of image production in prepress departments. Its design is to eliminate or greatly reduce manual processing and retouching by automating most of the required enhancement tasks, color management and geometric transformations.
The process begins with incoming image enhancement. A patented technology called RECO Technology gives all images a full color range, optimal color balance; provides them with just the right amount of contrast, saturation and sharpening. Unique RECO settings are prepared for each input source.
Images that have been processed with RECO Technology undergo a histogram transformation, which results in full-range histograms. After a RECO process, the histogram always covers the full range with no gaps in any of the channels. If the original has no information loss (clipped histogram edges) then the resulting image’s histogram edges will contain only what is required for sharpening.
In addition to image enhancement through RECO Technology, the IPM can perform multiple color corrections and color space changes through either proprietary technology or ICC profiles. Proprietary color tables can perform RGB corrections and conversion to CMYK, and ICC profiles can perform conversions to and from any of the RGB, CMYK and grayscale working spaces.
