We are sure that our customers will be pleased to see that modern colour measurement instruments offer speed, accuracy and ease-of-use at the same time. This is a perfect match to the new features we integrated into ONYX 12.1 to improve the productivity for our customers”, says Bryan Manwaring, Director of Product Marketing at Onyx Graphics.

“Since we introduced the first M1-instruments to the printing industry, more and more users benefit from our innovative technology. The FD-9 turns out to be the must-have tool for efficient colour management for every printing house. We are very happy that now all ONYX users can improve their colour workflow,” says Claas Bickeböller, Product Manager Graphic Arts at Konica Minolta Sensing.
