Check Digital Films and Plates
DotSpy is a powerful quality assurance tool for Mac that allows you to check digital films
and plates. Plates and films can be opened and viewed extremely fast, even if the data is not on the same
computer as DotSpy. Viewing capabilities are very elaborate. Zooming up to dot level and
measuring screen ruling, dot angles, distances, etc. allows quality control departments to find
errors before the actual plate imaging.
DotSpy means elaborate viewing
One plate or separation can be viewed as black-and-white, in its own separation color, negative
or positive, flipped and rotated, etc.
Separation colors are picked up automatically from the Nexus plate information
and DotSpy can accomodate viewing of opaque separations like metallic inks.
More than one separation can be viewed simultaneously in color or black-and-white as one job
or as separate plates. Viewing plates in synchronized mode allows you to checkout the same area
on different plates at the same time, for easy comparison. In real life this feature is often
used for comparing different plates in versioning workflows eg. two black plates for one job.
Seamless data of cylinders or sleeves can be viewed with a infinite join for
checking seamless screening.
Checking trapping and dots in full confidence
Zooming on plates is really fast and in no time the operator can checkout
the traps on the file, the screening type, the line ruling and the angle of the screen. No more
worries about what dot gain curve has been applied by simply measuring the density of the screening.
