Color Concepts launches ColorBase.com - The Largest Database of Print Profiles

Color Concepts has launched ColorBase.com an online platform that acts as a one-stop resource for print shops and converters.

It features a growing number of powerful colour tools and rich video content that customers can use to improve their print performance regardless of their location. Registration and membership are free to all. 
 
The platform includes a searchable, centralized collection of print profiles for the Large Format Print Industry. Profiles (encoded sets of print parameters that ensure optimal print results for a particular combination of material, ink, printer, RIP software, and print mode) are typically only available via material/printer manufacturers, meaning that print shops and converters currently juggle a variety of profile sources in their day-to-day work. “ColorBase.com’s Profile Search tool is simply unprecedented,” says Andr√© Venter, ColorBase.com Product Manager and Development Lead, “by building a powerful, sophisticated, and centralized profile library we are creating an unmatched level of convenience for print and sign shops. For the first time ever, these users can find the profiles they need on a single platform - all for free.” 
 
ColorBase.com offers the largest collection of publicly available print profiles currently available. Print shops can browse over 1 million profiles across a total of 3400 print media on the ColorBase platform. 


Alongside its profile library, ColorBase.com also features a growing collection of product videos and tutorials and is the home of Let’s Talk, the Color Concepts’ industry talk show hosted by CEO Marco Roos. Access to these tools and videos are free and will continue to be.
 
The colour and material information included in ColorBase’s impressive profile library is versatile. On this foundation of ‘structured data’, Color Concepts is building an entire suite of both free and premium tools that print shops can use to optimize their print performance. Upcoming features offered on ColorBase.com include an ICC Creator that users will be able to operate directly in their browser, and E-Learning functionality so that anyone in the industry can work through courses and improve their skills.
 
Color Concepts has set standards in profiling, print material testing, media certification programs, education, and consulting since its inception in 2003. Color Concepts’ ColorBase ecosystem includes connected software products and services. In addition to the training, testing, and consulting services from its renowned Print Labs in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, and Salt Lake City, Utah, Color Concepts connects innovators across the industry with ColorBase Exchange, ColorBase.com, ColorBase Studios, and more.
