Remote Director 3.6.1
ICS (Integrated Color Solutions) has announced an update of its color technology and collaborative proofing software, Remote Director 3.6.1. The cross-platform app has been given over a dozen new features in v3.6.1, with upgrades including comparisons of images for content, annotation reports, status reports, better e-mail notifications and better Pantone library access. Permissions and quality assurance have been improved with user- and group-approval settings for locking images, options for viewing participant sign-off status, and SWOP certification improvements.
The update further includes the ability to communicate with JUST Normlicht light booths, allowing simultaneous hard and soft collaborative proofing. Performance for large groups of images has been enhanced, with particular boosts on machines using Intel chips and ATI Radeon GPUs. The Pantone installer in v3.6.1 additionally supports Goe Uncoated mode.
Remote Director requires company contact for information on pricing and downloads. The software runs on systems with Mac OS X 10.4 or higher and 1GB of RAM, but only certain displays from the likes of Apple and Eizo are certified for SWOP work.
