Colour management solution provider X-Rite and its subsidiary Pantone have entered an agreement with US-based packaging firm HAVI Global Solutions (HGS).

Under the partnership, HGS will support the PantoneLIVE ecosystem for digital colour communications as part of ColorSentry, a web-based print and colour quality management solution.

HGS Graphics Commercialisation director Jay Sperry said: "With a complex, global packaging supply chain, brand owners need to ensure that colour and branding guidelines remain consistent across multiple geographic locations, packaging substrates, and printing technologies.

"Through our partnership with X-Rite Pantone, we are now able to offer all of our ColorSentry customers a secure way to access the latest Pantone Color Standards that are being utilised by packaging designers.

"This links the packaging supply chain to the creative intent of brand owners and ensures that colour is managed to deliver predictable, reliable, and consistent print quality."

The new print quality management solution incorporates a software and hardware suite, and has been designed to characterise, calibrate, and verify a brand’s print supply chain.

In addition, the solution provides live reporting on significant process indicators for enhanced graphic reproduction and print quality.

X-Rite Pantone product portfolio manager Iain Pike said: "More than one thousand ColorSentry customers now have access to a PantoneLIVE license and can begin incorporating digital Pantone standards in their packaging workflows.

"From design, artwork creation, proofing, production, to quality control, PantoneLIVE guarantees that each person in the workflow is using the correct Pantone reference and can achieve the desired colour based on substrate and printing process."
