Datacolor, a global leader in colour management solutions, has announced the beta release of CloudQC Viewer, a SaaS colour quality control (QC) application designed to assist colour professionals with the evaluation of digital colour samples from anywhere, at any time.
The CloudQC Viewer application is part of Datacolor’s digital cloud platform. It is a simple, user friendly, on-demand QC application for anyone looking to evaluate colour digitally. This release can import QTX files, display colour patches and colorimetric data, and allow collaboration on evaluation results. Future releases will include features like data storage and device connectivity.
“COVID-19 accelerated the need for a more flexible way to manage colour, increasing demand for digitalisation and the ability to work remotely.” said Albert Busch, President and CEO, Datacolor. “To meet the changing needs of colour professionals, we decided to design an easy-to-use, cloud-based quality control solution enabling users to evaluate and manage colour accurately from anywhere, at any time. We are excited to bring CloudQC Viewer to the market today. This beta version will be free, and we are eager to gather user feedback to further develop this application in line with customer needs.”
The CloudQC Viewer gives colour generalists including users who have no digital colour management processes in place, the freedom and ability to work wherever their colour evaluation job takes them, whether at home, in the office or on the road.
“I could start using the CloudQC immediately for lap dip evaluations. It will speed communication with my internal teams,” said Amber Ross, Quality Assurance Specialist at Cintas, a Datacolor customer. “Sharing digital files instead of printouts will improve the process and reduce carbon footprint.”
