Overview

Accurate proof predicting color and contents
Version 4.0
Released in May 2007


For many years in China Founder has been providing high quality software for page design, production, output and flexible workflow. At the end of 1999 Founder released a digital proof plug-in based on Founder EagleRIP to satisfy publishing requirements. Nowadays EagleRIP is widely used by printers, publishers, advertisers and design agencies.
With the development of new digital printers, in 2001 Founder launched EagleProof, a new generation of pre-RIP digital proofing software, to meet the rapidly increasing requirements of its customers. Since then Founder's innovative proofing software has been regularly enhanced. EagleProof uses its own RIP kernel and X-Rite's Color Management Module.

Founder EagleProof has the following features:

High Quality
EagleProof implements a new dot shape resulting from extensive research by Founder's R&D Centre. This new dot shape ensures smooth gradients and accurate reproduction.

Color Management
It adopts new color arithmetic. With the color management functionalities of EagleProof 4.0, users can easily and effectively take advantage of their existing proofing hardware to simulate the press environment.


Easy to Use
EagleProof puts all commonly used parameters together. Users can configure parameters quickly and very easily.

Last Minute Modification
EagleProof allows users to preview jobs, check parameters, and modify some of parameters
at the last minute prior to printing. If parameters are not correctly defined they may be modified instead of re-RIPping the file. The modified parameters can take effect immediately upon printing.

Fast Preview
There is a very fast Preview function. Founder EagleProof supports pre-RIPing and post-RIPing previews. With the preview function, you can zoom in, zoom out, and rotate. Auto Ganging
The auto ganging function automatically arranges the position of bitmaps on large size output paper, saving time, media and cost.

Spot Color Proofing
EagleProof allows facilitates spot colors. You can separately define, edit and calibrate individual spot colors.

Black Retain
With the Black Retain function, Founder EagleProof is able to print black areas with pure black ink, saving the cost of process color inks.

Color Tune
EagleProof provides a Color Tune function. Using Color Tune curves generated by the DotGain tool, users can conveniently implement fine adjustments to produce enhanced quality.

Network Printing
EagleProof supports direct printing from Macintosh® and Windows™ PCs through a network.

Hot Folder Printing
EagleProof provides an auto-print function. It will monitor Hot Folders that enable the auto-print function, locates files in the folders, and process them automatically.
