In-line Color Monitoring Solution for the Packaging, Labels and Metal Sheet Printing Markets


iDEal is an in-line advanced color monitoring module designed to effectively monitor color points and alert on any color deviations from the master throughout the print production process.


iDEal enables setting points of measurements anywhere on the printed web, setting tolerances in DeltaE values and measuring all the points, 100% of the time, in-parallel to your AVT print inspection platform.


iDEal’s display includes the current DeltaE of each measured point, a graphical view of the measured color, a color trend graph over time and a visual side to side display of the master color vs the current color


All the color measurements are recorded and displayed in AVT’s PrintFlow reporting system or can be exported afterwards for further analysis offline.




iDEal supports these AVT platforms:


  • Apollo Product Line
  • Argus Product Line
  • Jupiter Product Line
  • Helios Product Line
  • Titan Product Line
