Colour Inspection

GlobalVision Colour Inspection is the first digital inspection solution for colour management for PDFs and printed components. The tool inspects colours and reports any differences outside a defined colour threshold. Instead of manually checking colours by eye, users can detect and communicate colour differences with colour reports alongside their proofs for approval.

Bringing colour approvals into a digital system means faster colour approvals, more accurate measurements, and proof of recorded locations with colour reports. Further, GlobalVision has partnered with Pantone to deliver colour information in the industry standards companies depend on every day. Any colour inspections will show the next closest pantones for fast colour decision making.

Confirm colour accurately with pinpoint precision and send Colour Inspection reports for approval using GlobalVision. Ensure you’re printing the correct colours with confidence.

Verify Colour-Space Values at Every Point

Find the perfect shade and verify color accuracy anywhere on the actual artwork. Measure individual color space values and inspect the same point on all repeats.


Multiple Built-in Pantone Books

Navigate through a huge library of colors using an easy-to-access drop-down menu. Switch seamlessly between different Pantone books to find the right color, as GlobalVision boasts an extensive library of colors ranging from metallics to pastels.


LAB, CMYK, and RGB…and Pantone Values

Get the closest matches of any point and see precise LAB, CMYK, and RGB color-space values with a single click. Use them as a simple reference or choose one to replace the selected color in the inspection instead.


Customizable Delta-E

Change the tolerance level from point to point to be as strict as you need when detecting differences. With a customizable Delta-E value, Color Inspection flags a point whenever it falls out of that pre-set range, so you know where to focus your attention.

While the branding of a label on a package is of high importance for any industry manufacturer, focusing only on the branding design and not taking care of the crucial info can result in small to huge errors which can ruin a great package design. The effects of label errors go beyond label recalls and financial losses. In a complex industry such as pharma and medical devices, it can go as far as the loss of human life. Because unclear or erred medication instructions are a huge risk for patient safety. This is why the US FDA is continually maintaining a high level of regulations when it comes to drug packaging. Patient safety is always the main point of focus.

A company may need to maintain its business, branding and marketing goals; but human life is way more important. So, organisations need to find balance. A way to have their brand stand out, but also to prioritise the safety and usage instructions. These things get tough when translation is involved. Because the entire label needs to be translated into a natural, understandable language. Additionally, product packages being exported to different countries, also need to adhere to the ever-evolving industry regulations worldwide. Another challenge faced by the industry is the use and the amount of available space. A label needs to be small or big enough to fit a container appropriately and to contain all of the information required by a regulatory organization, which often depends on the country a package is being exported to.


A clearly defined label design workflow

A great starting point for changing and introducing automation into the packaging and labeling workflow is the FDA Safety Considerations guidelines document. The document contains the suggestions for safety precautions on label design and guidance on what information is regulatory and what is advised. By defining a clear project scope for a label production workflow and creating a checklist approved by all stakeholders, a label production process can run much smoother and stay on track with the milestones and deadlines. It’s important to always keep in mind that manual artwork proofing and inspection takes much more time and is prone to human error. Pharma and Medical Device companies need to stay up to date with the latest automation novelties.


It’s also crucial that a clear strategy is defined for introducing the change and automating the packaging and label production workflow in order to speed up the process and reduce label errors. Finally, whether printing is being done in-house or outsourced, the label production stakeholders and the printing stakeholders need to carry out the printing inspection on both ends. They must double check and verify the approved artwork PDF against the Printer Proof, in order to eliminate all label printing errors. GlobalVision is the world leader in the design of innovative proofreading technologies. Their solutions have been integrated into the packaging workflows of leading consumer packaged goods companies, printing firms and over 70% of the top pharmaceutical companies worldwide.

Global Vision, a world leader in the design and delivery of innovative automated proofreading technologies, has announced its new and improved all-in-one Quality Control Platform. This technology has been called “streamlined and more efficient than ever,” and has been designed to keep businesses error-free. This is the first time Global Vision technologies have been combined into a single, unified application for desktop deployment. It gives clients easy access to every intuitive Global Vision inspection tool while removing unnecessary steps and reducing downtime. This first generation of its updated proofreading solution includes a range of key improvements – from using Adobe as a PDF generation.
