MediaCheck Medium – Stand-alone solution
Products & Services | tec4check GmbH
The ‘middle’ MediaCheck package is designed to run on standalone Windows or Mac OSX platforms but adds capability for parallel checks to run in ‘background’ mode while the user interface remains fully available at all times.
This allows MediaCheck Medium users to take advantage of additional benefits:
- Ability to work on further tests while earlier ones are still processing
- Ability to store Jobs, so that the user can go back to earlier results
- Ability to add further samples to existing jobs
MediaCheck Medium offers the same core artwork and text proofing power as Workflow, but is packaged as a compact, easy-to-learn and cost-efficient single user package, focusing on sequential processing, one test at a time. This is a conventional stand-alone solution with a streamlined easy-to-use interface that guides the user through each step in the proofing process.
All versions of MediaCheck allow the comparison of multiple ups (multiple copies of the same reference or different references) that are automatically located, rotated and identified.
Versions and Expansion
MediaCheck Medium can be used in two versions:
In digital mode, MediaCheck Medium Digital can be used to check and compare PDF files (source versus scanned image saved to PDF).
In professional mode, Medium can also be used to compare PDF files against ‘raw’ scanned images and other raster images.
While PDF files are intended to have the same appearance everywhere, a print on paper or other material is something very different from a computer file. The Professional version of MediaCheck Medium allows the content of a PDF file to be compared against the scan of printed media. Our software filters out all format differences to isolate only the deviations from original prepress design.
For print inspection, MediaCheck Medium Professional supports scanners up to A3 size, including those designed to handle very light media (e.g. paper for leaflets).
MediaCheck Medium can have the following expansion:
Both versions of MediaCheck Medium accept the up-loadable MediaCheck expansion multi-page module designed for checking of booklets and leaflets. This allows multi-page PDF files to be compared against multiple samples in one single process.
