April 10th 2007,--JUST Normlicht, a pioneer and leading manufacturer of devices for the visual evaluation of colors and surfaces for the graphic, photographic and textile industry, jointly with its software partner Color Solutions, renowned provider of calibration and profiling solutions for the graphic industry, presents "JUST Color Communicator - The Next Generation", the successor to the excellent "JUST Color Communicator2", which has been awarded many innovation prizes.
The reasons for a successor: Acceptance and innovation The high level of acceptance, confirmed in numerous discussions with international representatives from industry, the public sector and institutions, has stimulated Michael Gall, general manager of JUST Normlicht, to have the solution redesigned. The declared objective of the pioneer in light competence, according to Michael Gall, is to reinforce and extend the technological leadership. "The new JUST Color Communicator - TNG is a building block in achieving this. It should herald the next generation of light tables and set new standards. And all of this with an excellent cost-benefit relationship" according to Gall.
The first calibratable standard light box in the world: JUST Color Communicator2 has filled the gap existing up to now in color management workflow concerning the evaluation of colors. Equipped with a USB interface, the adJUST software solution controls the brightness of the standard light box and thus enables the equalizing of the representation of monitor and standard light boxes exactly with each other and this fully-automatically. Monitor representation and printout thus become comparable under correct light for the first time. With its presentation in Europe (Photokina) and in the U.S. (Graph Expo), it has caused a great sensation - both in industry and with users. JUST Normlicht, as hardware manufacturers and Color Solutions, developer of the basICColor software, have already been awarded initial distinctions such as the "Photokina Innovation Star".
Improvements & detail technologies: New design & components of the latest generation New Design - The design of the "JUST Color Communicator - The Next Generation", is completely new: The surface under consideration was designed as a hollow groove and a new reflector concept developed, where the light is distributed almost 100% uniformly over every location of the surface under consideration, and now dazzle and reflection are also completely excluded.
Components of the latest generation in employment - Significant optimization results from the utilization of fluorescent lamps of the latest generation (JUST Daylight 5000 Prographic). These provide for improved color reproduction, optimal color location and an index of metamerism of better than 1, as well as a uniform illumination. In addition, the user-friendliness has also been increased; the replacement of fluorescent tubes is structured very simply.

EUR 1890, including legal VAT, and, effective immediately, is available in specialist retail outlets. The measuring device "basICColor SQUID2" is optionally available for the price of approx.
