An upgraded version of a popular color-management software program for plastics, paints, and inks is said to allow extremely accurate color matches even in difficult cases such as with transparent and translucent plastics. New Match Pigment 2.0 from Datacolor Corp., Lawrenceville, N.J., includes a queue system to allow users to simultaneously view, manage, and process a list of standards and associated formulas for a large number of samples. Other new and improved features include sorting options, priority values for ingredients, compatibility values for ingredient combinations, and scheduling. According to Datacolor, the software quickly and easily chooses the best combination of ingredients to match a target, while allowing users to match numerous jobs at one time.
