Colour Management for Digital & Analogue

AVA Production Colour Management (PCM)

Whether you’re printing digital, analogue or both, ensuring a good colour match across all devices and technologies, is both a cost saving goal and a major competitive advantage.

AVA has the solution. Our combination of software, expertise, and training (AVA Production Colour Management or PCM), helps many businesses ensure that digital proofers match high-speed digital printers, digital printers match analogue printers and of course, all these match the computer display. A digital print operator, with access to AVA colour management data, can preview all the steps and identify potential problems before a single metre has been printed.

Subject to AVA’s colour calibration recommendations, training, hardware and studio environment.

Key Features

Soft Proofing

In conjunction with regular printer and monitor calibration, colour within the capabilities of your printer, inks and substrate, to ensure that what you see on screen is what you see on prints. You can also colour match using a colour book system if preferred.

Sustainable solution

Share colour management with all parties. When colour management is shared with all the participants in your workflow to whom colour is important, then printing runs efficiently and to everyone’s satisfaction. Designers and customers can join the workflow from the comfort of their home or studio, and design within your colour space. Share data, set expectations and reduce waste, cost and unnecessary frustration.


Many of the AVA tools and functions can be amalgamated into “Palettes”. These Palettes can create brand new, custom tools, as well as one-click workflow accelerators.
