Remote digital proofing is the ability to send a digital file to a remote location to output a proof. Technological advances in digital proofing systems, improved color calibration software, and a wide variety of file transfer options, now make it possible to send files to any location in order to have a digital proof made. Using the file transfer options saves time and money by eliminating the need for overnight courier services and streamlining the proof-approval process.

For the file transfer to be  an effective process, you need the following:

  • A reliable, fast, and cost-effective method to transfer the file such as a high-speed connection (ISDN or faster), either through Internet access or a private network. The speed of transferring files may vary depending on the size of your files and how often you send them.
  • Software that allows onscreen viewing and proofing over a network so that people in different locations can collaborate on a project interactively. People can make notations on different layers labeled with their name and see the comments of other proofreaders as well.
  • A color-management system that is accurate across several different computers. Using a color management system such as Apple's ColorSync allows you to apply profiles to an onscreen image, which then displays the impact of press or proof profiles. The onscreen densitometer shows the effect of a specific combination of press, paper, and ink on the final output.
  • A reliable and consistent proofing device with controlled calibration. Are the proofs used for evaluating color or just for content? Knowing how the proof will be used makes a difference on how exact the color needs to be.
  • A color target for the proof and a way to guarantee color at the receiving site:
    • Does the digital color proofing system have a means to adjust the color target to standard industry specifications?
    • Can the system match color to any press or color conditions?
    • Does the system produce consistent and repeatable color?
    • Is consistency measured and the results guaranteed
