OKI has launched a dedicated database for ColorPainter users, with over 14 000 media profiles, giving registered users fast, free access to accurate media and colour management settings and unlocking new revenue opportunities for graphic arts businesses and creative organisations.

Developed by OKI, in conjunction with leading media brands, registered ColorPainter users can download unlimited profiles from the platform, significantly cutting time and costs for dealers, distributors and business users by removing the need to create new, bespoke profiles. In addition to the current ColorPainter portfolio, media profiles are also available for older devices and different RIP software, including ONYX and Caldera.

Once registered, users can create a dedicated account where they can access and manage the download queue for selected media profiles and view a history of downloads for repeat tasks. An easy-to-use search function makes it simple to navigate the extensive platform and find the right media profile for the task.

Building on the 14 000+ media profiles already in the database, the free resource will continue to be updated with new profiles that incorporate different media types, enabling users to generate the best quality output as well as minimising the risk of false prints.

Renowned for its media flexibility, OKI's wide format ColorPainter portfolio delivers high quality creative printing that meets the diverse requirements of the outdoor signage and indoor graphics industries, combining fast print speeds with superior image quality.

The award-winning ColorPainter portfolio includes the fast, high-volume professional graphics ColorPainter H3-104s, the versatile, high-density and high-durability ColorPainter M-64s, and the newest device in the series, the ColorPainter E-64s, providing premium performance, high levels of precision and amazing ease of use, while fully supporting entry-level, environmentally-friendly printing.

Fully equipped for indoor and outdoor media use, the ColorPainter portfolio is specifically designed to overcome common environmental, quality and media flexibility barriers, enabling businesses to create a wide range of products, including billboard banners and posters, technical textiles, vehicle and building wraps, backlit signage and floor graphics. Furthermore, they can create many interior decoration applications like wallpaper, oil-paint replicas, real photo reprints, window shades, and a lot more.
