Colorware BV chooses Odesyo as partner in the continuous printing market
Montpellier (FR), 15 March 2022:
Odesyo and Colorware BV, Netherlands-based leading developer of color management software technology, have decided to join forces to create a complementary solution integrating Smijet, Odesyo’s spectrophotometer, with Colorware’s MeasureColor technology.
Odesyo’s Smijet enables continuous, real-time spectral measurements on the printing machine. By inspecting 100% of the width of the printed surface, the integration of this device provides both speed and flexibility. The interaction with MeasureColor software indicates how to effectively set up color on the printing press to ensure print process stability in just a few seconds. MeasureColor helps press operators interpret color deviations quickly and correct them accordingly. This reduces make-ready time and waste, and facilitates process improvement and color standardization.
Colorware BV Managing Director Ruud Wentrup explains,
«Our MeasureColor technology is open to the world. It connects to many measuring devices, integrates with all leading pre-press workflow systems, and focuses on process optimization in the print production supply chain. Our partnership with Odesyo allows our customers, especially those running narrow web and digital printing machines, to monitor production stability from start to finish – for every print run throughout their production plants.”
Dominique Martin, founding partner and President of Odesyo adds,
«This partnership with Colorware brings out the best of our measuring technology. Measuring color only makes sense, provided operators can use measurement information to quickly and effortlessly adjust the press. The combination of both hardware and software technology offers a unique and strategically important solution for the market. Print companies should prepare for a more standardized production process because costs of raw materials, energy and waste massively impact their bottom line.»

After several years of collaboration, explore CODIMAG’s Viva 340 equipped with Odesyo’s Smijet inline spectral system for full-width color control in real time!
Automation of color control is now a must for a cost-effective printing process, especially with the rising costs of raw materials, energy and recycling.
The integration of Smijet on the printing machine addresses this problem: our patented multi-spectral sensor provides real-time control of the slightest colorimetric drift in the CIE L*a*b* color space, over the entire web width and over 100% of the production. With an accuracy of 1ΔE, our intelligent spectrophotometer can analyze directly in image and text areas up to 1 mm².
Thanks to their complementary features, Smijet® is now combined with Aniflo technology to optimize the manufacturing process and increase profitability. Not only will you have stable, predictable and repeatable inking, but also continuous deltaE measurement throughout the production process.
The customers are thus fully secured!
The integration of Smijet® on machine helps to:
- Reduce costs (ink, paper, energy) as well as waste and optimize makeready times, while ensuring impeccable quality.
- Guarantee color consistency over time and facilitate reprints.
- Guarantee the maintenance of the highest level of quality, even in periods of intense activity, and regardless of the skill level of the operators.

This technology partnership allows the control of printing defects and the spectral measurement of the color, simultaneously and automatically, on the entire web width and on 100% of the production.
It is a world premiere.
The French company Odesyo and the Italian enterprise DeCoSystem have just signed a technology partnership to offer their customers an all-in-one configuration that integrates their two flagship products – Smijet® and Sentinel.
Through a single interface, this innovation is designed to simplify commissioning and centralize the flow of digital data, both inbound and outbound, via a single dashboard. It offers printers an efficient and comprehensive solution that meets the industry’s requirements for fast makeready and production quality. This is the first time that print defects and spectral color measurement can be automatically controlled over 100% of the production, at running speed, through a single configuration.
Dominique Martin, CEO of Odesyo, explains: “This unique solution meets the needs of our customers for faster and high-quality production in both small and large production runs, while reducing costs and waste.
The integrated solution from Odesyo and DeCoSystem is now commercially available.

We invite you to meet Smijet at our booth 8B02. Smijet is a radical change of concept ! Significantly reducing printing waste, this innovative inline color-quality controller is a major step forward from the limited performance of conventional control systems, such as sampling or RGB cameras.
Integrated into the color printing production line, the Smijet® True Color automatic controller is fitted with an embedded AI and our patented multiband spectral sensor. It tracks and corrects in real time color consistency and print quality on 100% of the printed surface and 100% of production.
It prevents waste before it is created.
It avoids the costs of overquality.
A mere machine cannot do this!
Odesyo has met with many manufacturers and users of color inkjet printing to gain a better understanding of print quality control issues.
As such, the company has developed specific features that are now integrated into SmiJet, which:
- Reduce the time spent when starting the printer by automating and securing the calibration of the print heads (density, registration, and stitching)
- Avoid waste, and increase and secure production by controlling printing to detect missing nozzles and deflected jets. This control is performed over the entire printed web. Jet control is done directly on the print. It does not require the printing of control frames.
- Reduce operating costs by delivering information for predictive maintenance. Optimize the print head lifespan.
Why is Smijet the solution to avoid missing nozzles?
- Its sensor has a resolution of 2400 dpi. This is the minimum required for 1200 dpi printers.
- Its detection method avoids the impression of restrictive control charts to eliminate during finishing.
- Its artificial intelligence software anticipates defects before they appear
Now you have a new smart tool allowing you to automatically calibrate the colorimetry and the registration of your printing heads.
