Sawgrass Launches Software Update

Users of SubliJet-R Ricoh SG 3110DN and SG 7100DN printers have a newly-updated tool for color management with the release of Sawgrass Technologies’ PowerDriver 4. This update to the software has been designed to make managing color fast, easy and reliable for sublimators of all skill levels, according to the company.

“We are constantly refining our products to provide our customers with the best user experience possible,” said Patrick McGinnis, director of product marketing. “PowerDriver 4 is our most-advanced color management software to-date, and combines the familiar look of our legacy version with powerful new tools to make creating great prints easier than ever.”

PowerDriver 4 was developed specifically for SubliJet-R desktop sublimation users. Access to this free, user-friendly software is included with every SubliJet-R ink purchase and comes with lifetime technical support.

This newest version of PowerDriver is dramatically faster and easier to install and use, says the company. Through the simplified user interface, users can access Material, Color, Utilities and Resources program functions. A new mouse-over function provides brief descriptions about menu and selection options and how to make selections. For international users, the interface offers language options in English, Spanish, German, Turkish, French and Italian.

In response to customer requests for more control over the color and output of images, PowerDriver 4 offers new slider-bar adjustment controls for color hue, brightness, contrast and saturation levels.

PowerDriver 4’s ColorSure Spot Color Matching Wizard allows users to match a spot color. This new wizard-powered tool enables users to identify, validate and save critical spot colors to the ColorSure Palette.

Additionally, users can specify options for a special print requirement or application, and then combine them into a single custom setting that can be saved in the pre-set menu for future use. PowerDriver 4 features pre-configured pre-sets for printing products such as mugs, mouse pads, polyester T-shirts, phone cases and products from UniSub and ChromaLuxe.
