The Kodak Matchprint Virtual technology allows users who run Mac OS X (macOS High Sierra 10.13, macOS Mojave 10.14, macOS Catalina 10.15 and macOS Big Sur 11) with the Apple Safari browser and a calibrated color monitor to perform color-accurate virtual proofing of project elements in Smart Review. After the monitor is calibrated and a color target is assigned to the color-approval task, an element can be checked in Smart Review for color accuracy and then approved, rejected, or marked for corrections.

This document explains how to install the Matchprint Virtual software, configure monitor settings, set color targets, and configure Kodak InSite Creative Workflow for virtual proofing.

Perform the following actions to set up your system:

  1. Configure the Mac computer preferences.
  2. Install the Matchprint Virtual monitor calibration software on your Mac computer and connect the measuring device.
  3. Set monitor luminance levels.
  4. Calibrate the color monitor.
  5. Set light source.
  6. Configure the Websocket server application and the Keychain Access settings for Matchprint Virtual use on the Mac computer.
  7. Ensure that you use the Matchprint Virtual project user right.
    For instructions on viewing your user rights and assigning rights to other users, see the InSite Creative Workflow Help.
  8. Create and assign color approval tasks.
    For instructions on creating and assigning color approval tasks and on approving color in Smart Review, see the InSite Creative Workflow Help.
