Veripress

Precision Soft Proofing

Veripress is a complete on-press soft proofing system for screened, PDF and postscript CTP RIPs, designed to produce verified, colour-matched proofs on screen, at the touch of a button.

At Serendipity, we understand you need a seamless proofing solution alongside your press. A system that automatically assembles plate files straight from your platesetter RIP, that can work with your publication planning files, and can integrate with your press console.

We know you need unparalleled colour management that utilises the full gamut of your press desk display, and a spot colour merging system that precisely simulates the interaction of press process and spot inks on your substrates.

Fast, cost-efficient, and made for high-volume press and publishing environments, Veripress ensures your pages will be ready to approve on screen, at the press desk, as soon as plates arrive.

Colour-Managed Soft Proofing System

See what Veripress can do for your workflow

Colour Management

Veripress features an ICC v4.2 compliant colour management system with true 16-bit processing for enhanced colour depth and finer colour control.


  • Proof files containing halftone, stochastic, hybrid, or any other screening type.
  • Real Dot Technology displays your soft proofs with exactly the same dot structure as source platesetter RIP files.
  • Create or import unlimited Lab, CMYK, or multi-colour spot colour libraries.
  • Lab (Multi) special colour support allows spot inks to be specifically characterised, defining the Lab values of a colour at different tint levels.
  • Advanced RGB and CMYK colour merging and spot colour paint modes precisely simulate your press process and spot inks.

Press RIP & Console Integration

Veripress interprets the native file format, directory structure, assembly and imposition data of your platesetter RIPs.


  • Virtual Press allows you to manage, assign and change job plates.
  • Configure automated RIP polling and customise your proofing workflow.
  • Bookfilter uses your press planning files to automatically assemble publication pages on screen in the correct sequence, broadsheet pairing, and press orientation.
  • Press console integration allows operators to load publication pages for soft proofing directly from the press console.
  • An integrated Job Genie can be programmed to read your filename format and stitch single plates into full colour jobs and publications.

Press Simulation

Veripress uses Press Configurations to precisely simulate the properties of the press and substrate on screen.


  • Define your press operating gamut with CMYK or multicolour match ICC profiles.
  • Press ink and platesetter dotgain compensation normalises plate files for proofing.
  • Reproduce substrate white point, show-through and stretch. Set maximum ink weights.
  • A replacement ink feature handles non-standard press ink setups.
  • Switch press configurations instantly to view jobs as printed by another press.
  • Simulate and highlight drop-off (minimum dot) areas for Flexo Printing.

Touch Control

Veripress has integrated touch screen support. A Touch Console interface allows one-touch access to soft proof viewing, tool and navigation.


  • Assemble publications from single pages, press plans, or by de-imposing them on-the-fly from press sheets.
  • A Page Navigator shows available, missing and duplicate pages.
  • Multi-resolution previews allow real-time zooming of large print areas.
  • Virtual Loupe magnifies areas for quality checks and shows accurate ink coverages.
  • View spreads, signatures, back-page show-through, and individual ink channels.
  • Ink Key Viewer helps the press operator setup press ink ducts and calculate ink use.

Monitor Calibration & Verification

Integrated monitor calibration and verification tools ensure accurate colour reproduction of your entire press gamut on screen.


  • Proof Lock ensures soft proofing only on displays that conform to your colour standards.
  • Truespot colour iteration automatically adjusts and optimises spot colours to precisely match press output on your soft proof display.
  • Veripress automatically adjusts screen gamma, white point and brightness.
  • Calibrate soft proofing displays, light booths and the measure ambient lighting of your press room.
  • Generate colour verification charts from imported CGATS data or directly from press ICC profiles. Measure and verify your colour against Δe, ΔH and ΔCh tolerances.
  • Verify job specific spot colours while soft proofing.

Proofing Power

Veripress is a Server/Client based system supporting an unlimited number of local or networked soft proofing clients at no additional cost.


  • Client interface settings can be individualised or shared with other users.
  • A Secure Mode option allows selective user access to functions and job information.
  • Multi-threading and multi-core CPU support provide unparalleled speed and simultaneous job processing.
  • A single Veripress server can supply proofs for all your presses.

Created with your business in mind

See how Veripress' features can work for you.

Display Calibration

Keep your monitors calibrated with the Displays application, ensuring what you see on screen is what you see in print.

Displays automatically adjusts screen gamma, brightness levels and white point to suit your proofing environment. Use a supported spectrophotometer to calibrate displays and light booths, or measure ambient light sources.

Calcheck management maintains your monitor colour at a press proofing standard.

Press Comparison By The Numbers

The Spectro tool allows press operators to measure colour values of a soft proof and verify them against a printed test sheet.

Using a supported spectrophotometer, measurements can be taken to compare colour values (LAB, Lch, XYZ, Density) of the print to the soft proof.

A precise delta value ensures the colours onscreen match those of the press output.

SoftProof

Preview ICC managed, colour-accurate, pages, spreads, press sheets or publications onscreen.

Full high DPI (4K / UHD) monitor support provides true print quality soft proofing. Multi-resolution previews allow for real-time zooming to check press sheet details.

The Virtual Loupe zooms in on the tiniest areas to check for errors and bleed. Simulate various press substrates onscreen with Press Configurations.

Learn more about the SoftProof application.

Proof Lock

Quality assurance is vital to colour managed print and press workflows.

The Proof Lock feature ensures your onscreen soft proofs precisely match your print output colour standards at all times.

If a proofing display calibration has expired, or a monitor has failed a colour verification check; Proof Lock will temporarily restrict access to soft proofing, provide the reason, and a course of action to restore soft proofing functionality.

Press Agent

Press console integration with the Press Agent application allows operators to load publication pages for soft proofing directly from the press console.

Supported console standards include ABB Control Console 750/770, EAE Soft Proof, Goss Omicon & omniPage, Honeywell GUS and Prime Softproof.

Bookfilter & BookMonitor

Bookfilter uses your press planning files to automatically assemble publication pages on screen in the correct sequence, broadsheet pairing, and press orientation.

Use the BookMonitor or the Touch Console to soft proof multi-section or multi-edition publications, with common pages only needing to be ripped once.

Supports IFRA Track, EAE P4, Arkitex Director & Arkitex Publication Builder planning file standards.

Lab (Multi) Spots

Lab (Multi) special colour support allows spot inks to be specifically characterised, defining the Lab values of the colour at different tint levels from 0% (paper/substrate) through to 100% (solid). This enables Serendipity's colour engine to reproduce your colours with unparalleled accuracy.

Colours can be user-created, or imported from compatible CxF or PDF/X-4 files containing spot colours with ink characterisation data.

Truespot

The Truespot application uses an iterative process to print, measure and verify spot colours, optimising them for specific proofing media.

Truespot generates a custom Replace Colour Set that is applied to all jobs passing through the Media, replacing matching job special colours with Truespot colours that are a closer match to the originals when printed.

Existing Truespot replace colour sets can be added to at any time by adjusting and verifying new Special Colour sets for the Media.

Remote Proofing

Veripress is able to send proofs via Secure FTP to other Veripress Remote Servers anywhere in the world.

Serendipity Remote Proof files maintain complete data integrity - preserving process and spot colour values and transparency.

Remote users with the same calibrated Press configuration will view a certified, identical proof.
