Product Overview

MediaCheck is print inspection

MediaCheck is a family of print inspection or print verification systems. Our products compare digitally PDF files and scanned images against PDF reference files. Using a pixel-based comparison at high resolutions, the system is able to detect even the smallest deviations (spots, font changes, ...). We focus on providing our customers with the most accurate control with the minimal effort necessary. The system is highly configurable and adaptable to the needs and workflows in each company as well as easily scalable to the throughput you need. The user interface is easy and quick to use. See the main steps of checking here.

Modules for Braille decoding, comparison and measurement as well as the processing of booklets as multi-page PDF files complement the MediaCheck software.

All versions of MediaCheck allow the comparison of multiple ups (multiple copies of the same reference and / or different references). The references are automatically located, rotated and identified. No need to specify the location or rotation of a reference.

MediaCheck Medium

The modern way of print inspection

MediaCheck Medium is a print inspection tool on a single computer to use the advantages of job processing on a single machine. Our "middle" solution allows you to work on the system, while another job is processing. Jobs are stored, so that you can go back to earlier results or add later more samples to existing jobs. The software remains fully available during a checking process.

All versions of MediaCheck allow the comparison of multiple ups (multiple copies of the dame reference and/or different references). The references are automatically located, rotated and identified. No need to specify the location or rotation of a reference.

MediaCheck Workflow

The modern way of print inspection

Our systems provide our customers with a modern and efficient print inspection offering a high degree of accuracy with minimal effort.

The new, and so far unique, implementation as a client-server architecture allows a flexible integration and easy adaption to existing conditions and work processes.

Why a client-server architecture?

A crucial question yet easy to answer when looking at the advantages compared to a single-user solution. The simple and flexible integration into existing workflows to rapidly respond to market changes and market requirements and to optimize work processes smoothly deserves special attention. But there are other advantages to using a client-server architecture and reward a modern system.

Also with PDF processing we make no compromises

Use the number one when it comes to PDF. With the implementation and integration of the latest Adobe library, we offer the widest compatibility in PDF-interpretation. Through intelligent data handling and specially developed algorithms various actions can be automated, such as determining the inspection area using a color separation or a layer. Especially in PDF file comparison this can achieve significant improvements. Traceability, transparency and repeatability of the inspection results is very important to us, therefore all changes / adjustments can be observed in the preview windows. Thus, a good overview is guaranteed in every situation and provides the proper support even when adjusting inspection content, for example when hiding unwanted elements on a layer or color separation.

Documentation and manual but please up-to-date, self-evident for MediaCheck. The documentation supplied includes the installation qualification, our system check (OQ), the system check compliance with FDA CFR Part 11 as well as the manual and everything even as iBooks with interactive content. In this respect we offer our customers more and provide small, easy to understand tutorial videos on all aspects of our software.

The review process consists of the following four steps:

  • Defining a job
  • Loading or scanning a sample
  • Evaluating the result
  • Generating a protocol
