The latest release from GlobalVision gives desktop users the ability to run faster and more accurate inspections with enhanced Text & Spelling Inspection features. Along with optimized processing speeds and improved usability, Version 5.5 introduces a new add-on tool for the inspection of tobacco packaging.

Top New Features:

Increased Processing Speeds

The newest version features a standalone Spelling mode thread by processing spelling inspections in the GlobalVision executable rather than the Text inspection executable. This update optimizes processing speeds by up to 4x, allowing users to complete revision cycles in a shorter time frame. In addition, users now have the option to preload files for Text Inspection.

Less Pixelation when Zooming In

GlobalVision 5.5 also comes with improvements to the clarity of text displayed during Text and Spelling inspections. The area of a file to which users zoom in is now rasterized at a higher resolution, reducing the pixelation of the image in the Master/Sample panel.

Text Inspection Software Allows 800% Zoom with High Resolution to See Details

Updated Difference List for Text & Spelling

Pop-up menus now help users navigate differences by clearly displaying levels and comments during inspections. The handling of Spelling dictionaries has also been addressed to improve the accuracy of punctuation errors detected during Text Inspection.

Health Warning Inspection Tool for Tobacco Packaging

With health-information and warning requirements becoming more and more regulated, tobacco companies are taking greater steps to ensure they meet high industry standards when it comes to packaging. Released with version 5.5, the latest innovation from GlobalVision was developed to facilitate the inspection of health warnings and artwork on tobacco labels and cartons.

GlobalVision Text and Spelling Inspection found 6 repeats in the file

The Compulsory Packaging Information (CPI) Extractor comes as an add-on to GlobalVision’s flagship Print Inspection system. Designed for use at each stage in the production process, it automatically compares cartons or press sheets to approved files to flag differences and ensures compliance with industry standards before going to print. This allows tobacco manufacturers to get their products to market faster by double-verifying health warnings and artwork in one complete inspection cycle.

 

 

Additional Features:

  • Generate comprehensive inspection reports to record and review all detected differences.
  • Stay on top of compliance standards by keeping track of each inspection with e-signatures for enhanced security.
  • Get color-coded grades of 1D and 2D barcodes in seconds without the need for a scanner with Barcode Inspection mode.

GlobalVision 5.5 is now available. To upgrade, contact sales.

File comparison using GlobalVision softwares

The just-released GlobalVision Desktop 5.3 and GlobalVision Web 3.3 each bring exciting, new features to the forefront. The end result, for both deployment options, is greater overall ease of use, though.

Top new GlobalVision Desktop features include:

  • Text Inspection tweaks to insertions/ deletions, which are now easier to locate, along with the new ability to search for text when creating zones and resynching differences.
  • New user-friendly keyboard shortcuts listed in a readily accessible in-app guide.

Top new GlobalVision Web features include:

  • A face-lifted Graphics Inspection Mode, complete with adjustable Flash, Master, and Sample panels.
  • Mozilla Firefox support.

Improved Insertion and Deletion Detection

GlobalVision Desktop users can now make use of a new search function. As text is being selected to create a “zone,” possible matches in the opposite panel now pop up. Much the same mechanic lets users match text when resynching differences after the inspection has been run.

Also following inspections: Detected insertions and deletions get highlighted in red in only the corresponding panel, letting users easily determine the difference’s exact location.

The Wait for the (Bigger) Flash Is Over

GlobalVision Web users running graphics inspections can now make the Flash panel as big as they want. The panel, which flashes between the Master and Sample in rapid succession to highlight differences, can be resized or popped out as a separate browser window. Meanwhile, the Master and Sample panels can be toggled off altogether, allowing for a fully customizable inspection view.

More of Color Inspection Mode

Color Inspection Mode, which innovatively confirms the accuracy of Pantone, LAB, CMYK, and RGB values at select points, has also been updated. A streamlined, new look to the user interface now accompanies an additional inspection “action.” Point to Point inspections can now be run, where, instead of having GlobalVision Desktop automatically compare the same point on the Sample to the one on the Master, users specifically pick points on each file to compare to each other.

Other Updates:

  • Sleeker designs coupled with general user-interface improvements.
  • U.S. Postal Service 4-State barcode support in GlobalVision Desktop Barcode Inspection.
  • Available French, German, and Spanish translations of GlobalVision Desktop itself.
  • Simpler processes to regain access to locked-out accounts in both versions.

Before, locked-out GlobalVision Desktop and Web users had to contact administrators to log back in. Now, they can re-activate their accounts on their own through an email notification (Web) or by simply waiting until their system’s pre-determined lock-out period ends to try logging in again (Desktop). The forgotten-password retrieval system has also been revamped in GlobalVision Desktop, which emails a temporary password to users upon request. Hassle-free.

Ultimately, it’s one of many additional features designed to simplify the lives of GlobalVision users. For a complete list, read the release notes for GlobalVision Desktop 5.3 and GlobalVision Web 3.3.

GlobalVision Adds Electronic Signatures for Enhanced Data Integrity to Most Comprehensive Platform Yet
 

With regulations increasing exponentially in importance, GlobalVision has responded to customers’ calls for greater control over data integrity by introducing electronic signatures into the fold.

By further addressing quality control professionals’ needs to meet FDA 21 CFR Part 11 compliance as a result, GlobalVision 5.1 for desktops is primed to exceed expectations. Whereas electronic signatures deliver enhanced transparency, other new features like the highly anticipated additions of Text and Spelling modes round out the offering for in-depth inspections that cover all your bases.

In short, top new features include:

  • Electronic signatures for greater transparency,
  • The ability to save scans to the Audit Trail for references purposes, and
  • Text and Spelling modes, making GlobalVision 5.1 a one-stop shop for all inspection types.

Electronic Signatures

With the integration of electronic signatures, administrators can control the system’s extensive record-keeping more thoroughly. When checked on, the feature forces the logged-in user to enter their credentials before generating a report, which gets signed with the appropriate name. In the application’s Audit Trail, reports can also be approved or rejected via much the same security mechanism, allowing companies to take greater advantage of the platform’s enhanced traceability.

Save Original Scans

The application’s traceability is enhanced even more by the ability to automatically save original scans. Previously scanned masters and samples saved to the database can be viewed by users with administrative privileges in the Audit Trail to help preserve data integrity to a greater extent. In addition, the time stamp of the scan and the name of the user who scanned the image are also recorded directly in the Audit Trail, accompanying the file for reference purposes.

Text and Spelling Inspection Mode

The release’s heightened functionality extends to inspections with the introduction of Text and Spelling to the all-in-one platform. With support for a variety of file types, Text compares documents with radically different layouts. For example, the accuracy of a printer’s proof in any language as a PDF compared to the text in an internally approved Microsoft® Word® document.

Package text inspection with layers, separations, and process

Spelling meanwhile, checks a loaded PDF, Word, HTML, or Adobe® Illustrator® doc against any one of 37 dictionaries. Each is customizable with company-specific terms to prevent false positives in future inspections, while every file also gets run against the onboard medical dictionary to verify drug terminology and ingredient lists for an extra degree of protection against potentially costly typos.

Additional updates:

  • Automatic removal of QRD (Quality Review of Documents) headers without having to create custom templates.
  • Advanced Table Logic to efficiently inspect tables with different cell formats.
  • Automatic Resync to enable post-processing difference detection.
  • Improved file-loading speed.

Resulting in added value and an unparalleled convenience factor, this release marks the first time all GlobalVision desktop modules have been combined in one platform.

For a complete list of all new features, read the release notes.

Presenting GlobalVision 4.1 for Desktop: New Workflows for Print Production
 

Having previously pulled out all the stops unifying our apps into a single platform, we’re going further and adding to that all-in-one offering. Presenting our latest desktop release: GlobalVision 4.1. Users can now take advantage of the brand-new Job Wizard and other exciting features to streamline inspections to an even greater degree.

A New Workflow for Easy Inspections

We created the new Job Wizard workflow specifically with users in mind. It’s front and center here and promises to simplify inspections for print production and press operators among many others. It’s just a matter of creating a new profile or selecting one of the default options. Essentially individual collections of pre-set parameters, the profiles enable jobs—possibly comprising multiple inspections at once—to be run more efficiently. The Wizard can be set to launch right when the platform loads. It then guides users step by step through inspections, ensuring everyone in the organization follows set processes and standards.

Faster, Stronger, Bigger, and Better

There’s also the matter of file-loading speeds, which have been improved. With specific regard to PDFs, the PDF Viewer functionality from Version 4.0 has been integrated into the new and improved interface. PDFs are now loaded directly into either the Master or Sample panel. You can then make desired separation and layer adjustments right there instead of in a separate window. It’s that easy!

Quality Control with All the Fixin’s

One of our ultimate goals has been to reduce users’ time spent switching between applications. Previously unifying all our apps was a giant leap forward. The integration of the PDF Viewer in this latest version is now following suit. Furthermore, in Version 4.1, you also have the option to scan in files at the push of a button, without a scanner interface popping up. And, when generating and viewing inspection reports, you can launch the platform’s very own Report Viewer instead of your system’s default PDF reader. 

Additional updates include:

  • A new one-to-one action for quicker inspections of press sheets.
  • Support for Code 32 barcodes in the Barcode Inspection app.
  • The addition of Unified English Braille (UEB) to the Braille library.
  • The ability to specify default paths when saving inspection reports or image views.

GlobalVision is consistently looking for more and more ways to improve users’ efficiency. These are just a select few. Overall, GlobalVision 4.1 can best be summarized as another step in the right direction, with more inevitably to come. Have something you want to see in a future update? Let us know here.

What to do when you find spelling errors in your print job
 

Errors in packaging components arise all the time and are part of the game. They are unavoidable. But what is a surprise to most people, is that spelling mistakes are the most common.

The largest investment in error avoidance includes expensive inline web inspection systems, cameras, scanners and most of all, countless hours in manual proofreading time to painstakingly inspect the job. Almost no investment dollars are ever invested to ensure the text copy is free of spelling mistakes. As well, there is hardly any manual proofreading time spent on spellchecking.

“We just received the shipment of our print job and there is a spelling mistake!”

Man doing package inspection manually

If this wasn’t bad enough, just ask whose responsibility it is.

The customer may be contracting out the development of the copy, and assume spellchecking is done at that time. Internally, no one will be raising their hand.

Why? Because there are so many companies and their professionals in the downstream supply chain, that surely spellchecking must be done by someone.

The truth is, spellchecking is an orphan in most organizations.
This actually should not be surprising at all for the obvious reasons.

  1. It is a detailed, painstaking and boring task
  2. Many technical words are complex and long in characters
  3. Foreign languages pose a significant barrier
  4. No one is willing to pay for it
  5. If there is a spelling mistake, we simply blame the printer.
  6. We live with the error and hope it doesn’t happen again
  7. The printer offers a discount to remedy the situation

This is why spelling mistakes plague so many printed packaging materials.


Misconception #1 – Spelling errors, is part one in a five part series about the misconceptions in packaging quality control. Visit our blog next week for Misconception #2 – The Printer’s Proof.

GlobalVision Takes Its New Look to the Cloud

Poised to match the success of our quality control platform for desktop, GlobalVision Web takes cues from both it and Proofware, which serves as its immediate predecessor for use on the cloud. Essentially an overhaul with a focus on ease-of-use and an enhanced feature set, GlobalVision Web is both streamlined and unified… with a more-efficient workflow revolving around effortless access to refined versions of each of our inspection tools.

GlobalVision… on the Web

Honed with new support for HTML5, GlobalVision Web is fast, put simply. That’s not just relative to predecessor Proofware, but quality control standards as well. Obviously gone are the days when companies were forced to take weeks to manually proof shipments back from the printer before sending them off to production. Automated platforms like GlobalVision have long since rendered concepts like proofing fatigue practically obsolete (or unnecessary). But GlobalVision Web’s speed ranks among the fastest of those too.

GV package inspection with code

The secret is part and parcel HTML5. Java and additional plug-ins are no longer required on client systems, helping to maximize efficiency and minimize time wasted by the user. The system’s capacity when loading large files has been increased relative to what it had been with Proofware. As a result, users can also look forward to master and sample files being loaded and then inspected more quickly, effectively getting to the heart of what the platform does best, which, as it so happens, is a great deal.

GlobalVision Web offers users much the same proofing experience users would get with the desktop platform. That is, with an emphasis on “smooth,” with the proofing itself handled by the system, comprising the same applications (availability to users being based on administrator preferences). Any transition between the two applications should be just as smooth and seamless. The territory, however new overall, is nevertheless familiar between the two. The overlapping applications are just as innovative.

Multiple Apps, One GlobalVision

You’ve got Text to proofread documents as they inch closer to the final product against the originally approved copy. Graphics performs pixel-by-pixel comparisons to achieve much the same goal and ensure artwork remains unchanged from the start of the workflow to the end. Spelling prevents avoidable errors with the aid of a customizable company-specific dictionary. Braille verifies that the dots on packaging components are consistent with any one of a number of different languages, while Barcode translates, checks the quality, and grades probably the single-most important artwork element against industry standards.

Icons of GlobalVision Inspections in transparent background

Notes, which facilitates the annotation and review of single documents, rounds out the total six applications, showcasing GlobalVision Web’s versatility as a key quality control instrument in any company’s toolbox.

Considering the sheer amount of tools, it may be more accurate to consider GlobalVision Web as the box itself, one with a sleek new look and everything you need, from a quality-control perspective, inside to match.

Learn More about The 5 Most Common Printed Packaging Errors.

Our helpful guide walks you through the top 5 errors that can occur when printing packaging, and what you can do to prevent them.

Laptop with globalvision digital inspection tool for a product package

It isn’t as simple of an answer as you might think: What’s the difference between Text and Graphics Inspection, two of the most-used apps in the GlobalVision quality-control platform?

Aside from the obvious, i.e., their functionalities? Well, they’re used at different steps of the quality-control process. It’s what leads to Quality by Design, a concept popularized within the pharmaceutical industry, among others, that dictates thorough testing of a product at the end of the line does little to guarantee its overall quality. The trick is in ensuring quality at each stage.

Inspecting Text vs. Graphics

Back to the original question, you would use Text to inspect exactly that and Graphics to inspect artwork. However, considering Graphics can detect missing characters as well, the lines get blurred between the two somewhat.

Add in Spelling Inspection, which also inspects text, albeit in a different fashion, and things get dicier. Barcode and Braille Inspection meanwhile make the software that much more versatile, but potentially more overwhelming as well. We’re here to help you make sense of it all.

Documents under text inspection using GlobalVision tool

It’s fair to say that Text Inspection is to be used when comparing two documents with live copy.  And, while Graphics performs a pixel-by-pixel comparison of two artwork files, it can successfully detect text differences in specific areas of two similar files.

For example, when comparing an approved PDF file of a carton of medication to a proof, it would detect a missing hyphen between a “2” and a “3” under dosage. Meaning, instead of 2-3 caplets, the consumer would thankfully be spared from reading instructions to take 23 every few hours.

However, Graphics Inspection doesn’t see issues with the font or formatting. It just sees arrays of pixels. The module can detect that missing hyphen because the two files being compared are very similar in layout. The second you try and compare text in a Microsoft® Word® document to the exact same text laid out in a PDF is the second you’ll realize why Text Inspection is necessary.

As soon as the font or font size changes, as soon as text gets rearranged, Graphics will no longer recognize the two documents as being similar. An inspection can still theoretically be run, but the result will be more recognizable to a Christmas tree than any of the two documents being compared based on how much it’s lit up with flashing differences. The copy may be exactly the same, right down to every comma, but it won’t matter.

Step by Step

Package Inspection using Global Vision Tools

That’s why the tools are available as separate modules within the same program. They have different functions, but are meant to be used together… as complements to one another. The simplest way to describe the process would be the following: Check the quality of a given file with the tool that corresponds to the step at which you are.

So, for example, if you’re in the marketing department and developing the text component, use Text (and Spelling, which should actually be used at every step that copy is altered). If you’re coming up with artwork as a member of the graphics or creative department, use Graphics.

Braille, created separately by a specialist, is usually inserted at this stage too. A for-position-only barcode is meanwhile inserted as a placeholder as well. The printer can be responsible for placing the real one immediately prior to printing. As a result, it’s critical that the barcode be inspected prior to that point of no return (along with the entire file).

Quality by Design

Monitor showing globalvision digital inspection software

The ability to inspect the same file(s) with each mode simultaneously comes in handy both here and when comparing the final print to the approved PDF. You may not be responsible for a specific step in the creation process, but you may still be in charge. Running a batch inspection lets a quality manager find out at which specific step of the process there was a hiccup.

If everyone inspects the file at the point they should, there shouldn’t be any at all. However, it’s just one more precaution to take to prevent issues much more serious than a mere hiccup from being discovered later on, potentially in the hands of a customer as a worst-case scenario.

Quality by Design, as it pertains to quality control, essentially argues to ensure with 100% certainty that the quality is there after you’ve completed your step of the process. Put another way, it argues not to move it along to the next person if you can’t. That’s something everyone should be able to get behind and where the real logic should come into play.
