The Ugra/Fogra Media Wedge CMYK is the standard tool for the control of the color transformation form the data to the digital proof or the printing. With the Ugra/Fogra Media Wedge CMYK the aim values for standard print proceedures and paper types are supplied.

A proof classified as a contract proof must exhibit a Ugra/Fogra Media Wedge CMYK. Its color values must correspond to the nominal values of the printing conditions of the standard series ISO 12647, and/or to the tolerances for the test process of digital data, as these were specified in ISO 12647-7. The guidelines are the basis for a smooth technical cooperation between clients, prepress service providers and printing companies.

The Ugra/Fogra Media Wedge consists of 72 patches, which are defined with area coverages of the process colors C (Cyan), M (Magenta), Y (Yellow) and K (Black). For each patch, colorimetric aim values according to ISO 12647 are defined, depending on the printing proceedure and the printing substrate.

At present, the Ugra/Fogra Media Wedge is the recognized control tool worldwide for the contract proof.

For a professionally produced contract proof it is essential and therefore also integrated in many proof systems and RIPs as licensed component. Additionally the Ugra/Fogra Media Wedge V3.0 can be used also as digital control tool in the workflow, in order to observe the effect of an image process in the CMYK mode and other prepress work.
