METHOD FOR PREPARATION AND SETTING OF A COLOR TONER-BASED PRINTER FOR COLOR MANAGED PRINT PRODUCTION COMPARABLE TO OFFSET TECHNOLOGY
The paper presents some of the results, obtained during the research on scientific project at TU-Sofia № 171ПР0012-06 “Research on the influence of using raster image processors (RIP) on the quality of color printing of poligraphic digital proofing systems“. The purpose of the parer is to present an optimized method for preparation of digital color toner based printer for color managed printing. The printer being researched uses specialized color server (RIP), that introduces many new functionalities, but at the same time introduces new difficulties related to setting the corrects settings in order to obtain predictable and repeatable quality prints. There are not many references in the literature to the correct way ot making these settings and the paper will be very usefull to those interested in the research of such printers as well as to practitioners in the field of digital printing, because it presents, in an organized way, the author’s experience in the research of these printers and his practical experience in the field.
