Fall Conference 2019 Session 4: Rounding the Curves
Session 4: Rounding the Curves
Fingerprinting, whether following Near-Neutral Calibration (NNC)/G7 or traditional Tonal Value Increase (TVI), documents the press’ conditions and the resulting print quality across the web under stable and repeatable conditions. The end result of the fingerprint is the creation of compensation curves.
Hear an explanation of the two fingerprints and the differences between them, then watch a live demonstration of a fingerprint run on a virtual reality (VR) press. Discover how the fingerprint data is used in prepress and where the curves are applied in the RIP.
Know Your Fingerprint
Catherine Haynes, All Printing Resources Inc (APR)
Fingerprinting is the process we use to establish curves for a production process. Having completed the optimization process, it is now time to bring the variables together, confirm the standards for which we are aiming, and define a set of curves that will enable us to manage the process. Hear a review of the benefits of the newer SCTV metric as it compares to traditional Murray-Davies TVI curves. And learn the advantages of using NNC as a methodology for calibrating a press to a known standard.
Demonstrating a Fingerprint Run
Bobby Congdon, Clemson University
Christopher Teachout, Daetwyler Corp
Bobby and Chris will fire up the VR press and perform a fingerprint run.
Slow Down to Go Faster
AJ Grome, E.C. Shaw Co
We now have a really cool printed sheet with lots of blocks, lines, letters and screens on it. Learn what really happens with this information when it is received by a premedia provider. Find out what they do with that data and how it is important to a printer.
