The graphic arts workflows (pre-press) are becoming more and more digital: computer-to-film, computer-to-plate, computer-to-press. It is therefore necessary to generate proofing solutions directly from the electronic files: digital proofing. Proofing is absolutely necessary to control and monitor the pre-press process.

Ink jet-based digital proofing systems are becoming more and more accepted for digital proofing.

Agfa is offering a digital proofing system based upon the Sherpa drop-on-demand piezo ink jet printer, including RIP, screening and color management.

For contract proofing Agfa is offering high quality proofing ink jet media.

This paper focuses on the important role of ink jet media for the contract proofing quality.
