A System Design for Color Conversions

In a complex printing environment, color conversions occur at many diverse places throughout the system. In an Advanced Function Presentation printing environment, color conversions occur on Postscript data, on image data and on text and graphics. It is particularly important to produce consistent colors across all data paths for both device-dependent and device-independent color spaces.

As an example, an EPS file may be RIPped in the Infoprint Manager (IPM) print server and converted to image which is sent to the printer. Or the EPS may be imbedded in an Intelligent Printer Data Stream and RIPped in the printer. Thus, color conversion within the EPS might occur during application design (using an ICC Profile), within the IPM print server or inside the printer. The color conversion task includes handling SWOP and Euroscale as well as controlling toner saving.

  • For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.

    Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
