Photo Quality Printing on a Digital Press
Abstract:In this paper, we will address the issues and the challenges for achieving photo-quality output with bi-level digital printing technologies. We will present the case study of transforming a 4-color Hewlett Packard Indigo liquid electrophotographic digital press, into a 6-color printer that can print images that are comparable, in terms of image quality and image permanence, to the traditional prints produced on silver halide photographic paper. We will discuss the requirements for gamut size, inks, color separation, halftoning and image permanence. We will describe the technologies and the methods needed to meet the requirements for photo-quality output.

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.
