Kodak Prosper Imprinting System with stream inkjet technology targets high volume direct mail market and customized products with print quality close to offset output. This study compared the print quality of a Kodak Prosper press and a Heidelberg Speedmaster CD 74 press. The parameters studied were solid/tone uniformity, tone reproduction, rub resistance, and detail reproduction. The lithography samples included typical screen ruling settings of 133 lpi and 150 lpi for photograph quality comparison. The samples printed were presented to and evaluated by observers with or without graphic arts experience. The visual comparison and quantitative data were presented. The results showed that Kodak Prosper press has decent print quality with good color appearance. The detail reproduction quality is not comparable with lithography quality.

  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
