Why Inkjet is Different
As print runs get shorter and clients demand more personalization and versioning, print service providers are looking at transitioning work from traditional offset to digital. This session is going to explore the key considerations service providers need to think through as they make this transition. We will explore topics like color management, media, and linearization.
Color Management: If you are transitioning to inkjet from an offset background, your operators are used to adjusting the color at the press, but inkjet does not have ink keys to make the color adjustment. Color management is performed upfront before the files are sent to the press. We'll discuss input and output profiling definition, linearization and media needs to optimize color.
