Optimizing Color from your Digital Press - April 2012

Although color management and process control for toner-based digital presses involves many of the same techniques used for offset presses, the tools for and execution of those techniques can be very different. While many digital press manufacturers may include basic color training during press installation, they do not delve deepenough into a foundational understanding of how to optimize color output.

This workshoppicks upon what the manufacturer's training fails to cover—Optimizing Color from your Digital Press will supply you with a comprehensive look at what it takes to produce reliable, high-quality digital output. The instruction will provide a blend of lab instruction and hands-on training to get you totally immersed and totally knowledgeable on the subject of digital color and press optimization.

But that's not all—you'll be able to immediately apply the techniques learned in this workshopand print to G7® and ISO 12647-2 at your own facility!
