Verifies the printer’s color output before running a print job, providing a check for “color drift.”
Mutoh has launched ColorVerify, a color-checking system that utilizes the company’s SpectroVue VM-10 spectrophotometer to verify the printer’s color output before running a print job, providing a check for “color drift.”
With the system, the user prints the ColorVerify Color Check test strip at the beginning of a print run and stores the measured values as a “baseline” in the printer’s on-board memory. At any point in the print run, the user can re-print the test strip and re-measure; the printer will analyze the measured values, compare them to the baseline values, and report how much color variation has occurred between the current print and the baseline measurement. ColorVerify also notifies the operator if the printer is reproducing color consistently across the full-platen width.
The SpectroVue spectrophotometer can be used with Mutoh’s ValueJet 1324 and 1624 printers, and comes standard with the ValueJet 1608 Hybrid printer; it mounts directly to the side of the printhead.
