Creating The Image
High-end scanning and imagesetting systems continue to push the limits of image manipulation and consistency.
WORKING TOGETHER, scanners and imagesetters provide the powerful and precise images needed to create the products your customers expect and deserve.
"Today's properly managed workflows allow close monitoring of input [scanner] and output [imagesetter] conditions to assure the consistency of the desired results," says Al Eddy, special promotions manager for electronic imagining at Fujifilm. "If printing parameters are known, the scanner can be the first level of control to create image files that already have the proper characteristics of a press and/or printing condition 'embedded' in them. This allows imagesetters to run at optimum calibration settings. ICC profiling and the improvement of color management can enhance this further."
