HP Indigo Customer Note
Color Calibration Frequency Table for HP Indigo 10000 Digital Press
Affected products
HP Indigo 10000 Digital Press
Applicable to
This customer note is applicable to Level 1 Operators and above.
Background
Generally, best color performance requires a solid foundation of press maintenance (routines), calibrated press (wizards) and accurate substrate definition
(properties). Color performance will be poor if any of these requirements is not implemented properly. The final stage in the process refers the on press Color
Calibration features. By implementing the Color Calibration features, we ensure that colors are accurate and consistent over time.
NOTE: The color calibration features are components of a broader toolset, and are not to be considered as standalone tools.
The color calibration frequency table is based on best practices of HP Indigo customers around the world, supported by our technical industrial experts. The
table provides recommendations to ensure high productivity, best print quality, and high color performance.
You can achieve the best color consistency if the HP Indigo Digital Press is calibrated as often as possible; this frequency is dependent on your production
setup.
The recommended frequencies for color calibration are given as general guidelines. The selected frequency should suit the customer's level of color accuracy
requirements and the type of application being printed.
IMPORTANT: The customer should be aware that higher color accuracy requirements will increase waste and reduce press productivity.
The color calibration frequency table should be used as a practical tool (not just as a reference guide), and placed by the press for easy consultation.
If a customer has a color-related issue, the customer engineer (CE) should verify that the customer has actually followed the recommendations in the table.
This will help the CE to troubleshoot the color-related issue.
