So "calibrate the press automatically" is now xerox lingo for "linearize" or are we calibrating the RIP to the press, which is the industry understanding of the term "calibrate"?

And "Simple image quality adjustment" and "calibrate the press" (same terminology as used earlier for color correction) now also replaces the term "front to back registration"?

Xerox is such a worthy player in the industry and has such interesting technology. But why do they insist on hiding it in "doublespeak"?

Hey Martin, Brian here the guy in the video! You are correct it is calibrate or linearize the DFE and press for color – on a J75 you do that automatically (or even set up a time that you want it done). For Front-to-Back registration what happens with SIQA you create a profile for the stock, and when that stock is called it actually changes how the laser interacts with that sheet – changing what it images on the sheet for f2b, skew, magnification, and perpendicularity. When you shoot those videos they do them at a trade show (in this case Graphic of America) and you don’t get a chance to review or reshoot – so more ‘informational than gospel’, sorry for any confusion. Feel free to drop me a line if you have any questions (brian.segnit@xerox.com). Regards, Brian

Designers: Are You Designing with "Considerate Color"?

Published: February 16, 2018

Cal Poly Professor Brian Lawler explains what designers should be thinking about to serve the needs of those who don't see color the same way most of us do. He recommends a process for using "considerate color" that allows the people with color vision defects to still see contrast and tonal difference in colors selected for graphic projects such as roadmaps and charts where color itself is a factor in understanding the content. He mentions specific tools designers can use to accomplish this.

Art, Photography and Print: A Winning Combination for Christopher Campbell

Published: February 13, 2018

Christopher Campbell, a lifelong photographer and artist, explains how he blends these two passions to not only create great art, but to capture his unique artwork with a camera, generating a printed image that is almost indistinguishable from the original. He sees this as a remarkable moment in history: digital printers have such a large color gamut and can do so much, cameras now capture such high resolution, and color science has come to a point where ordinary people can profile a camera and a printer, and make these things.
