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

Are You Ready for the MarTech Explosion?

Published: January 16, 2017

Marketing technology is exploding. Michael Chase of St. Joseph Communications says that there are now more than 3,500 providers of "MarTech" services. But, building efficient marketing platforms requires more than just cherry-picking technology solutions. Chase notes that all the MarTech in the world won't help if there is no content strategy in place to guide the effort. The first tasks are to define the kinds of content to be created and to identify the audiences to whom the content will be presented. Armed with this knowledge, says Chase, marketers can choose the right channels and work toward achievable outcomes.
