Can RGB work in reflective mode (printed sheets?). Something in my aging brain says they must be using CMY, like the old Fuji Pictrography technology did with amazing quality.

 

By Irvin Press on Dec 10, 2013

Miles Bentley from LumeJet spoke with me about the question of RGB and expanded gamut.

As Frank correctly assumed, LumeJet technology images on silver halide photographic paper. Photographic paper is sensitive to the red, green and blue light that for many years have passed through the lens of a camera, with an outstanding reflective gamut. LumeJet uses very finite RGB LED light sources to get even better results: Not only do images benefit from the expanded RGB gamut, but they can also reproduce pin-sharp text and vector graphics. This opens up the range of applications to include corporate pitch books and lenticular printing, among many others.

By the way, the technology is also cost effective. LumeJet believes that in most cases it is less expensive, on average, than inkjet on a page-by-page basis.
