Monday, 1:10 p.m. – 2:10 p.m. Emulation Proofing for Digital Presses
How are you proofing work that is printed on your digital press? Are you interrupting a production run to create a proof? Economically, this just doesn’t make sense. Why not move proofing off of your digital press? Proofing for a digital press is similar to proofing for a conventional press, except for one simple but highly confusing concept: your digital press is already being color managed to emulate something else. This “something else” may be your offset press, GRACoL2013, or your offset matched as closely as possible to GRACoL2013. This session will take a deep dive into emulation proofing for digital presses with the goal of untangling the confusion.
