Background

You can generate a PDF Verification report to verify the following:

  • If the calibrated color response of a print calibration curve, a PCO,  or an SCO matches either the target response or the predicted response.

  • If the predicted response of a print calibration curve, a PCO, or an SCO using the curve or the DeviceLink method you have chosen matches the color response of the simulation or the conversion target.

Tasks

Goal
Create Verification reports to check if the color response of a print calibration curve matches the target. In this activity, you will create two reports: the first report compares the predicted response to the target response; the second report compares the measured color response to the target response. 

This activity assumes that you have already created a print calibration curve  XX new print calibration curve for gray balance  in a previous activity

Task 1: Generate a Verification report to compare the predicted response to the target response

  1. In ColorFlow, click the Print Curves tab.
  2. In the Calibration Curves table, select XX new print calibration curve for gray balance.
  3. In the viewer window, click the Verification icon .
  4. In the Calibrated Output Verification dialog box, click the Measurements tab.
  5. In the Active Measurement list, select the predicted measurement and then click Report.
  6. In the Customer box, enter the report name: XX verification report to verify predicted response (where xx is your initials).
  7. Select the Compare to check box.
  8. Click Save and choose a location.
  9. Open the generated PDF to view the report.

Task 2: Generate a Verification report to compare the measured response to the target response

  1. In ColorFlow, click the Print Curves tab.
  2. In the Calibration Curves table, select XX new print calibration curve for gray balance.
  3. In the viewer window, click the Verification icon .
  4. In a real-life situation, you need to export the measurement chart you used to characterize the uncalibrated color response, print it using Prinergy, and measure it in ColorFlow to characterize the calibrated color response in order to generate the Verification report. For the purpose of this training, you import a measurement data:
    1. Click the Measurements tab.
    2. In the Inactive Measurements tab, click Import.
    3. Import the verification data file (Approval_GRACoL_VerificationData.cgt).
      The data file appears in the Inactive Measurements list. 
  5. In the Inactive Measurements list, select the imported measurement and then click Report.
  6. In the Customer box, enter the report name: XX verification report to verify calibrated color response (where xx is your initials).
  7. Select the Compare to check box.
  8. Click Calibration Target.
  9. Click Save and choose a location.
  10. Open the generated PDF to view the report.

Outcome

You have generated two Verification reports to verify if the predicted color response and the measured color response match the target.
