A previous activity shows how to align your printing device to an industry specification by adding the device as the PCO and selecting the industry specification as the PCO simulation target. You can also align a device with an industry specification by adding the industry specification as the PCO and adding your device as the SCO, and then aligning the SCO with the PCO.
Goal Create a new color setup that contains a CMYK reference device as the PCO, and a proofer that you created in a previous activity as the SCO.
Task 1: Create a new color setup and add a CMYK Reference as the PCO
In ColorFlow, click the Color Setups tab, and then click the Add button . The Devices dialog box opens automatically. If necessary, open it manually by selecting View >Devices or by double-clicking the color setup viewer.
From the Devices dialog box, drag the CMYK Reference to the PCO position in the viewer window.
In the Color Setups table, double-click the name of the color setup that you just created and enter XX Proofer to Industry Spec (where XX = your initials).

Task 2: Add a proofer as the SCO
In this activity, we will use the existing device condition for the proofer.
Double-click the color setup viewer.
In the Devices dialog box, Drag Proofer A to the SCO position in the viewer window.
In the SCO object in the viewer window, click the Properties icon .
In the Resolution list, select 1440x720.
In the Substrate list, select SM240.
Task 3: Complete the color setup
Click the Conversion icon .
Keep the default settings and click OK.
Task 4: Output a page using the color setup in Prinergy
In Prinergy, create a new job, and name it as XX Proofer to Industry Spec (where XX = your initials).
