Why you should complete this activity

In Prinergy Evo, calibration refers to the process of modifying the size of halftone dots to ensure that output has the intended tonal response. There are a number of reasons why you might choose to calibrate output:

Calibration is a complex subject and a full description is beyond the scope of this activity. Consult the Harmony User Guide for a detailed description of how to set up calibration curves for a Prinergy Evo workflow.

What you'll learn

The activity files provided for this exercise demonstrate five different combinations of plate curves and print curves. While other combinations are possible, the combinations chosen demonstrate the interaction between the two types of curves. For example, press marks may be calibrated independently from page content, they may be calibrated with the same curve that calibrates page content, or both press marks and page content may be calibrated with print curves and page curves multiplied together.
