The conversion method between the PCO and SCO decides how data is converted in order to align the color response of the SCO to the PCO. The conversion method is the type of curves or DeviceLinks that ColorFlow generates in order to align the SCO color output to that of the PCO. You can select a different conversion method than the default recommendation, and later adjust the generated curves or DeviceLinks in order to fine-tune the conversion.The conversion curves and DeviceLinks that ColorFlow generates are available in your Prinergy Process Templates in the Prinergy workflow.
Note: Depending on the DeviceLink options you choose, the gamut of the SCO is either mapped or clipped. All colors from the PCO can only be reproduced on the SCO when the SCO's gamut entirely encompasses the PCO's gamut. You can generate an SCO verification report to see how well the SCO gamut covers the PCO gamut.
To use a DeviceLink profile, do the following:
You cannot generate a conversion DeviceLink for a discontinuous flexographic SCO.
Note: If the SCO device condition has extended process inks, they are calibrated to match the Spot Color Tone Value (SCTV) response of the same ink names present in the PCO. For extended process inks not present in the PCO, linear SCTV calibration is performed.
