You can use reports to analyze a device response in a device condition, compare a device response to a target, or provide information for troubleshooting potential problems. The following are available reports:
Print Characterization reports
Print Characterization reports are useful for documenting the state of a device in a device condition for future reference or for determining if a device is in an optimum state. It provides the following:
Comparison reports are useful for identifying problem color builds, or for determining the accuracy of a color reproduction. You can also use Comparison reports to analyze new stocks, inks or other variables. It provides the following information:
When comparing a calibration to an ISO TVI curve, you can use a single ISO TVI curve for CMYK, or use one ISO TVI curve for CMY and the next, higher ISO TVI curve for black (K). For example, in the Compare to list, if you select ISO TVI Curve A, ISO TVI Curve A is used for CMY and K. If you select ISO TVI Curve A and B, ISO TVI Curve A is used for CMY and ISO TVI Curve B is used for K.
If a PCO simulation definition has the G7 check box cleared, the Verification Report definition dialog that is launched for that PCO will display two options if the Compare to check box is selected:
If the PCO simulation definition has the G7 check box selected, the Verification Report definition dialog that is launched for that PCO will display various options if the Compare to check box is selected (they will display but be unavailable if the Compare to check box is cleared):
A comparison report generated for a PCO with G7 selected, and Reference Device Condition selected in the report definition dialog, has the following changes from other comparison reports:
