Verify color consistency in Command WorkStation
You can verify the color consistency of your jobs by printing out a control bar and measuring it against a selected reference.
Before you begin:
Make sure that you have selected a control bar that is compatible with your measuring device.
Make sure that you have defined dE tolerance values.
Connect your measuring device to the computer.
- Print a job.
- In Job Center, select the job. In the toolbar, click Verifier.
- On the Job List/Preview tab, expand the job file and double-click the job.
Verifier populates the left hand table with the L*a*b* color values of the reference.
- Follow the on-screen instructions to measure the
printed control bar.
Verifier displays the following information:
The right-hand table displays the L*a*b* measurement results.
The dE table displays the dE value achieved for each color.
The Results tab displays an analysis of the measurement results and shows whether or not the job has passed verification.
- Do one of the following:
Saving the measurement data to a JDF file provides a record of the color accuracy. You can save multiple sets of measurement data to one JDF file.
The measurement data are sent back to Command WorkStation and displayed in on the Verify Control Bar 1 panel. The job receives the status Verified or Verification failed.
If color accuracy could not be verified, you may be able to optimize the result.
You can create a remote container from verified results. A remote container contains all the information that is needed to create a color-accurate proof at multiple sites.
