printing pdf on DesignJet Click VS embedded webserver

Product Name: Z6200
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

We have a Z6200 at work and Designjet Click is fantastic for every day office usage, but the Pantone colors are off.

PDF>DesignJet Click - Pantone Color will not match 

PDF>Embedded PS webserver - Pantone colors will match

Validation - both signs were compared to a real Pantone swatch 


I am wondering the following:

1. how does Click handle Pantone colors?

2. how does Click handle aRGB and sRGB photos?

3. What are the default rendering intents?

 

Thanks,

 

Tony

Re: printing pdf on DesignJet Click VS embedded webserver

Hi Tomy,

 

You are right: DesignJet Click does not perform advanced color management. This means everything is treated as sRGB (which has no rendering intents).

 

Embedded web server, and the PostScript driver, -on the contrary- can handle all the advanced color management features you need: Pantone spot colors, dealing with embedded ICC profiles (not only AdobeRGB), and rendering intents.


The default rendering intent in your DesignJet printer is Perceptual, but you can manually change it in the printer's front panel, under Settings -> Printing preferences -> Color.

 

I hope this helps.

You can find the PostScript driver for your printer here:
