  • Durst 500R and Gracol 7

    Can Caldera rip and Durst 500R printer achieve Gracol 7 specs? We print Epson proofs that are Gracol 7 and print Durst proof pointing to Gracol 7 there is a difference in color. I know that the gamut on the Durst 500r is limited, is our expectations realistic to match an Epson proof is that Gracol 7.

    Are you printing on the same media? Are both printers regularly calibrated?

    Do you have an ICC profile of the printer profile for the Durst for the media/resolution/passes etc? This profile can be compared to the profile for GRACoL.

    Does the Caldera RIP have a built in colour verification option?

    Print the IDEAlliance media wedge and verify that the numbers pass. This can be done with X-Rite i1 Profiler and an i1 Pro spectro, or with the free UPPCT tool and an and an i1 Pro spectro:
