This has created excellent revenue opportunities for commercial printers who specialize in this area.
In this installment of “Let Data Drive your Print Quality Comparisons” Mary Schilling discusses the importance of chroma, how it’s defined within the context of print quality analysis and differences between inkjet and offset.
Eric Wiesner of HP provides the 4th installment in our print head strategy series. Wiesner provides some history on HPs print head developments and highlights the factors that drove HP to select thermal print heads for their production devices in the graphics market.

Marco Boer of I.T. Strategies talks about the component parts of various OEM’s aqueous inkjet programs that are enabling inks to “stick it’ on challenging surfaces with a particular focus on aqueous coatings.
This the first in a series of articles by Mary Schilling that will drill down on specific print quality metrics, what they mean, how they are measured and what factors in your printing process can affect them. Optical Density is one of the important quality metrics that can be objectively measured and it can be correlated to a number of other quality metrics.
Ricoh today announces the development of a new ink technology. This new ink will soon be brought to market as an additional option to current and future clients on the Ricoh Pro™ VC60000 continuous feed inkjet printing platform.
Mary Schilling discusses objective inkjet print quality comparisons and the benefits of a data-driven approach. Objective print quality analysis provides clear comparative data and removes all personal bias and visual subjective deficiencies when reviewing prints off competing inkjet devices. Inkjet beauty is more than skin deep!
