Print calibration

Are you unsatisfied with the color accuracy or neutrality of BW photography? Our company owns state-of-the-art measuring devices and algorithms for ICC profiles generating. It means that FOMEI serves to both professionals and hobbyists custom calibration/profilation whatever compatible medium-printer pair. Thanks to measuring of interaction between paper and printer, “color vision” of this pair becomes known and ICC profile is generated. This ICC profile describes relationship between paper and printer precisely and makes corrections to the natural nonlinearities of color reproduction. Nonlinearities that are not compensable via sliders in the printer driver. Finally, ICC profile is added to the reproduction chain into application that support output color management (Adobe Photoshop, Corel PHOTO-PAINT, mirage…) or directly associated to the printer in OS (Windows only). This process results into color accuracy of the printed photos. Relative to the focus of FOMEI company, generic ICC profiles are not produced a priori for all existing photo-printers on today market. But library of ICC profiles of FOMEI Collection and FomeiJet medias is still growing and therefore many of you will have possibility to choose between generic (basic) and custom (high quality) ICC profile.
