|Running Dot Proof Engine
Revolutionary Dot-Analysis engine of VisualDot
The foundation of VisualDot's powerful capabilities to produce
top quality screened proofs is in its proven Dot analytical
engine. With its Dot-Analysis engine, VisualDot analyzes the
CMYK dot patterns and screen angles of high resolution separations
and reproduces these by creating arrangements of hard dots
on the proofer - right down to rosettes, fine line art, text
at just 1 point, and even defects such as moire patterns.
The results on the best quality inkjet printers are stunning
and contract-quality proofs of up to 200 lines per inch can
be produced. The quality of screened proofs produce by VisualDot
is dependent on the resolution and other specifications of
the color printer being used.
VisualDot's Dot Analysis and resampling engine Delivering
Top Quality proofs just as they'll appear on the press exactly,
in printing with normal rip software and inkjet printer.
It is not confusing to understand the workflow of Dot-proofing.
You can imagine the exactly same workflow of continuous color
proofing. For Dot-proofing with VisualDot, the only differences
from your familiar continuous color proofing are that you
need to add VisualDot in front of your existing color proofing
workflow and that you need to import 1 BIT TIFF files instead
of original PS files to simulate screen dots on the press.
You can keep using your own color proofing workflow with your
existing color proofing rip software and profiling system.
VisualDot is independent to the Rip software and VisualDot
allows you to use any kind of color proofing rip software,
with which you feel comfortable and you're experienced. VisualDot
does not change any of color information from original data.
It just represents as things are in original
like colors as well as screen dots.
However, maintaining screen dots will actually help color
matching too. Dot-proof output can cover
the color on the press output which continuous printing output
cannot match without screen dots.
