There several ways to increase red intensity:
Setting new Color Calibration (CLC) references. There are some points where Color Calibration is recommended in order to maintain proper Color Management. One of these points is performing a Color Calibration when Print Heads are changed:
Setting RIP sliders in order to increase presence (%) of a given color.
RIPs have the option to increase the presence of a given color by setting up the percentage of a given colour density. This way, setting a higher presence of Magenta will redefine the presence of each colour and increase the red levels.
This will not lead to print with more red in absolute values, but printing more magenta in comparison with other colors leading to more intense reds.
Vivid modes are defined to allow increasing ink saturation while maintaining Color Consistency since printer Color Management tools (i.e. Color Calibration) are still available as defined.
Using Vivid modes you will be able to increase ink saturation to produce high-quality applications such as the Self Adhesive Vinyls shown below:
Vivid modes are specially designed for vinyl, banner and paper, providing 50% higher saturation (Compared to the HP Latex 360 Printer when using the same print mode):
The reason why there are Vivid modes on the HP Latex 500 series is the new curing module that provides high efficiency curing, and higher curing capacity.
To sum up, the new curing module of the HP Latex 500 series brings these advantages:
In order to start using Vivid modes, please select the category and name of the desired substrate:
