New Targets for Scanner Calibration

March 14th, 2018 · 2 Comments · News

LaserSoft Imaging once again demonstrates pioneering spirit with the production of “Advanced Targets” for Scanner Calibration, more measuring fields and increased Target accuracy. For many years now, Scanner-Calibration has been subject to the IT8-Standard. Scanner-Calibration measures the individual color recognizing capabilities of a scanner and creates a unique Color-Profile. The generated Color-Profile helps software with color management, ensuring that images maintain their color-integrity on a wide-range of devices (e.g. monitors and printers).

The ISO-Norm 12641 is part of the IT8-Standard. The ISO-Norm 12641 is currently being expanded by the ISO-Committee, in order to do justice to the steadily increasing importance of color accuracy. We at LaserSoft Imaging are very impressed by the reliable precision of these Advanced Targets and have already begun Advanced Target production. These 12641 (-2 ISO-Candidate) Advanced Targets will be offered in our Online Store until 01.06.18 at a special introductory price.

    I’m a bit confused of what IT8 calibration targets I would need with Silverfast Archive suite to scan reflective prints. They all vary from 4 x 6, 5 x 3-1/2 and some even smaller or square. Would I need to buy a color target to match each size from Silverfast?

    Dear Donald,
    For scanning reflective prints you’ll a reflective target. The size of the target is arbitrary. Just choose which size you prefer. You do not need multiple targets for differently sized prints.
