Coming with Version 2.5 of CRUSE Design Studio, Cruse offers a new software module CRUSE Profile Scan allowing fast and easy printer profiling. Profile Scan is usable with nearly all existing CRUSE scanners including the new medium-size series.
How does it work
At the heart of CRUSE Profile Scan is our well-established scanner profiling method using CRUSE ICC Professional Profile. Being optimized for the highest color fidelity, our sensor, optics, and lights can be used to measure color deviations up to a very small scale.
Compared to standard spectral measuring devices, our scanners can acquire measurements at a much higher pace, allowing the measurement of entire charts within seconds.
At the same time, Cruse scanners come with an exceptionally large color gamut (see picture on the right) that entirely contains the gamut of print devices like inkjet printers. To put it in simpler words: while the scanner gamut is limited, is it clearly big enough to profile printers.
When using spectral devices for profiling, the number of color patches is usually limited for practical and efficiency reasons. Profiling using CRUSE scanners is basically unlimited in the number of patches. As a higher number of patches in profiling patches is significantly contributing to the profile’s quality, this method more than overcompensates the restricted scanner gamut in typical applications.
