I'm wondering if the embedded target profiles in the files I'm printing are being managed properly.I had a "roland tech" from a local shop come by and set up the color management system within…Continue
"Thank you very much Steven, you have explained and educated me on the part of our printer/rip that I needed clarification on for a while. I appreciate that you detailed the RGB color gamut for the roland printers but didn't just stop there.…"
"Answers to your questions are below. Please let me know if this helps. I have also put the link to the "infamous" color video Ladi Di references for anyone that is interested. I can offer a much longer discussion on color management and…"
"I have always used CMYK for wide format printing. I don't know why Roland would be any different. We manufactured signs for zoos, museums, theme parks, and many other high profile clients. But, you do you...not trying to change anyone's…"
"Bottom line..........the only useful applications I've ever found to use a limited CMYK palette is for offset printing ( ie. business cards, brochures, etc) I'm guessing that's why you use it and are most comfortable…"

I'm wondering if the embedded target profiles in the files I'm printing are being managed properly.I had a "roland tech" from a local shop come by and set up the color management system within Versaworks. I completely overlooked the fact that "Japan Standard.icc" was selected for the simulation target profile in the color management properties tab.
