Paper Abstract

Essential elements of technology for analog off-press proofing are reviewed. They deal with the three steps of image capture, origin of color, and techniques to form the proof on a receptor. Silver Halide and Polymer Imaging Systems appear to be the most versatile media for image capture. Among physical imaging methods only electro-photography gained significant acceptance for analog proofing. The technologies have been combined in different ways for proofing applications resulting in a distinct pattern of performance with respect to color and density match, accuracy of registration, and dot gain. Future systems will probably evolve in the direction of higher productivity, higher resolution, and reduced environmental impact.
