  1. Roland ColorChoice Software Training

  2. Goals • To present an overview of the Roland ColorChoice Software Solution • To provide knowledge for successful installation • To train on features and capabilities of the program

  3. Agenda • Introduction and Program Overview • Color Theory • Installation on MAC & Windows • Components of Program • Program Workflow • Color Theory • Printing from Mac & Windows • Troubleshooting

  4. Introduction Roland

  5. Software Description • Roland ColorChoice is a PostScript printer driver for the Roland Hi-Fi Jet printer available on both Macintosh and Windows platforms

  6. Software Overview • Software-embedded Adobe PostScript 3 RIP • Platforms supported: Mac, Win 95, 98, NT 4 • Open architecture ICC color management • Print Directly from any DTP application • Familiar Interface • Easy-to-use • Powerful

  7. Printing from Application

  8. Hardware Recommendations Windows Macintosh • Pentium II 233MHz • 128+ MB RAM • 2 GB free hard disk • Windows 95/98 or Windows NT 4.0 • Power Macintosh or compatible • 128+ MB RAM • 2 Gb free Hard Disk • MacOS 8 or later

  9. Windows Platform Standard IEEE 1284 parallel cable Macintosh Platform MAC/PCI Card w/ standard IEEE 1284 cable Connectivity Options

  10. Color Theory Roland

  11. RIP • RIP - Raster Image Processor • Process of converting pixels into lines of dots at various sizes, and densities for each separate CMYK color for printing. • What does a RIP really do? • Converts design into separate CMYK colors • Uses halftone screening or diffusion patterns to fool the eye into seeing continuous tones • Directly drives large format printers

  12. Color gamut • The gamut of colors each space can reproduce. • Visible gamut is the eye. • Visible > Pantone > RGB > > Hifi > CMYK

  13. Rendering Intents • Defines how output / print colors that are outside the color gamut of the printer. • Perceptual • Relative Colorimetric • Saturation • Spot Color

  14. Rendering Intents This intent is best for photographic images. The relationship between colors in original is scaled proportionally to fit the output device’s color gamut.

  15. Rendering Intents Is best for images, such as logos, where the original needs to exactly match the output. Colors that falls outside of printer’s gamut are converted at the edge of the gamut, which may reduce the total numbers of colors available. For this reason, this intent should only be used when there are relatively few colors in an image

  16. Rendering Intents This intent is best for images where true color matching is NOT as important as vivid colors. This intent may be used to boost colors within a photographic image.

  17. Rendering Intents Spot Color This intent produces the greatest saturation possible, should only be used for NON-photographic images. Examples may include charts and graphs.
