we own Xerox DC250 digital copier with EFI RIP (Splash I think). We use Command Workstation 5.3 to manage printing jobs and the RIP.
I also own used i1 Pro/ES-1000 Rev. A with UV Cut. Profiles for display made with this spectro are fine.
However, I'm not able to create profile for DC250.
I have found this thread:
I have linearized DC250 with ColorWise tools before profiling.
Used settings to print patches (IT873) on different kinds of papers, measure them with Basiccolor Catch and created profiles with Basiccolor Print.
All of the profiles create very muddy colors, totally off. Used optimized settings (black with 40 %, black start 20%, total ink 400 or 260 %), no success. Also tried general Laser printer settings and Profilemaker 5 Docucolor 204 setting, same (somewhat worse) results.
Simulation/input profile is Fogra27, output is profile I have made. Of course, when printing measurement patches, Colorwise is set to None (so it's using linearization), output linearization settings like Coated 1, Plain, Heavy used for each profile separately.
What's strange is that I owned ColorMunki Design before and profiles created under same settings in CommandWorkstation were great. However, ColorMunki could not linearize DC250, so I sold it.
Also tried to use EFI Color Profile Suite in demo mode to print&measure patches under EFI RIP optimized settings from CPS and create ICC in Basiccolor Print – same results.
i1Diagnostics test shows that i1Pro is working and all tests are successfull.
Would be VERY thankful to everyone who provides me some more info on what I'm doing wrong. Information about profiling Xerox Docucolors with 3rd party tools are very scarse. Thanks in advance.
