    Hi!!
    I've a X700 xerox printer. They come with I1 for color calibration, have a very good resolution.

    I want manege colors of x700 to reach closest as possible from my heidelberg XL75.

    The most important factors for a good colour managment are the kind of RIP and the type of paper you are going to use for your Xerox.

    The steps for creating an ICC profile are the same for every printer device and nothing special for the X700.

    But be aware that the XEROX doesnt print constant colours everyday. There will be some colour shift depending on the condition of the machine/toner.

    Therefore you will have to recalibrate periodically and maybe create a new ICC profile from time to time.

    If you dont print a standard on your Heidelberger then you have to create an output (simulation) profile first.

    Color reproduction, in printing, is based on:
    - Printing Device (Settings: Resolution, lineature, density, etc.)
    - Paper (Coated, UnCoated, treated for digital, etc.)
    - Ink/Toner (saturation, transparency and tack)

    Therefore, you need to calibrate your Xerox with no color management option at all and follow the calibration process provided by Xerox.

    Use the paper you want to use to simulate your Offset press.

    Print your IT8 target and pick up a good and representative sample.

    Create your ICC profile with required settings (TAC, black generation)

    If your Offset press meets a standard, use the ICC profile corresponding to. If it's not the case, create an ICC profile for your offset machine.

    After, it depends of your workflow.

    You would load into the Xerox's Rip the Xerox ICC profile as output and Press profile as Input. Rendering intent will be determined by a color assessment and client's need.

    Or you can create ICC DeviceLink profile if your workflow is able to support it. In this case input: Offset->Xerox

    Hope that helps
