SetGoldâ„¢ is a wizard-based color utility designed to create
high quality grey balance or "Golden Stateâ€ calibration profiles
for the Navigator RIP. Since accurate color proofing is only
possible if devices can be calibrated - and profiles optimized -
for given ink and paper combinations, utilities such as SetGold
must be used as part of the process control procedure.
A grey balanced Golden State profile is the first step* in
building an output profile for a new printing device or new
media, ink set etc. This procedure can determine the correct
inking and gray balance - and correct the tonal scale values for
a new device.
