Why Quantone™ Processing?

  • There are surprisingly few multi-bit screening methods
  • Some alternatives are extremely slow and compute intensive
  • Other alternatives are inappropriate for sequential ink printing, where mis-registration happens
  • Another alternative has screening dropouts at certain tone levels
  • Another alternative has a side effect of increased screening noise
  • Most alternatives require difficult, yet critical linearization
  • Quantone™ was specifically created for multiple graylevel and has none of the above limitations
  • Quantone™ can surpass offset quality for production inkjet
  • Quantone™ removes the design constraint that printers must produce equally-spaced gray levels.
  • Quantone™ can be used with any type of half-toning algorithm
  • Quantone™ can be used with any number of output graylevels
  • Quantone™ pre-linearizes while greatly expanding the number of screened output levels
