Hi Sharon,

nice to see you got your spot on the interweb!

Question about color management on B/W machines: does the Fiery apply color management on B/W engines just like it does on color engines?

Hi Hans,

There is shared technology between the Fierys for Color vs. Black and White Only engines, but the configuration of these systems is very different.

Essentially we have under the hood similar imaging functionality for our color systems as for our black and white systems which you can see under the Imaging Tab in the Driver or Job Properties. For example we enable contone rendering in order to take advantage of our text/graphics/image quality features. And more recently in Fiery System 8 for black and white devices we allow for user definable screening.

The ColorWise tab is not available but under the hood we still utilize embedded profiles if they are part of the PS or PDF.
