Global Inkjet Systems (GIS) has developed the Atlas Image Quality (IQ) toolset, offering print quality enhancement for industrial digital printing.

The Atlas IQ toolset includes: ultra-fast binary and greyscale screeners; nozzle density and missing nozzle compensation; colour management, channel linearisation and ink limiting; dynamic registration, including alignment, rotation and skew; and print output simulation.

The Atlas IQ toolset is a range of image quality tools offered through intelligent software that provide a ‘superior level’ of image management and compensation for inkjet printheads. Drawing on GIS’ wealth of expertise in the market, Atlas IQ tools are available within the GIS Atlas Software suite and can be used for a variety of applications, for inline RIP-on-the-fly and offline RIP-to-file. They can be accessed as bundled software, standalone or SDKs, and are compatible with GIS and third-party RIP systems, user interfaces and data path drive electronics.

Simon Edwards, business manager, software at GIS, said, ‘We are now moving into a new era of industrial digital inkjet printing with increased printhead capability and high data rate drive electronics, resulting in faster print speeds and higher resolution.  When combined with state-of-the-art software, high image quality and productivity can be achieved, opening new markets and product opportunities. The application of intelligent software systems such as the latest GIS Atlas IQ toolset is becoming one of the most significant differentiators between average print and superior print performance.’
