What is the Best Order for Calibration?

If you perform multiple calibrations, perform them in the order shown below.

imagePRESS V900 / V800 / V700

imagePRESS V1350

Calibration on your printer

For the available calibration types, see the manuals for the printer.
Automatic gradation adjustment
A change in the usage environment (temperature or humidity), successive printing, and some other conditions affect and cause fluctuations in the maximum density and balance of the CMYK toner to be printed. Automatic gradation adjustment is a function for maintaining the best density balance at all times.
How to Perform Automatic Gradation Adjustment
Shading correction
This function corrects uneven color densities that may occur in a halftone area of a printed image.
 "Adjusting Print and Finish Quality" > "Adjust Image Quality" > "Correcting Uneven Density" in the User's Guide
Automatic color tone correction (Only for imagePRESS V900 / V800 /V700)
You can benefit from this function if you use it when you notice a change in the color balance of secondary or higher colors (combination of CMYK) after automatic gradation calibration has been performed regularly. You can use automatic color tone correction when the Duplex Color Image Reader Unit is mounted.

Calibration on the imagePRESS Server

The imagePRESS Server determines the CMYK values for a print job on the assumption that the toner density of the printer is in the standard balanced state. In this calibration mode, the output density for each CMYK color is measured to calibrate the gaps with the standard values.
