RGB Source Profile

[sRGB]*, [Gamma 1.5], [Gamma 1.8], [Gamma 2.4], [None], [Download Profile]

This setting allows you to specify the RGB profile (color data represented using the RGB (Red Green Blue) color model) that is appropriate for the characteristics of your monitor. This setting is applied when printing a document containing color images or graphics made by the RGB color model.


This setting specifies the industry standard definition for generic Windows computer monitors. If you are using an sRGB compatible monitor, you can print out colors close to how they appear on your monitor.

[Gamma 1.5], [Gamma 1.8], and [Gamma 2.4]

These settings enable you to select the gamma correct level of the RGB data. The higher the value, the darker the printout.


When this setting is selected, device dependent RGB data is converted into CMYK without applying the RGB profile.

[Download Profile]

Set this to use profiles downloaded to the machine. Up to 100 profiles can be saved.

If the machine receives data with a device independent (CIE based) color space definition, it is color processed with the specified settings. Therefore, 'RGB Source Profile' is not applied by the machine.
You can also download the profile from iW Management Console.
Device independent colors are not dependent on any particular device, such as a monitor, and are meant to be true representations of colors as perceived by the human eye. These color representations, called device independent color spaces, result from work carried out by the Commission Internationale d'Eclairage (CIE) and for that reason are also called CIE based color spaces.
If a profile with the name of "None" is downloaded to the machine, the profile is not applied and the [None] setting on the menu is applied.
