HP Designjet Z6800 and Z6600 Printer Series - HP Embedded Spectrophotometer

HP Embedded Spectrophotometer
The Z6800 printer series revolutionizes professional color workflows by using a built-in spectrophotometer for color calibration and profiling.
A spectrophotometer is a precision instrument that can determine the exact composition of the light that is reflected from a color patch. It splits the reflected light into different wavelength components and measures the strength of each component. The HP Embedded Spectrophotometer is mounted on the printhead carriage.
The Z6800 printers use the spectrophotometer to generate custom ICC profiles automatically for your preferred paper types. It then calibrates the printers to deliver print-to-print and printer-to-printer consistency with less than half the color error of earlier HP Designjets, under all environmental conditions, and even on unknown (not factory-profiled) paper types. A built-in white calibration tile, which is protected by an automatic shutter, ensures reliable measurements that meet international standards.
The printer, color-imaging pipeline, and professional-quality spectrophotometer with GretagMacbeth i1 color technology are integrated with the HP Color Center software for the Z6800. Giving the calibration and profiling processes direct access to the writing system allows precise control of ink levels and color separations for each printed color patch. The automated measurement process eliminates the need to handle the test print, provides repeatable drying times, and allows fast measurements with precise electromechanical positioning of the spectrophotometer over the color patch. This provides unprecedented ease of use and matches or exceeds the performance of more expensive offline, handheld profiling systems.
