Direct Imaging Colour Printing Océ Direct Imaging Produces Inherently High Colour Consistency

This white paper describes the Océ Direct Imaging colour printing process, which uses seven toner colours and partitive colour mixing. This process is insensitive to effects like humidity and temperature, and produces inherently high colour consistency. Also described is the way in which CMYK values are printed on paper with the seven colours.

This white paper is part of a set of white papers to explain the Océ technologies and applications. See also the white paper ‘Trapping technology’.

1 Direct Imaging: inherently high colour consistency
The Océ CPS800/CPS900 is based on Direct Imaging (DI) printing technology, with seven toner colours and partitive colour mixing. Direct Imaging is a digital printing process, in which the toner image is created directly, without charging, organic photoconductor, laser or LED illumination or other external means. Direct Imaging is therefore insensitive to effects like humidity and temperature, and produces inherently high colour consistency.
More knowledge about this colour technology will help users to achieve better and more accurate colour print quality, to find interesting printing applications and, in general, to understand the operation of the Océ CPS800/CPS900 colour printer.
