LaserSoft Imaging Targets for Color Calibration
Advanced Calibration Targets
A “Target” is a type of measuring table that calculates the exact color recognition capability of a scanner and identifies the singularities of said scanner. Targets are supported by the ISO Norm 12641. However, a process is currently underway, led by the ISO-Committee, seeking to enhance said Targets. LaserSoft Imaging now offers both color calibration Targets in accordance with the IT8 Standard 12641 (later Part 1) as well as newly designed Advanced Targets (later Part 2).
LaserSoft Imaging produces its own IT8-Targets, ensuring the highest precision in Target production. All around the world, companies trust the unflinching quality of LaserSoft Imaging Targets. The Reflective Target option generates a color profile for the scanning of “top-view” material, such as photo prints, while the Transparent Target option generates a color profile for the scanning of translucent film materials, such as slides.

NEW: The Advanced Part 2 Targets offer more measuring fields than the Standard Part 1 Targets. Part 1 Targets use intelligent algorithms and important measurement points to calculate a calibration profile, while Part 2 profiles contain significantly more measurement points and Part 2 Targets possess additional measurement fields for dark and pastel color tones. The profiles according to Part 2 thus enable an overall increased accuracy.
