THEMATHEMATICS
OF COLOUR
A CLEAR
DIFFERENCE
The number of colours a 10-colour printer can produce
is virtually infinite, which makes creating the exact
colours and shades you need a very complex task.
Epson new Look-Up Table Technology (LUT) does this
consistently, time after time.
The benefits of Epson new Look-Up Table Technology
(LUT) can be seen in all areas of each superb print:
Epson new Look-Up Table Technology (LUT)
automatically converts RGB or CYMK colour
information and selects the optimum combination of
inks to be blended by the printer to create each
finished shade. This process is very fast and makes
best use of the expanded colour gamut to ensure you
get exactly the right colours.
• Maximises use of the wider colour gamut
• Ensures the highest fidelity to the original image
• Provides a smoother colour gamut for finely detailed
gradations between colours
• Reduces graininess in skin tones by optimising
the fine colour dispersion in each pixel. This is
particularly useful in portrait and commercial
photography
• Helps to virtually eliminate colour inconstancy
so prints look identical under any light conditions
