Installation precautions
Installation precautions
Avoid installing the machine in the following locations
• Avoid locations subject to temperature and humidity extremes, whether low or high.
For example, avoid installing the machine near water faucets, hot water heaters, humidifiers,
air conditioners, heaters, or stoves.
• Avoid installing the machine in direct sunlight.
If this is unavoidable, use curtains to shade the machine. Be sure that the curtains do not block
the machine's ventilation slots or louvers, or interfere with the electrical cord or power supply.
• Avoid poorly ventilated locations.
This machine generates a slight amount of ozone etc. during normal use. Although sensitivity
to ozone etc. may vary, this amount is not harmful. Ozone etc. may be more noticeable during
extended use or long production runs, especially in poorly ventilated rooms. It is
recommended that the room be appropriately ventilated, sufficient to maintain a comfortable
working environment, in areas of machine operation. In addition, do not install this machine
where it exhausts directly onto a person.
• Avoid locations where a considerable amount of dust accumulates.
• Avoid locations where ammonia gas is emitted.
12
Chapter 1 - Preface
imagePRESS C800 Series
Installation precautions
• Avoid locations near volatile or flammable materials, such as alcohol or paint thinner.
• Avoid locations that are subject to vibration.
For example, avoid installing the machine on unstable floors or stands.
• Avoid exposing the machine to rapid changes in temperature.
If the room in which the machine is installed is cold but rapidly heated, water droplets
(condensation) may form inside the machine. This may result in a noticeable degradation in
the quality of the copied image, the inability to properly scan an original, or the copies having
no printed image at all.
• Avoid installing the machine near computers or other precision electronic equipment.
Electrical interference and vibrations generated by the machine during printing can adversely
affect the operation of such equipment.
• Avoid installing the machine near televisions, radios, or similar electronic equipment.
The machine might interfere with sound and picture signal reception. Insert the power plug
into a dedicated power outlet, and maintain as much space as possible between the machine
and other electronic equipment.
• Contact an authorized Canon dealer if communication is unavailable.
Depending on your locale or your telephone connection, you may be unable to perform data
communication. In this case, contact your local authorized Canon dealer.
• Do not remove the machine's leveling feet.
imagePRESS C800 Series
Chapter 1 - Preface
13
Installation precautions
Do not remove the machine's leveling feet after the machine has been installed.
If you put weight on the front of the machine while the drawers are pulled out, the machine
may fall forward. To prevent this from happening, make sure that the machine's leveling feet
are in place.
• Avoid installing the machine at high altitudes of about 3,000 meters above sea level, or
higher.
Machines with a hard disk may not operate properly when used at high altitudes of about 3,000
meters above sea level, or higher.
Select a safe power supply
• Plug the machine into an outlet that is 208 V AC 20 A or greater.
• Make sure that the power supply for the machine is safe, and has a steady voltage.
• Do not connect other electrical equipment to the same power outlet to which the machine is
connected.
• Do not connect the power cord to a multiplug power strip, as this may cause a fire or
electrical shock.
• The power cord may become damaged if it is stepped on, affixed with staples, or if heavy
objects are placed on it. Continued use of a damaged power cord can lead to an accident, such
as a fire or electrical shock.
• The power cord should not be taut, as this may lead to a loose connection and cause
overheating, which could result in a fire.
• If excessive stress is applied to the connection part of the power cord, it may damage the
power cord or the wires inside the machine may disconnect. This could result in a fire. Avoid
the following situations:
• Connecting and disconnecting the power cord frequently.
• Tripping over the power cord.
• The power cord is bent near the connection part, and continuous stress is being applied to
the power outlet or the connection part.
• Applying excessive force on the power plug.
Moving the machine
If you intend to move the machine, even to a location on the same floor of your building, contact
your local authorized Canon dealer beforehand. Do not attempt to move the machine yourself.
Provide Adequate Installation Space
Provide enough space on each side of the machine for unrestricted operation.

Handling precautions
Handling precautions
Do not attempt to disassemble or modify the machine.
Some parts inside the machine are subject to high voltages and temperatures. Take adequate
precautions when inspecting the inside of the machine. Do not carry out any inspections that are
not described in the manuals for this machine.
Be careful not to spill liquid or drop any foreign objects, such as paper clips or staples inside the
machine. If a foreign object comes into contact with electrical parts inside the machine, it might
cause a short circuit and result in a fire or electrical shock.
If there is smoke, or unusual noise, immediately turn the main power switch OFF, disconnect the
power cord from the power outlet, and then call your local authorized Canon dealer. Using the
machine in this state may cause a fire or electrical shock. Also, avoid placing objects around the
power plug so that the machine can be disconnected whenever necessary.
Do not turn the main power switch OFF or open the front covers while the machine is in
operation. This may result in paper jams.
Do not use flammable sprays, such as spray glue, near the machine. There is a danger of
ignition.

Media for your output
Media catalog for media selection
PRISMAsync controls the media definition centrally with the media catalogue. The controller's
media-based workflow PRISMAsync results in less mistakes. PRISMAsync operating concept on
page 28 (See )
When you prepare a job, you can select media from the media catalog. The media catalog stores
attributes for all media that are key to the print quality, such as size, weight, media type, color,
media family and surface. (See Settings Editor media attributes on page 294)
A media family is a group of media that has the same specifications and uses the same color
output profile. (See Color reproduction for your output on page 26)
After the job submission, use the schedule to see which media the job requires and when to
assign these media to paper trays.
Temporary media
During the job preparation you can also temporarily specify media for a job. Temporary media
are not part of the media catalog. When the job is printed on temporary media, you can find these
temporary media in the media section of the System view on the control panel. When you want
to use these media more often, you can add the temporary media to the media catalog. In the
Settings Editor you can define the attributes for these new media.
The temporary media remains available in the System view as long as there are jobs in the queue
that use these temporary media, or these temporary media are assigned to a paper tray.
Media and image quality
Media has a big influence on the image quality and the productivity of a print system. The
performance of a print system, the print quality and the consumption of consumables depend on
media factors, such as:
• Media type
• Media weight
• Surface
• Moisture content
• Smoothness
To ensure optimal output quality and performance, media must comply with the paper
specifications of your print system. Store the media in a dry environment away from direct
sunlight. Before you load the media into the paper trays, it is important to check the media
sheets.
For information detailing how to check and prepare media, see:
Check and prepare media before loading on page 130

Color reproduction for your output
Color reproduction for your output
PRISMAsync color reproduction
The color management of PRISMAsync controls the reproduction of colors and handles the
conversion of input colors (RGB, CMYK, spot colors) to printed colors on paper. PRISMAsync has
two instruments for easy color management across the entire workflow, color presets and media
families, so that the operator does not need to perform color management tasks on a job-by-job
basis.
Color experts can use more color management functions with the advanced color management
license.
Color Presets
The PRISMAsync color presets simplify the complexity of color management. You can select an
appropriate color preset when you prepare a print job with a printer driver or PRISMA software.
An automated workflow or a hotfolder can also link a color preset to a job. The use of color
presets saves time and does not require an in-depth knowledge on color.
[3] The color settings in the printer driver
PRISMAsync includes the following default color presets:
• Office documents
This color preset is optimal for color reproduction of text and graphic lines in office documents.
PRISMAsync converts the colors to more saturated colors for the printed output.
• Photographic content
This color preset is optimal for the reproduction of photographs, pictures, and images.
Create new color presets in the Settings Editor. (See System configuration on page 182)

Color reproduction for your output
Media Families
A media family is a set of media that has comparable specifications, such as surface, color and
substrate type. A media family defines the color output profiles for the media. Each media family
has three different output profiles, for the halftone screens Normal, Fine, and Error-diffusion.
When you have more than one halftone screen in a single job or page, PRISMAsync automatically
applies the related output profiles for optimal color management in the job.
When you add new media to the media catalog, you specify the media family.
Advanced color management
The Advanced color management license offers the following color features:
• Device simulation, to simulate or proof other print engines or offset presses with your print
system.
• Device Link support, to import Device Link profiles for special CMYK conversions.
• Named color profile import and export, to extend the functionality of spot color libraries.
• Information bars, to print extra metadata on printed output. There is one default information
bar, but you can compose other information bars. Information bar selection is possible in the
printer driver, PRISMAprepare, and via automated workflows or hotfolders.
• Color control bars, to print extra color patches for control of color output via FOGRA
verification. Using a color bar you can check the ink density, dot grain and contrast. Use default
or compose custom color bars. The color bar selection is available in the printer driver,
PRISMAprepare, and via automated workflows or hotfolders.
• Color mappings, to convert RGB, CMYK to a specific color, for example, your corporate color.
Color mappings are useful to map colors in the input file to a fixed color of a spot color library.
• Leave out separations, to exclude specific spot colors from printing. You can exclude layers for
printing when you map the colors of these layers to a spot color with the value “None”.
For more PRISMAsync color information, see More PRISMAsync color information on page 266.
Calibration
Daily printer calibration is very important to maintain high quality color reproduction. Media
family calibration is important to maintain consistent color reproduction levels for all the media
you use. The control panel indicates when printer calibration is needed. (See About calibration on
page 160)

PRISMAsync operating concept
PRISMAsync operating concept
PRISMAsync makes print, copy and scan jobs intuitive and productive. This fully integrated
controller supports the setup of the workflow, prepress and job routing. The following concepts
support your way of working.
• Task-based workflow
The task-based workflow structures the tasks for the staff involved with the print system.
• Print operator is in the central position of the workflow
The control panel is the central information point for the print operator. The print operator is
responsible for the job planning and the print production, but can also perform last-minute job
changes and color management from the control panel.
• Media-based workflow
The media catalog is an integrated, central catalog with predefined media that meet the print
system specifications.
• Two print modes
There are two printing modes: the document printing mode and the optional transaction
printing mode (via IPDS or PCL6). A system reboot is not necessary to switch between the
printing modes.
Document printing workflow
The document printing workflow describes the route from the job preparation to the finishing and
delivery of the printed output. The document printing workflow has three phases:
1. Job preparation
Prepress staff defines the print document and job settings, and submits the print job to the
PRISMAsync controller. The prepress staff uses PRISMA software, a printer driver, automated
workflows or hotfolders to prepare and submit the jobs.
2. Job planning
Print jobs arrive in one of the following PRISMAsync job locations: a DocBox , the list of
waiting jobs or the list of scheduled jobs. The active workflow profile determines how
toPRISMAsync route the jobs. The print operator is responsible for the job planning.
3. Print job production
The print system prints and finishes jobs according to the job sequence in the list of
scheduled jobs. The print operator enables the system to keep running.

PRISMAsync operating concept
The print operators can concentrate on the job planning and the print production. Therefore, the
print operator does the following tasks:
• Starts up the print system.
• Prints the jobs and prepares copy and scan jobs.
• Makes proof prints.
• Performs last-minute job changes.
• Makes sure that all consumables needed for the jobs are available during the day.
• Carries out maintenance routines, such as a daily calibration procedure or a media registration.
Trained operators are allowed to carry out specific maintenance tasks for operators. For example,
correction procedures to clean machine parts or to improve the image quality.
Expert tasks, such as media catalog management and advanced color management, belong to
the role of the system administrator and the key operator.
The key operator is also responsible for mechanical maintenance tasks and maintenance
procedures via the control panel (local key operator settings). (See System configuration and
maintenance on page 182 )
NOTE
This guide is based on the roles and tasks as described above. However, you may work in a print
environment that has different needs. For example, in small organizations operators can do
prepress tasks as well as print operator tasks.
Media-based workflow
The media catalog is the backbone of the media-based workflow. The media catalog contains the
media that the print system supports.
The prepress staff select the media for the job from the media catalog. The control panel shows
the print operator the media the job needs.
The media and color expert defines the
media and color settings once in the media
catalog.
Prepress staff select the required media from
the media catalog.
Print operator loads and assigns the media in the paper trays.
[6] Media-based workflow
During the initial configuration of the print system, the media catalog is filled with media and
media attributes. Media belong to a media family, which ensures optimal color output settings.
(See Color reproduction for your output on page 26 and Settings Editor media attributes on
page 294)
When you work with the media catalog, you can take advantage of the following benefits:
30
Chapter 2 - Explore the print system
imagePRESS C800 Series
PRISMAsync operating concept
• The media in the media catalog store print quality attributes that the entire print system uses.
Each time you select the media from the media catalog, the print system automatically applies
the same media quality settings.
• The control panel, the printer driver and the PRISMA software access the same media catalog.
• You can use the media catalog for copy jobs.
Define the media attributes with the Settings Editor. (See System configuration on page 182)

Standard stacker / stapler
There are two standard stacker / stapler configurations: the stacker / stapler with and without a
booklet maker. The booklet maker folds and staples booklets. Both finisher configurations can
enable the optional punch unit to punch two, three or four holes in the printed output.
The dashboard of the control panel displays the status of the staple cartridges. When the color of
the staple icon is orange or red, the staple cartridge needs replacement. (See System monitoring

[32] Document printing via an automated workflow
The use of automated workflows means that the print production increases, because you do not
need to define individual job settings during the job preparation.
PRISMAsync has one default automated workflow. There are several ways to address an
automated workflow:
• You can enter the name of the automated workflow in the label setting of the printer driver.
• You can use an LPR command with the name of the automated workflow.
• You can use a hotfolder, linked to an automatic workflow.
You can define if the attributes of the automated workflow must overrule the job tickets of the
print files.
An automatic workflow can send jobs to the following PRISMAsync locations: a DocBox, the list
of waiting jobs or the list of scheduled jobs. (See Job management in the queues on page 99)
Create and define automated workflows in the Settings Editor. (See System configuration on
page 182)
Hotfolders
The optional hotfolder feature is useful for environments that print many files with the same print
settings. The format of the files you can print with hotfolders depends on the print language
licenses of your print system (PostScript/PDF, Direct PDF (Adobe PDF Print Engine APPE), PCL).
70
Chapter 4 - Plan the jobs
imagePRESS C800 Series
Automated workflows
You drop the printable files on a shortcut of the hotfolder. Do not use a hotfolder for files that
already have a job ticket, to prevent the settings of the two sources causing a conflict.
A hotfolder has a connection to an automated workflow, which defines the job settings. However,
you can also apply job settings by the use of a hotfolder default ticket. If this happens, you can
disable the automated workflow job settings. Create a hotfolder default ticket (default_ticket.jdf)
with your printer driver.
You need to do the following tasks, before you can use hotfolders:
• Use the Settings Editor to activate the hotfolder feature.
• Use the Settings Editor to create a hotfolder.
• Use the Settings Editor to link the hotfolder to the settings of an automated workflow or place
the default job ticket in the hotfolder.
• Create a shared network folder on your workstation that links to the hotfolder and create a
shortcut on your desktop.
Variable data printing
Printing variable data (VDP or variable document printing) is a print method that uses variable
text and graphics. A VDP job has records to distinguish the different sets. VDP is used for direct
marketing, advertising, and personalized letters. PRISMAprepare or VDP authoring tools allow to
build personalized documents.
Today, PDF/VT print files are used to print variable data documents. PDF/VT enables variable
document printing with the use of the latest PDF standards. Submit PDF/VT files to PRISMAsync
with an automated workflow or a hotfolder.
[33] A PDF/VT job in the list of scheduled jobs
The
icon indicates a PDF/VT file.
When the PDF/VT job arrives in the print queue, you can use the following functions:
• Print a proof of the first record.
• Interrupt the print process after a certain record, and resume the print process of the job later.
• Print a range of records.

All jobs are received in the list of scheduled jobs and only the first set of the job is printed. After
approval of the first set, you give the print command to print the other sets in one run.

Select an accounting mode
Select an accounting mode
The accounting feature on PRISMAsync stores and handles job and user information in account
log files. You can customize the definition of account log files to process the logging data into
your cost charts or invoices.
You must define account IDs to charge job costs to departments or customers and enable the
user identification in the Settings Editor. PRISMAsync can verify the entered account IDs, to make
sure that only valid users can use the print system. When a submitted job does not have a valid
account ID, PRISMAsync sends it to the list of waiting jobs. The print system will only start to
process the job when a correct account ID is entered.
When accounting is active, the printer driver and the control panel will ask for an account ID
before the print system handles the job. Define the accounting mode on the control panel to
determine how PRISMAsync interacts with the operator.
Accounting modes:
• [Per job]
This mode requires authentication per job. You can see the last used account ID which you can
overwrite.
• [Per job] ([Clear account ID])
This mode requires authentication per job. You cannot see the last used account ID.
• [Fixed]
This mode uses a fixed account ID, but you can change the account ID. Be aware that the fixed
mode implies that the print system overrules the account ID that is entered in the printer
driver.

Transaction printing
Transaction printing
Transaction printing mode
When there is a license for transaction printing (IPDS or PCL), you can operate the print system in
the transaction printing mode. An IPDS or PCL host sends a streaming job to a dedicated port in
the print system. The transaction printing mode fits print environments with large numbers of
business critical data, such as invoices, checks and salary slips.
Typically, in the transaction print mode, that first non-variable parts of a print job are stored on
the controller and are then merged with the variable parts of the print job.

[40] Job workflow for transaction printing mode
During daily work, you can switch between the transaction printing and document printing
modes without rebooting the print system.
When the transaction printing mode is active, the print system still accepts PDF and PostScript
jobs. However, PRISMAsync starts to process these jobs, when you switch off the transaction
printing mode.
PDF containers in the data streams
The transaction printing mode can be extended with an Adobe PDF Print Engine (Adobe PDF for
IPDS) license. This license allows you to process PDF containers in the data streams.
Differences between the two printing modes
The transaction printing mode is different from the document printing mode in several respects:
1. All data in one connection session are part of the same streaming job. This streaming job can
have job separators. In this instance, you can see the different job names on the control
panel.
2. The print resolution for IPDS is 240, 300, 600 dpi, or automatically detected.

Transaction printing
3. When the transaction printing jobs contain paper tray selection numbers, you can select a
mapping method. The paper tray number corresponds to a physical tray or to media from the
catalog:
• Tray-to-media mapping
You can assign the paper tray number included in the print job to a physical paper tray.
• Tray-to-tray mapping
You can assign the paper tray number included in the print job to media in the media
catalog.
4. Color management in the transaction mode works in a similar way to the document printing
mode. However, there are some different color conversion functions:
• You cannot overrule the input profiles attached to the data stream.
• You can choose to keep or ignore the output color profile in the data stream.
• You cannot calibrate the printer when the transaction printing mode is active.
Transaction printing setups
A transaction printing setup is a collection of preset print settings for a transaction job, such as
output location, data resolution, face orientation, offset stacking, font capture, and logical page
size.
Create transaction printing setups in the Settings Editor. (See System configuration on page 182)
Work in transaction printing mode
When you want to print in the transaction printing mode, first activate the transaction mode and
establish the connection with the IPDS or PCL host. When you print in the transaction printing
mode, the schedule informs you which types of media the streaming job uses. The schedule
cannot predict the time needed for a streaming job. (See Schedule on page 122)

Image adjustment
You can create a transaction printing preset with an image shift definition. This is useful for better
alignment of variable data, such as names or addresses, on the page. You define the image shift
on the control panel, but also in the Settings Editor.
Secure error recovery
When an job error occurs in transaction printing mode, the job recovery takes place from the
page that caused the error. When multiple pages of the same document are not allowed, for
example, for lotteries and bank accounts, you must adjust the error recovery settings. When you
select the secure error recovery in the Settings Editor, the print system does not perform an
output recovery and deletes all remaining pages. A stack eject follows when the printed output
goes to the high capacity stacker. As a result, you must submit the job again.

Use the DocBox
DocBox
The DocBox is short for document box. The optional DocBox storage location on PRISMAsync
helps to manage jobs before printing. For example, use the DocBox:
• As a storage folder for each print operator.
• As a secure folder protected with a PIN.
• As a storage folder for jobs that need reprinting on a regular basis.
• As a storage folder for jobs that need further job editing or page programming.
• As a storage folder for jobs that come from a hotfolder or an automated workflow.
[42] The DocBox folders
You can do the following tasks with a DocBox job:
• Lock the job settings.
• Move it to another DocBox.
• Combine it with another job in the DocBox.
• Print it with priority.

system is shut down. Proof prints or stopped jobs are not visible in the list of printed jobs.
In the following situations, you are not able to reprint jobs:
• The list of printed jobs is disabled in the Settings Editor.
• The print system is in the transaction printing mode.
• PRISMAsync already removed the print jobs from the list.
Removal of printed jobs
When you no longer need your printed jobs, you can remove them from the list of printed jobs.
PRISMAsync can also remove printed jobs automatically. Automatic removal of a printed job
occurs after a preset period has expired. For security reasons, configure the optional E-shredding
function in the Settings Editor. E-shredding overwrites the deleted job data and prevents data
recovery from a removed job.
When the automatic job removal is not active, it is important to prevent a full system disc. Delete

Proofing
Proof and test prints
Avoid wasting time and money and do a check print before you start a print job with many sets. A
check print can result in the decision to change job properties or to adjust image and color
settings for one, or all, jobs.
There are several methods to check the job definition:
• Check the first set of a job.
• Make a proof print of a job.
• Set intermediate check prints.
• Make a job ticket print.
Check first set
Especially useful for jobs with many sets, you can check the first print set, before you print all
other sets in one run. The print system prints a first set in the following situations:
• When you indicate the first set check in the printer driver and PRISMAprepare.
• When the workflow profile sets the first set check. (See Workflow profiles on page 73)
• When you indicate the first set check in the job property window on the control panel. The
number of sets window shows the check first set check box.

Check and prepare media before loading
Before you load media into the paper trays, it is important to check and prepare the media.
When there are load and storage instructions on the paper package, follow these instructions.
When you print on media that have absorbed moisture, steam may be released from the output
area of the machine. This is due to the evaporation of moisture in the paper caused by the high
temperature in the print module.
CAUTION
• When loading paper, take care not to cut your hands on the edges of the paper.
• Do not store media in places exposed to open flames. This can cause the paper to ignite
which could result in burns or a fire.
NOTE
• Use paper recommended by Canon for high-quality output.
• Some commercially available media types are not appropriate for your print system. Contact
your local authorized Canon dealer to order media. (See Consumables on page 185)

IMPORTANT
• Do not print on the back side of the envelopes (the side with the flap).
• Do not load the following types of envelopes. This can cause a paper jam, dirty printed output
or dirty machine parts:
• Curled, creased, or folded envelopes
• Very thick or thin envelopes
• Damp or wet envelopes
• Torn envelopes
• Irregularly shaped envelopes
• Envelopes with clasps or windows
• Envelopes that are already sealed
• Envelopes with holes or perforations
• Envelopes with specially coated surfaces
• Envelopes made of surface treated colored paper
• Envelopes that are self-adhesive and use ink, glue, or other substances that can melt, burn,
vaporize, or emit smells by the heat of the fixing unit (approximately 200°C). Melted glue
can cause sealed envelopes.
• When there is a temperature difference between the storage location and the location where
the envelopes are printed, take the envelopes to the print location on time.
CAUTION
• When you handle paper, be careful not to cut your hands on the edges of the paper.
• Do not store paper in places exposed to open flames. This can cause the paper to ignite
which could result in burns or a fire.

• Do not load transparencies while the print system is printing. This can cause a paper jam.
• Only use transparencies intended for your print system. Other transparencies can damage the
print system.
• Only hold the edges of the sheets and avoid touching the print surface.
• When transparencies stick together, fan the stack and do not load more than 100 sheets. Use
new transparencies when a paper jam occurs.
• Immediately take printed transparencies from the output tray to avoid folded transparencies.
This can cause a paper jam.

Calibration
Calibration
About calibration
Calibration is very important in keeping the print quality high for color reproduction. The
environment of your print system influences the print quality. A constant temperature and
humidity are essential for consistent color output.
PRISMAsync automatically keeps the print quality as high as possible. However, additional
calibration is essential to keep the color reproduction level stable for all the media types you use.
PRISMAsync offers a structured workflow and feedback mechanism to integrate calibration into
your daily work.
There are two methods of calibration: the printer calibration and the media family calibration.
Printer calibration for print operators
Printer calibration has two procedures: automatic gradation adjustment and the shading
correction. In the Calibration window of the control panel, you can see which calibration
procedures you must perform. The control panel reminds you when to start a printer calibration
with an indicator. Load the calibration media as configured in the Setting Editor (see below).
[92] Calibration indicator
Configuration of the daily printer calibration
You are strongly advised to only configure the automatic gradation adjustment for the daily
printer calibration. This automatic gradation adjustment includes precise adjustments of the
gradation, density and color quality. A test print is used to scan and correct the irregularities
automatically. There are two modes for the automatic gradation adjustment:
• Standard
Advised for a standard print quality.
• Professional
Advised for professional print quality.
In the Settings Editor you can find the latest color calibration report.
In exceptional situations, when a very high print quality is required, you can add the shading
correction to the calibration procedure. For the shading correction you need the Eye-One
spectrophotometer. (Calibrate for maximum print quality on page 165)
Media family calibration
PRISMAsync provides, as default, the coated and uncoated media families. A media family is a
set of media with the same output profile (one per halftone) and calibration values.
Before you start a media family calibration, always perform the printer calibration.
A media family calibration is necessary for the following situations:
• After the installation of the print system, for the default media families coated and uncoated.
• When a new media family is created.
• When a service replaces system parts.
160
Chapter 6 - Keep the image quality high
imagePRESS C800 Series
About calibration
• When you want to increase the print quality for frequently used media families.
For the media family calibration you need the Eye-One spectrophotometer.
Media for calibration
The printer and media family calibration need media.
Media for the printer calibration
You can define and see the media for the printer calibration in the Settings Editor.
NOTE
To find the media for printer calibration in the Settings Editor: [Preferences] -> [Print job
defaults] -> [Calibration media]. (See System configuration on page 182)
Normal media for standard and professional printer calibration:
• Océ Top Colour FSC (100 g/m² / 27 lb bond)
• Canon CS-814 (81.4 g/m² / 22 lb bond)
• Mondi Neusiedler (100 g/m² / 27 lb bond)
• International Paper Hammermill Color Copy Digital (105 g/m² / 28 lb bond)
Heavy media for professional printer calibration:
• Océ Top Colour FSC (250 g/m² / 92 lb cover)
• Mondi (250 g/m² / 92 lb cover)
• Mohawk Navajo Cover 98 bright (243 g/m² / 90 lb cover)
Extra heavy media for professional printer calibration:
• Océ Top Colour FSC (300 g/m² / 110 lb cover)
• Mondi (300 g/m² / 110 lb cover)
• International Paper Hammermill Color Copy Digital (271 g/m² / 100 lb cover)
Media for the media family calibration
Make sure you use the same calibration media to represent the media family each time you
perform a media family calibration.
Daily calibration scenarios
You cannot measure the print quality of the output on an absolute scale, because print quality
depends on the expectations you had beforehand. You need to remain aware of the correlation
between calibration procedures and print quality.
IMPORTANT
You are strongly advised to perform a daily printer calibration.
There are three calibration scenarios, each creating better print quality. Choose the scenario that
best fits your print quality demands.
• Configure the standard printer calibration mode in the Settings Editor and perform a printer
calibration daily.
• Configure the professional printer calibration mode in the Settings Editor and perform a printer
calibration daily.
• Configure the professional printer calibration mode in the Settings Editor. Perform a printer
calibration daily, followed by a media family calibration for each media family.

About print quality for media
The print quality of the printed output depends on the media used. When you add media to the
media catalog, you can define attributes that influence the print behavior of the print system for
these media types.
Make sure that you select the correct media family and surface type when you add new media to
the media catalog in the Settings Editor. (see Settings Editor media attributes on page 294)
If you notice that the media or image quality of the printed output is not as high as it should be,
perform a correction procedure to adjust the media or image quality:
• Curled media correction
• Media registration, for example, for new media
• Skewed and rotated image correction
The correction procedures change the media attributes in the media catalog, so that the
adjustments are applied to all jobs that use the same media.

Correct curled output media
Media can arrive curled in the output tray. This is caused by temperature differences during the

trays. The results of the correction are immediately effective for jobs that use these media.
For media that need a curl correction on the length and width, create two different entrances in
the media catalog. The correction procedure changes the media attributes in the media catalog,
so that the adjustments are applied to all jobs that use the same media. You can find the
correction values in the system adjustment settings of the Settings Editor (Preferences tab).

System configuration and maintenance
System configuration and maintenance
Your organization and print environment can ask for a system configuration that meets
production and workflow requirements. In addition, authorization, security and sustainability
guidelines are important when you establish a print system. PRISMAsync and the Settings Editor
options and features combine to adjust the print environment according to your requirements: a
convenient workflow, an optimal print productivity and a high print quality.
The installation of the print system includes most configuration tasks, such as definitions of
preferences, job workflows and print languages. The media and color quality requirements are
translated into the correct system settings.
Changing the settings at a later time depends upon the type of print, copy or scan job.
Configuration tasks for operators
The control panel allows the print operator to adjust the print quality and workflow with respect
to the daily print operation. The print operator can, for example, add temporary media to the
media catalog, change the workflow profile or start a daily printer calibration. Operators can
access the Settings Editor to view the system configuration.

Cleaning tasks and procedures
To keep your print system in optimal condition and prevent poor image quality, clean the
following machine parts regularly:
• Glass plate
• Scanning area of the automatic document feeder
• Control panel
• Corona assembly wires (via the control panel)
• Automatic document feeder rollers (via the control panel)
• Main unit roller (via the control panel)
• Fixing roller (via the control panel)
• Drums (via the control panel)
You are advised to clean the control panel weekly and the other parts monthly.
The control panel enables access to the wires, rollers and drums. To begin the procedures to
clean machine parts, you need a maintenance for operators password. (See System configuration
on page 182)
WARNING
• When you clean the machine, first turn OFF the main power switch, and disconnect the
power cord. Failure to observe these steps can result in a fire or electrical shock.

• Billing counters
Billing counters display the total number of images the print system has produced after
installation.
• Day counters
Day counters display the total number of images the print system has produced since the last
reset to null. Reset the day counters at the beginning of the day or before you start a series of
jobs, for example, for a specific customer.
There are counters for normal media (length equal or less than 364 mm / 14.3") and large media
(length more than 364 mm / 14.3").
A service technician can enable toner cartridge counters.

More PRISMAsync color information
More PRISMAsync color information
The color management of PRISMAsync controls the reproduction of colors and handles the
conversion of input colors (RGB, CMYK, spot colors) to printed colors on paper. PRISMAsync has
two instruments for easy color management across the entire workflow, color presets and media
families, so that the operator does not need to perform color management tasks on a job-by-job
basis.
Color experts can use more color management functions with the advanced color management
license.
See Color reproduction for your output on page 26 for a description of color presets, media
families and the features of the advanced color management license.
You can find more PRISMAsync color information below.
Input and output profiles
Input and output profiles define the transition from input colors, for example, the RGB color
values of a photo, towards output colors or, for example, the CMYK color values of your printer.
The color management of PRISMAsync transforms the color input space to the color output space
via the standards of the ICC, the International Color Consortium.
PRISMAsync comes with high quality color output profiles for both coated and uncoated media.
PRISMAsync links output profiles to media via media families. Each media family has three
different output profiles for the halftone screens Normal, Fine and Error-diffusion. (See Settings
Editor media attributes on page 294)
Rendering intents
A color gamut is a set of colors a system can produce. Input colors do not always fit in the color
gamut of an output device. For colors that exceed the gamut of an output device, color space
rendering intents are used for gamut mapping. The rendering intent tells the color management
system how to handle colors that do not fit into the destination color gamut. The following
rendering intents are available on PRISMAsync:
• Relative colorimetric
Frequently used and suitable for proofing applications on reference paper. White point
compensation is applied. The white point of the output color space is the color of the used
media.
• Absolute colorimetric
Mainly suitable for proofing applications on bright white paper. No black and white point
compensation is applied, so the precise input paper color is simulated on the used media.
• Perceptual
Mainly suitable for photographic input. The colors are mapped in a continuous way and color
nuances are recognized. White and black point compensation is applied.
• Saturation
Mainly suitable to obtain highly saturated colors and business graphics. Out-of-gamut colors
are mapped to more saturated colors. White and black point compensation is applied.
Spot Colors
Spot colors standardize and predict colors, so that output colors always match a specific color
value. Spot colors allow the printing of unique brand colors for logos or business graphics. Spot
colors are converted to the proper CMYK output color value via spot color tables or spot color
libraries.
266
Chapter 9 - References
imagePRESS C800 Series
More PRISMAsync color information
You find the spot color definitions in the Settings Editor. To select the most appropriate color, a
patch chart print is available. Use this print as a spot color representation on the media you use.
New or changed spot colors are stored in a custom spot color library. You can import or export
spot color libraries.
Color mapping
Use color mapping to convert RGB and CMYK color input values to specific output colors, for
example, your corporate color. Color mappings are useful to map colors in the input file to a fixed
spot color of a spot color library. With color mappings you ensure that specific input colors
always result in the same output color. Assign color mappings to one or more color presets to
include them in the job preparation workflow.
Leave out separations
You can use color mapping to indicate layers in the document that you want to leave out whilst
printing. You can exclude layers for printing when you map the colors of these layers to a spot
color with the value “None”. You can use leave out separations for the following document
areas:
• White separations
• Cutting marks
• Spot layers, that indicate a foil to be applied after the print process
• Spot layers, that indicate a gold print
