  • Patent number: 10864759
    Abstract: A method of printing is disclosed. The printing may involve printing on a printable medium using a print head having a plurality of nozzles, the printable medium having a leading edge and a defined zone adjacent to the leading edge. The print head may be to deposit print agent onto the printable medium via the plurality of nozzles during successive printing passes. The method may comprise: during a first printing pass, depositing print agent from a subset of the plurality of nozzles onto the printable medium outside the defined zone. The method may further comprise: advancing the printable medium by a defined distance. The method may further comprise: during a second printing pass, depositing print agent from a subset of the plurality of nozzles onto the printable medium within the defined zone.

  • Patent number: 10350880
    Abstract: A method and system of controlling at least one printbar in a printing system are described. The printing system has one or more of printbars distributed along a media transport. A first image including a reference pattern is generated on a print medium with a first printbar. A pattern is then detected on the print medium. The reference pattern and the detected pattern are used to determine a position of the first image relative to a second printbar. This position is used to configure nozzle data for a second image to be generated on the print medium by the second printbar.

  • Patent number: 10343417
    Abstract: A method of generating a diagnostic plot for a printing system includes printing a first half of a diagnostic pattern representative of a first state of the printing system, and printing a second half of the diagnostic pattern representative of a second state of the printing system. Variation of the diagnostic pattern from an adjacent diagnostic pattern indicates the printing system is out of specification.

  • Patent number: 10291822
    Abstract: Certain methods of generating a color mapping are described. In one method, an output of a color halftone processing pipeline is processed so as to determine a set of Neugebauer Primary area coverage (NPac) values that are representative of the output of the color halftone processing pipeline. These NPac values are then used, together with knowledge of an original input image, to generating the color mapping.

  • Patent number: 10237452
    Abstract: Methods for configuring and calibrating a printing system are described. Configuring a printing system involves obtaining data for determining a reference print element in the printing system. The reference print element is then used to determine calibration data for a given print element. The calibration data is applied for the given print element to generate a print output.

  • Patent number: 10160198
    Abstract: A printer includes a page wide array of printing elements extending in a first orientation and co-located with a media path extending in a second orientation generally perpendicular to the first orientation. The printer is selectively operable according to a calibration involving current calibration values for a first subset of the page wide array of printing elements and a substitute calibration value for at least one non-first subset printing element of the page wide array immediately adjacent to at least one of the first subset printing elements.

  • Patent number: 10003719
    Abstract: A method of color halftone processing is disclosed. A plurality of color mappings each provide a mapping from a color value in a color space to a set of Neugebauer Primary area coverage (NPac) values in an NPac space. An imaging metric is obtained for each NPac value in the set. An NPac value in the set is selected based on the imaging metric. The selected NPac value is used as an output NPac value in a combined color mapping for the color value.

  • Patent number: 9936102
    Abstract: A method for color mapping is disclosed. A color mapping is generated based on an imaging model and a color model for an imaging device. The imaging model allows a set of perturbations to be modelled. A set of metamers is determined for one or more colors. For each metamer, at least the imaging model is used to estimate a color output with at least one modelled perturbation. The color outputs are used to select a metamer from the set to be used for the color mapping.

  • Patent number: 9908323
    Abstract: A method and system of controlling at least one printbar in a printing system are described. The printing system has one or more of printbars (160, 190) distributed along a media transport. A first image including a reference pattern (240A, 240B) is generated on a print medium (150) with a first printbar (160). A detector (180) then detects a pattern on the print medium. The reference pattern and the detected pattern are used to determine a position of the first image relative to a second printbar (190). This position is used to configure nozzle data for a second image to be generated on the print medium by the second printbar.
