About the tool
The Xerox® iGen® 5 Press Gamut Extension Tool has been designed to help evaluate the predicted accuracy of Pantone Plus color matching using one of the iGen 5's 5th color options vs CMYK. Simply enter the Pantone Plus color you wish to match and the tool will provide a comparison between the available dry ink options. The highest accuracy option will be highlighted for easy reference. Keep in mind that level of accuracy acceptability can vary by job and client. This tool provides a guideline for these discussions so you can make the best choices for each job you run.
Delta E 2000 was used as a measurement system to determine the relative accuracy breakdowns in this tool. As with any gamut measurement, variations could be seen depending on paper, press settings and level of maintenance. The achievable accuracy may require the customer to edit the spot color formula from what the DFE color management estimates.
