Deciding which LUT to use with a lightness based calibration system
With a lightness based calibration, you no longer need to use a Look Up Table (LUT) with TIFF images. The TIFF downloader automatically inverts the image before printing if the LUT is not present.

Newer versions of the KODAK PROFESSIONAL Image Print Server were shipped with a decreasing linear LUT in case the customer wanted to download a LUT. If no LUT is installed, the image will print correctly.

The printer ICON button disappeared
If your APPLE MACINTOSH or MICROSOFT WINDOWS computer crashes unexpectedly, the files can become corrupted and the printer ICON or printer button can be deleted. This also happens if you press [Ctrl] [Alt] [Delete] on a WINDOWS computer, or [Ctrl] [Apple] [Power Key] on a MACINTOSH computer. The printer folder still exists but the system cannot access it. You must "Create a New Device".

How to set up an image color balance
The Image Print Server uses a decreasing linear LUT. It does not apply a gamma table. However, it does have the capability to apply tables to images it processes, but if none are indicated it assumes a decreasing linear LUT.

How to determine the device calibration software version
When running the KODAK PROFESSIONAL Device Calibration Software, you're actually running two software applications. Both applications are located in the Device Application folder.

  1. The Core Application is the user interface that makes all of the calibration applications look and feel the same.

  2. The Calibration Application handles the actual calibration. The calibration applications for each device are stored in the "bin" folder.

To determine the software version you are running, navigate to the Device Application folder and open the "bin" folder.
- For MACINTOSH computers, perform "Get Info" [Apple] [i].
- For WINDOWS NT systems, right click on the application and go to "Properties".
