The base level of AFP color management support in InfoPrint 4100 printers with the Ricoh POWER architecture and microcode release 15.4 or later lets you apply color management to grayscale text, graphics (GOCA), bi-level images (IOCA FS10), and bar codes. To use color management functions with other types of objects, the AFP Color Emulation feature is required.
The AFP Color Emulation feature lets you print color objects in grayscale. When the feature is installed, AFP Color Management lets you natively print GIF, IOCA FS11, IOCA FS45, JPEG, and TIFF images in high-quality grayscale.
InfoPrint 4100 printers support these types of CMRs:
- Color conversion
- Link color conversion
- Tone transfer curve
For even better images on InfoPrint 4100 Models MS1, MD1, and MD2, you can also install the Image Enhancement feature. Benefits of this feature include:
- Enhanced fusing technology to minimize toner distortion
- Optimized developer unit for high coverage and high-density applications
- Improved halftones tailored to new hardware and toner technology
