This system automates the task of producing a technically correct print,
making printing faster, easier and safer.
In these prints you could refind all fine
details of the negative as it automatically determine and set the optimal contrast grade and exposure time and this without any preceding test prints or perfect print the „hard way“.
To achieve perfect prints,it is equipped with a control unit, with a microprocessor,
a probe and a filter head with step motor. By passing the probe through the image,
the probe scans the image, looks for the brightest and the darkest part and calculates the best contrast grade and exposure time for this particular negative. The controller then splits the exposure time in two parts, deciding
how long the negative will be printed through the yellow and the succeeding magenta filter.
In this way a technically perfect print is realised where the shadows are 90%
black and the highlights white, with still enough detail to show all information
contained in the negative.In function of: the general density the density differences
the paper type used the film type to print the unit
manages the whole printing process and this without any preceding test prints! Due to the sensitometric knowledge and experience integraded in the program, the only job you have to do is: load the
the print, look for the brightest and the darkest parts in the negative, position the paper in the enlarging easel and print.
It is clear that this system saves on time and paper and contributes to creativity by
letting the machine do the toilsome technical work.
