Sublima is Agfa Graphics' most advanced screening option. Its cross-modulated (XM) screening technology is designed to dramatically improve print quality on press. –99% dot at higher frequencies, so it captures the finest details and the most vibrant colors.
How Sublima XM (Cross-modulated) screening Technology Works
Sublima uses a patented technology known as XM to achieve line-screen rulings of up to the double from what we are used today.
It combines the benefits of AM (Amplitude Modulated) screening, which are smooth gradations and highly controllable midtones, with the benefits of FM (Frequency Modulated) screening: fine detail rendering in shadows and highlights and continuous-tone-like reproduction. It aligns FM dots along AM paths and replaces AM dots at the precise point where the AM dot can no longer be held on a specific press.
The result is a smooth transition from one mode to the other with no visible crossover. Sublima also takes press characteristics into account so that it will never produce a dot the press cannot hold. As a result, every detail gets printed. Process tints, fine lines, even delicate typefaces print like solids using four-color process. Flesh tones are perfectly smooth and color accurate.
Because Sublima can hold the tiniest microdot on press, enlarging or reducing images have no effect on quality or the ability to sustain details.
|Unmatched Print Quality|
|Sublima raises print quality significantly.
Sublima lets your press easily hold a 1 - 99% dot at higher frequencies, so it captures the finest details, and produces vibrant colors.
|Regardless of size Sublima allows you to enlarge or reduce images with no effect on quality or the ability to sustain details.
|More Media Options|
|Sublima widens the variety of papers that you can use at high line rulings.
It allows you to print at the same quality level on high-gloss coated stocks, translucent vellums, and newsprint.
|Easy, low-cost color conversion|
|Sublima allows you to create tints, solids, and type that simulate spot colors using only CMYK.
This lets you produce a wider range of colors, without having to purchase customized colors and constantly switch inks.
|Removal of imperfections|
|Sublima makes you use higher line-frequencies hence eliminating the visual effect of the typical dot structure in printed matter.
Sublima prints look photo-realistic and will convince every printer and print buyer.
Sublima also eliminates subject moiré by using high line screen frequencies.
