I do not post here very often so please excuse me if I am bending any forum rules in this post, I will try not to and also excuse any english mistakes, I am french speaking.
I am experiencing an issue where I cannot get my Eizo CG275 to soft proof my prints unless I manually adjust Hue and saturation.
Here is my setup :
An Eizo CG275W calibrated to 6500K, 120cd, 2.2gamma, gray balance using colornavigator.
An IPF8400 printer and Hahnemhle papers. Profiles are created through a X-rite i1Pro2 using the following details : 3000patches / M0 measurements / Standard D50 illuminant / A to b and b to a large tables 16bits / Profile v2 / profile white point default.
A just Normlicht Color communicator 2 D50 with the illuminance being adjusted through color communicator to match monitor brightness.
Printing does not happen through RIP but through the canon driver.
I would suspect only some small white point adjustments to be required with such a setup to obtain satisfying soft proofing.
But I have to manually adjust Cyan hue to -32 and red saturation to 13 on the eizo to match my prints being viewed in the light booth. Adjusting white point does not allow me to correct for both the cyan and red deviations at the same time.
Now my problem is : I just don’t know how to tell my clients to soft proof at home with their calibrated monitor.
I was thinking about manually adjusting inks lay down on the ipf through the driver preferences to match as close as possible a 6500k calibrated monitor but I am afraid of gamut reduction and furthermore I would need to re-profile all my papers again.
Any thoughts, good advice or possible solution by anyone ?
Thanks in advance.
