Closed loop calibration is a method of color calibrating a printer in conjunction with the scanner it is going to be used with, to ensure that scanned and printed colors match the colors on the original scanned document.

First, a standard color chart is printed on the printer. The printed color chart is then scanned on the scanner along with a supplied standard color chart.

The scans of the printed color chart and the standard color chart are then compared to known colors and this information is used to build ICC / ICM profiles of the printer and scanner color characteristics.

These profiles are then used to ensure accurate color across the scanner – printer system.

SmartWorks Pro Copier software includes a user-friendly Calibration Wizard for closed loop calibration.
