FORT WORTH, Texas, March 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --



Ricoh's Kirk Szymanski, Director, Production Print Global Marketing, will present at The Technical Association of the Graphic Arts' (TAGA) Annual Technical Conference.


Kirk Szymanski is a resident color and imaging engineer at Ricoh, supporting customer usage of color digital printing products and solutions. He works with customers on methodologies to optimize color and image quality of Ricoh production print products. Before joining Ricoh, Szymanski worked at several companies as a product development engineer and manager, including 12 years at Xerox creating mid-range and production digital printing products.




Szymanski will discuss how color tuning and image quality optimization begins at the basic machine setup level. A printer or copier must first operate properly, in a consistent and repeatable manner, before consistent and accurate color reproduction can be achieved and maintained. He will detail a three-step process, including print engine setup, densitometric tuning for conciseness and colorimetric tuning for accuracy. Each must be performed and maintained to achieve optimized color and image quality.
