Introducing the new Onyx 18

Let the new Onyx 18 take your printing to the next level with a totally new colour experience and added power at your fingertips. Raising the bar with new technologies for colour accuracy and colour consistency verification, the Onyx 18 offers superior printing at the touch of a button.

The new Onyx 18 colour experience

The brilliant new core Onyx Color™ enhancements will guarantee you the most detailed and vibrant prints, complete with optimized out-of-the-box pre-sets to get your workflow up and running fast.

You’ll see:

    • Improved black ink combination for crisp shadow details and visible texture
    • Increased saturation for eye-popping reds and oranges
    • The first solution compatible with iccMAX, the new standard recommended by the ICC for all wide-format print applications and, in particular, for soft-signage and textiles.

The evolution of colour management

The Onyx 18 represents a step change in colour management tools and software. This colour engine will have a real impact on your colour output and the results are outstanding. The new hue stabilisation and colour engine enhancements now provide high saturation levels and large output gamut size with your existing calibration and ink settings, while still maintaining sharp image details in shaded areas.
