GERMANY • The HQH Pro automatic text enhancement system for gravure printing recently impressed judges for the ERA’s Innovation Prize, who recommended the product.
The HQH Pro (High Quality Hinting) is said to replace time-consuming, manual work with an automatic process. It improves the legibility/appearance of fine text and graphics in print. Repro data is generally prepared using manual correction in line with specific engraving requirements. HQH Pro automates this process by examining engraving data for fine lines and text and then automatically optimizing these elements according to preset criteria. Fine text thus remains legible and small graphics do not vanish in printing.
