Besides the Generic AM and Generic FM modes, PlateScope supports LUT’s. It is
recommended that you use the LUT whenever possible for highly accurate measurements.
Every plate has unique behavior characteristics, even when similar screening technology is
applied to different plates. Due to the extremely accurate measurement capabilities of
PlateScope, it is necessary to provide detail about the plate so that the device can respond
appropriately to things such as illumination settings for ideal contrast, distinguishing plate noise
(dust, plate grain, etc.) from actual image area, optimal resolution for measurement accuracy,
and gain curve adjustments correlated to emulsion characteristics.
What If My Plate Type Is Not Listed?
If your plate type is not listed in the LUT table, please use the Generic Mode for your Plate
What If A Screening Method Is Not Listed?
If your plate type is listed in the LUT table, but not the same screening, please proceed as
If another screen ruling or dot size of the same screening type (AM, FM , XM) is available,
please select the closest. If this is NOT the case, please use the Generic Mode.
The LUT only impacts the absolute accuracy, but not the repeatability. The repeatability is the
same for the Generic Modes and the LUTs.
