Why does PlateScope use a Database of Plate Types?

Q: Why does PlateScope use LUT’s (a look-up database of plates) and require me to select the plate type I am using?

A: 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.
