High Quality Hinting

HQH (High Quality Hinting) 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 automates this process by examining engraving data for fine lines and text and automatically optimizing these elements according to preset criteria. Fine text thus remains legible and small graphics do not vanish in printing.


HQH works in the background without any operator intervention by combining hot folder technology with job ticket control.
