The VPI is a specially designed D50 viewing station for the controlled color inspection of large format digital images. The ISO 3664 light quality of the VPI is a combination of the Graphiclite 100 Color Viewing Lamp output, aluminized high efficiency reflectors, and spectrally neutral, non-yellowing diffusers. Images up to 60 inches in width are displayed semi-vertically within the viewing station. The observer standing at a comfortable distance can take in the entire image for visual comparison with a color monitor image, color transparency, or reference print. Options include Variable Intensity for soft proof comparisons, Height-Adjustable Artwork Holder to support three dimensional artwork, and Side Walls for stricter control of ambient light.
The VPI comes in three standard sizes – Models VPI-40 (40” x 45.25” viewing area), VPI-52 (52” x 45.25” viewing area), & VPI-64 (64” x 45.25” viewing area). The addition of an optional lower light source provides better evenness of light on the printed piece (Models VPI-40x, VPI-52x, or VPI-64x).
Models VPI-40x/D and VPI-52x/D offer a digital dimming option for
soft proof comparisons. For critical soft proofing, the VPI/SP series accommodates a computer and monitor, with variable intensity for optimal match to monitor.
