True Colors
Ever had a time when a blue wasn't blue, or a red wasn't red, but instead brown, green or even purple? With the 4079 plus, color accuracy is assured thanks to device independent color provided by its PostScript Level 2 emulation. Lexmark's advanced ColorGrade halftoning technology for inkjet printing provides 256 shades of intensity for each primary color, yielding 16.7 million addressable colors at an effective screen frequency of 127. This makes even the finest details and the most subtle color nuances come alive on this 360 x 360 dots-per-inch printer. Even photographs -- especially photographs -- print with razor-sharp detail. Lexmark has also engineered the 4079 with Image Diffusion, a technology which allows each color plane to print independently of the others, resulting in less overlap of color on any given pixel. This minimizes those annoying bands, stairsteps and other distracting patterns. Now you can capture the fine light details in one area of your image as well as the intricate mid-tone fades in another.
