Calibration

The process of adjusting a device or process to match certain criteria. This is usually done by measuring the devices’ deviation from standard values and then, during operation of the device, applying values to compensate the deviation.

In prepress, in particular, calibration is the fine-tuning of scanners, monitors, printers, imagesetters or computer-to-plate systems in order to increase the accuracy of their output.
