Significance and Use
The copy image quality is affected by many factors; including the copier, supplies, and environmental conditions. The density and background image quality is particularly significant relative to aesthetic appearance, the visual impression of blackness, and the ability to distinguish information from background.
The test target may also be used to evaluate the copier or supplies.
1.1 This test method covers the description and method of use for a density and background test target for office copier image evaluation.
