The Color Hardcopy Quality Factors (CHQF) study series began in 1990 and has grown to include a 'database' of hundreds of print samples spanning nearly a hundred different printing devices across a broad range of marking technologies. The key element of this series is the ability it offers users to analyze actual print samples using their own criteria, rather than relying on technical specifications and general benchmarking. The understanding that print quality analysis contains an inherent subjectivity is crucial to the design of the PostScript files used for CHQF testing. The samples which were generated provide a baseline to compare printing methods. This baseline is established through uniform, controlled input, custom test programs, the use of the device-independent PostScript language,and the wide range of devices included in testing. While PostScript was used for most testing for maximum device-independence, printing solutions which could not process PostScript were tested using Adobe Acrobat as a PostScript interpreter.
