Finest Quality Negatives in the World
Because PiezoDN is built upon the proven ink and curve technology of Piezography, the negatives it produces are capable of making thousands upon thousands of tonal transitions. This system truly matches the tonal breadth of noble-metal arts such as Platinum and Palladium printing.
Because PiezoDN is an inkjet printed negative, you can calibrate it perfectly for any given analogue process and print different negatives on the fly, something not done with more expensive LVT film burners.PiezoDN is Darkroom v2
We started building PiezoDN only for Palladium and Platinum printing but quickly realized it was capable of so much more. We’ve built base-line curves for Gum, Cyanotype, Salt, Ziatype, and Silver and we aren’t stopping there. Over the next few years we hope to build the baseline curves needed for Malde-Ware printout Platinum, gravure, and the list keeps growing!.7 Point Text? Yep.
A long time ago we proved the resolution fidelity of Piezography by printing 1pt text (something not possible using normal epson ink even with today’s newest pro printers). We’ve gone a step further with PiezoDN and printed all of Alice in Wonderland at 3.5×4.5 inches in READABLE .7pt text. Of course you need a loupe to see it. The negatives that PiezoDN produces are finer than the optical resolution of Platinum/Palladium or other hand-coated print-methods even when using single-point lights and vacuum easels. PiezoDN makes true contact-worthy negatives that rival or possibly surpass traditional photo negatives when using new-generation digital cameras such as the A7rII or medium-format digital backs.
When printed on silver paper, this system far-surpasses the leading digital silver printing services in both resolution, tonal fidelity, and the ability to print in your own darkroom on your paper of choice.Calibrate In House
PiezoDN comes packed with tools for calibrating (linearizing) your own digital negatives that produce prints that match your display. No other system can accomplish this. Our unique concept is to calibrate directly between your screen display and the alt process print. You benefit by being able to image the way you want your print to appear. No Photoshop curves are necessary with PiezoDN. You simply measure a calibration target that you have contact printed, feed measurement data into PiezoDN software. PiezoDN then produces a curve for QTR that produces a negative that is not only linear and can separate 256 gray levels, but also matches the contrast of your display. Use the optional Soft Proof and editing images for alt process becomes second nature.
Literally, you can get the same tonal separation in your DARKROOM that you can with Piezography-on-paper. And you do not have to do a complicated digital negative making process as you do with color inks.
