HP ColorSmart II
HP ColorSmart II is a set of technologies that enables optimal color
output automatically for diverse types of documents.
HP ColorSmart II utilizes object tagging and Standard RGB (sRGB)
color technologies. Object tagging allows optimal color and halftone
settings to be used for different objects on a page (text, graphics and
photos). The printer analyzes the page (what objects it contains) and
intelligently uses halftone and color settings that provide the best print
quality for each object. Object tagging, combined with optimized
default settings, produces great color out of the box.
In the Windows environment, you will find the HP ColorSmart II
Automatic and Manual settings on the Color tab in the printer driver.
