Till recently the image reproducing quality was estimated by the raster and linear elements reproducing of control scales. Today at the printing market the technology of the printed forms making by the digital record of an image on the output material, known as a computer-to-plate, has been widespreading, which differs from the traditional one by the absence of photoforms stage obtaining.
