i recently found out that, since 2006, most printer and cartridge manufacturers calculate inkcartridge yield based on the ISO 24711 / ISO 24712 norm.
This makes the market (a bit) more transparent for end users to do an comparison and or a cost per page calculation.
Below an example, of Brother declaring that they use this norm and it depicts an thumbnail image of the "iso images" used to calculate page yield.
You can see the thumbnails on page 4.
my questions are these :
Can i download these "ISO 24711 / 24712 test" documents/photographs somewhere so that i can use them ?
Does anyone now the individual percentages of each C M Y K color used of these 5 pages ?
Obviously, this info has to be somewhere, how else has it been been calculated ?
These could help me a lot. I'm planning doing an analysis/study myself, and create an "exact" page calculation off the documents i print (i know their percentages).
