German term or phrase: Tonwertwiedergabe
This is referring to how high-quality paper works well with high-definition printers:

Ganz gleich, ob Feinstraster oder moderne FM-Raster: In Sachen Tonwertwiedergabe bei der Reproduktionstechnik sind den optimierten (Papier-)Oberflächen selbst bei der Darstellung feinster Details keine Grenzen gesetzt.
