1. A system for identifying nozzle misalignments in a printhead, the system comprising:
the printhead; and
a print medium having a calibration pattern printed thereon using the printhead, the calibration pattern comprising one or more rows of spaced apart fiducials, each fiducial comprising a plurality of concentric annuli representing a Barker code,
wherein the Barker code comprises a code sequence having a sequence of N code values, each value being represented by a presence or absence of an annulus at a predetermined distance from a centre of the fiducial, and where N is an integer from 3 to 20.
