Paper Abstract

Low-cost, color input and output are being increasingly adopted for desktop color applications. Many of these input devices (scanners) share common design attributes and objectives. Output devices (printers) are more diverse in their print engine technology and design intents. As would be expected, the image quality produced by the devices varies considerably from manufacturer to manufacturer. Fortunately, principles of image science and color science can be applied to quantify the image quality performance of these devices and summarize these characterizations with several simple figures of merit.
