Paper Abstract

In a drop-on-demand thermal ink-jet printer, the dot size of an ink droplet expelled from printer depends on the absorption of the paper. This causes severe differences between output images on the different paper materials. In this paper, the color matching algorithm for different papers is proposed. To achieve corresponding color reproduction, dot gain compensation based on saturation was applied to predict color reproduction on printer. If the dot gain of pigment is increased, the white portion of paper decreases while the saturation value increases monotonically. As the result of dot gain compensation, intensity change may be appeared. Therefore, an intensity compensation without any hue variation is followed to match the colors of different substrates.
