Paper Abstract

The ISO WD 19751 macro-uniformity team works towards the development of a standard for evaluation of perceptual image quality of color printers. The team specifically addresses the types of defects that fall in the category of macrouniformity, such as streaks, bands and mottle. The first phase of the standard will establish a visual quality ruler for macro-uniformity, using images with simulated macro-uniformity defects. A set of distinct, parameterized defects has been defined, as well as a method of combining the defects into a single image. The quality ruler will be a set of prints with increasing magnitude of the defect pattern. The paper will discuss the creation and printing of the simulated images, as well as initial tests of subjective evaluations using the ruler.
