Paper Abstract

A colour management strategy based on a reference printer and reference medium is described. Additional printers and media are then defined in terms of this reference printer. This makes it possible to estimate new transforms for a given a printer and media with no new measurements, even when there is no characterization data available for this combination of printer and media. A simple method of estimating the new transform was implemented and evaluated, and it was found to give good results when the target printing condition was similar in gamut and colorant primaries to the reference printer. This approach can be extended by applying more complex empirical models.
