Paper Abstract

The purpose of this research is to study the practical differences of characterizing color output devices using tristimulus values from an X- Rite 938 spectrodensitometer and an X-Rite DTP51 auto-scanning colorimeter. Because colorimeters offer a lower price point, and in the case of the DTP51, automated measurements, they may be preferable for use in a localized color management solutions. This paper examines the performance of the DTP51 colorimeter compared to a 16-point hand-held spectrophotometer. The enabling technology used was Color Blind color management software (Color Solutions, Encinitas, CA) for the Macintosh platform. It was used to create the output device profiles, and apply them to the various media tested.
