Paper Abstract

Color management in the graphic arts industry requires control of the printing conditions and knowledge of the intended output color characteristics. As the industry continues its accelerated move toward complete digital work flow, the need for reference printing characterization data is a requirement to enable color management of digital data. The Committee for Graphic Arts Technologies Standards, CGATS, has been supporting the industry by developing a protocol including measurement, data analysis, and data reporting format that results in characterization data for specific reference printing processes. This paper provides a summary of the protocol that has evolved from the continued standards development within the CGATS SC4 Process Control Subcommittee.
