Paper Abstract

This paper describes the issues associated with digital files and high-end color reproduction. It highlights some industry experiences related to the use of digital files and considers what the Adobe AcrobatTM PDF format may contribute to meeting the needs of high-end color reproduction. The purpose of the project was to determine whether the PDF 1.2 format is capable of achieving the high-end color requirements of today's pre-press industry. The methods used to test the PDF 1.2 format are described, and the results discussed. For all the features tested it was found that the results were equivalent to using PostScript, and the suitability of the format for high-end color reproduction was confirmed.
