Paper Abstract

Printer color calibration is a crucial step to ensure consistent color reproduction. In this paper, we present a color calibration system that can not only ensure the color consistency for a same printer at different times, but also ensure the color consistency for different printers of the same model. We will analyze the most significant sources of color variations in an ink jet printing system, and show that some factors produce only the luminance (optical density) variation, and some other factors produce both luminance and chrominance (hue and saturation) variations. Two adequate color calibration methods are proposed to compensate for these variations: one is based on 1D linearization, which is used to compensate for the luminance variation; and the other is based on a 3D search in an existing color conversion table, this method is particularly designed to compensate for the chrominance variation.
