Paper Abstract

The standardization of the interchange of color pictures between color electronic prepress systems (CEPS) and CEPS related systems or components, has been accomplished with the ratification of Digital Data Exchange Standard (DDES). Now UEF01 for the exchange of line art data is also an ANSI Standard, and User Exchange Format (UEF00). Work is nearing completion on three other fronts with formats for Geometric Art files, device exchange standards for a digital color proofing systems, and monotone image formats. These standards and other standards coordination efforts, assisted by the formation of the Committee for Graphic Arts Technical Standards (CGATS), should help tie the fragmented graphic arts industry together and improve its overall productivity.
