43The Leverage of Gray Balance in Controlling Perceptual and Quantitative Colorimetry Introduction
 

Summary: 43The Leverage of Gray Balance in Controlling Perceptual and Quantitative Colorimetry
Introduction
The issues of managing and controlling color,from scanners to
monitors to the digital printers/proofers and finally to printing
presses,areseriousonesfortheprintingandimagingindustries.
Accurate color control is vital in order to have predictable
quality of final product,whether it be printed on substrate or

output for printing presses, and on press. Hard costs include
wasted ink and substrate used in makeready and time/money
wasted on jobs that do not meet final customer specifications.
Great strides have been made in the printing industry in recent
years toward applying scientific methods in the pressroom,as
