Abstract
Managing and controlling color, from scanner to monitor to output devices, are
serious issues for the printing and imaging industries. Accurate color control is
vital for predictable quality of final product, whether printed or displayed. Costs of
controlling color are significant. Printing has become much more science than art
and any company, especially those involved in printing and other media, must
have a presence on the World Wide Web. Thus, controlling color between input,
display and print is more important than ever. As a result, spectrophotometers
and colorimeters are now necessary tools throughout the industry. Color
management systems have been developed to utilize these measurement
devices to characterize the color of input, display and output devices. These
hardware and software tools have not yet solved all problems of color
reproduction, but have made possible quantification, which is the essential
ingredient for controlling quality. Here we review color management, ICC profiling
