This Color & Color Management course presents the most important elements in color reproduction for printing devices and how to control and correct color at different stages during the reproduction process. We will discuss the roles of measurement, computation and interpretation of data; how to derive and represent a color gamut; the advantages and limitations imposed by color specification - focusing on their implications for color quality of the reproduction. The importance of test images, reference images and color standards will be highlighted. A number of demonstrations will illustrate the key points of the tutorial course.

Benefits - This course will enable you to:

• Understand the additive and subtractive principle of color reproduction
• Understand the role of color spaces: their suitability, advantages and disadvantages for color reproduction
• Understand the color difference delta E/delta #24 and become confident in using them
• Compare and classify basic halftoning techniques, their performance and limitations
• Understand the color separation process, under color removal (UCR) and gray component replacement (GCR) techniques
• Understand the advantage of a multicolor printing process over the conventional four component printing process
• Understand the gamut differences, gamut mapping and how a device is characterized for accurate color reproduction
• Understand the basic concepts of device characterization and calibration
• Differentiate between CMM based and sRGB based color reproduction approaches and understand the advantages and limitations of each approach
• Understand the importance of the viewing conditions when examining a color reproduction. This tutorial course is intended for engineers, scientists and managers who are new to color reproduction and those interested in refreshing or enhancing their current knowledge of color reproduction. Participants should have familiarity with color imaging and computer systems.
