Author Affiliations +
Color continues to be an important issue in both the US and international graphic arts standards activity. Standards have been published defining color measurement and computation requirements, scanner input characterization targets, four color output characterization and reflection densitometric data. Work continues on standards relating to ink testing, reference ink color specifications, and printing characterization. Work has been completed, and is being published in an ANSI Technical Report, that relates the measured colorimetric data for printed color to the CMYK input for press proofing meeting SWOP specifications. Implementation of the color standards developed by IT8. CGATS, and ISO/TC130 is being promoted by the Open Systems Color Association (OSCA). Key among the OSCA activities is the development of measurement protocols and a registry of color output characterization data. These color standards are also finding applicability in the work of the International Color Consortium which is developing the interfaces to allow color profile data to be exchanged between color management systems. This presentation will summarize the published graphic arts color-related standards and review the current status of the work in progress.
