The rapid evolution of the low-cost color printing and image capture markets has precipitated a huge increase in the use of color imagery by casual end users on desktop systems, as opposed to traditional professional color users working with specialized equipment. While the cost of color equipment and software has decreased dramatically, the underlying system-level problems associated with color reproduction have remained the same, and in many cases are more difficult to address in a casual environment than in a professional setting. The proliferation of color imaging technologies so far has resulted in a wide availability of component solutions which work together poorly. A similar situation in the desktop computing market has led to the various `Plug-and-Play' standards, which provide a degree of interoperability between a range of products on disparate computing platforms. This presentation will discuss some of the underlying issues and emerging trends in the desktop and consumer digital color imaging markets.
