22 December 1998 Expanded Neugebauer model for printer color formation
Author Affiliations +
A model to predict colorimetric value for color printers is presented. The Neugebauer narrow-band color mixing model was applied with modifications. While sixteen primaries are used for four-color printing process in Neugebauer mode, we used two data sets in our model, one with eighty-one CMYK primaries and the other with one hundred twenty-five CMY primaries. Two Yule-Nielsen factors were applied to optimize the CMYK set and the CMY set separately. The Yule-Nielsen factors were optimized by minimizing (Delta) E*L*a*b* or (Delta) E*94. The Neugebauer calorimetric quality factor was applied as a weighting function to optimize dot areas. By optimizing primaries and applying the CQF weighting function, the average color error and the maximum color error decrease significantly.
