Abstract
In view of the increased use of the Internet and Cross Media Publishing one of the most important questions is: Are current monitors consistent and the corresponding CMS good enough to reproduce a colored original or a proof? We have found that there is a large difference when displaying the same color patch on multiple monitors. Also from CMS to CMS, there is variation on between profiles on how the colors are to be displayed. Largest variations come form the CMS software that makes the ICC-profile and from the monitor measuring devices used to calibrate and profile the monitor. Working with a CMS software that makes the ICC- profile and from the monitor measuring device which generates the data to calculate the deciding color profiles. If different measuring devices generate different color data (from the very same color patch on a monitor) also variations in color profiles (e.g. for the very same monitor) will be the consequence. So the readings of color measuring devices become more interesting because of its importance for color communication over the Internet. The difference in color precision published by manufacturers of monitor-, CMS- and measuring devices (around delta E 1) and the color differences measured in this project (most between 3 and 15 delta E) is causing great concern.
