Color Reproduction Control for Large-scale Offset Press Printing System
Abstract:According to remarkable increase of color printing in newspaper and telephone directory, it becomes necessary to obtain same color reproduction for same photographs or advertisements printed by several printing factories distributed over the country. As several types of printing presses and plate making methods are used in the factories, it is difficult to obtain good color matching between the factories. In order to control color reproduction of this type large-scale printing system, paper and ink colors are standardized, then a standard tone reproduction curve proportional to L* of CIELAB are introduced. For each printing press, deviation from this curve is corrected by dot gain correction of output devices such as film setter and CTP setter.

For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
