The Durability of Digital Images on Photomedia
Abstract:Digital images can now be produced by a number of different imaging technologies. Ink jet has emerged as the most popular method for printing digital photographs. This is a direct result of the developments in inks, printers, media, and software during recent years, providing high quality images which come close to those produced by silver halide technology.
One further challenge, for ink jet systems, is to match the image permanence of silver halide. Photographs produced by silver halide technology, generally have greater image stability and can be archived for many years, with little sign of any deterioration in image quality. The stability of ink jet images, in different environments, can however, be a problem. The influence of the environment on image stability will be considered.

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.
