Addressing the Problems of Color Science and Management in Toner-based Digital Print
Abstract:There are long standing problems in achieving accurate and consistent colors in digital laser printers and color copiers. Despite efforts of incorporating a standardizing ICC profile in digital color equipment, the ICC profile is still subject to various internal and external factors. The inherent conflicts of color management are associated with the calibration of color printers, the differences between the monitor and the actual CMYK prints, soft color proofing on the RGB monitor, inconsistent printer settings over time, variation of colors in different printers and color inconsistencies in repeated printing.
This paper aims to address these problems and presents a novel solution for them. The solution was developed based on both objective and subjective color comparison and Artificial Intelligence technology. It is used to calibrate and stabilize digital printers in a quick and easy fashion by means of ICC profiles.

For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.
Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
