The Standard object color spectra (SOCS) database was developed for proper evaluation of color-sensor quality of image input devices. The SOCS has been published in a ISO technical report, ISO TR 16066. A CD-ROM is attached to the ISO-TR. The CD-ROM contains more than fifty thousands spectra of objects, such as photographic materials, offset prints, computer color prints, paint (not for art), paints (oil paints, water colors), textiles, flowers and leaves, outdoor scenes, and human skin. Color gamut of SOCS for standard illuminant D65 was calculated and discussed. Color gamut efficiency of SOCS, which is ratios of the area and the volume of color gamut of SOCS to these within optimal color loci, is almost the same as the performance of photographic color reversal film. Also, color gamut of SOCS for illuminant C was calculated and compared to Pointer's gamut.

  • 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.
