Quantification of Color Variation Introduced During Premedia Production
To quantify the potential variation resulting from specific operator-defined actions, a study was conducted in which several production workflows characteristic of digital print environments were replicated. Assuming different levels of color management understanding, a series of user-defined profile decisions were applied to a standardized target and a selected set of representative test images within the context of software applications customarily used in premedia production. The resulting test files were printed and color variance was determined via ΔE and paired comparison for a set of workflow combinations representative of those common in many premedia production environments.

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.
