This paper contends that current soft-proofing systems for print products should more correctly be described as soft-preview systems. They currently do not visualize the appearance and mechanical properties of a final printed and finished product with sufficient accuracy to be part of a formal enforceable contract between manufacturer and buyer. This paper discusses a systematic approach to assemble a measurement-based system which measures, models, renders and evaluates visual appearance attributes like gloss and elaborates on existing approaches and challenges that must be addressed in order to implement a high-fidelity real-world soft proofing service for a scalable web-to-print application.

  • 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.
