Colour Management of Prints with Variant Gloss

Advanced printing techniques are currently used to incorporate special effects in printouts. There is an increasing interest in the reproduction of material appearances and art work, with the focus on reproducing aspects such as colour, surface texture and gloss variations. However, for material surfaces of which the level of glossiness varies, the colour is often affected due to the applied gloss effect. The effect of the (local) gloss level on the colour is not incorporated in the colour management, which results in a mismatch with respect to the intended colour. We propose a workflow to control the reproduction of colour for the case of using multiple gloss modes in a printing system. Although currently one single ICC profile is used to manage the colour of the printout, our workflow proposes using one ICC profile per gloss level that adapts the colour transformations locally based on the applied gloss level. Our results show an improved reproduction of the colour and smoother colour transitions between gloss levels of prints with variant gloss.

More about this publication?
  • CIC is the premier annual technical gathering for scientists, technologists, and engineers working in the areas of color science and systems, and their application to color imaging. Participants represent disciplines ranging from psychophysics, optical physics, image processing, color science to graphic arts, systems engineering, and hardware and software development. While a broad mix of professional interests is the hallmark of these conferences, the focus is color. CICs traditionally offer two days of short courses followed by three days of technical sessions that include three keynotes, an evening lecture, a vibrant interactive (poster) papers session, and workshops. An endearing symbol of the meeting is the Cactus Award, given each year to the author(s) of the best interactive paper; there are also Best Paper and Best Student Paper awards.
