This paper explores some influences on measurement results and means to tighten achievable tolerances. A set of unprinted paper samples including IR3 reference calibration standards was prepared and measured with 5 benchtop instruments (Elrepholike) and 7 hand-held instruments (X-Rite Spectrolino). The samples were selected by surface (uncoated, matte, semimatte, glossy, high glossy) and effect of optical brighteners (OBA, from very low to high fluorescence).

The instruments were tested first for their short-term repeatability, then for inter-instrument agreement, which was better for the Elrephos, but could be matched for the Spectrolinos by adjusting for gloss and OBA response. Sample inhomogeneity required multiple Spectrolino measurements to match the Elrepho's XLAV aperture. With these methods and some precautions in calibration, measurements can be translated from one type of instrument to another with tolerances well below 1 ΔE.

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.
