Back to Barbieri ONDorin Pitigoi is Color and Standardization expert and active in the graphic technology industry for over 25 years. He participates in many international committees, working groups and standards.How can accurate spectral measurement data help to improve print quality?
If we think, we mostly talk about color, but in a very direct sense, color belongs to the eyes that sees the color of the object rather than the object itself.
And we can describe spectral data as good collection of information, that allows us to understand the properties of any object.
In graphic technology we employ various methods to print and reproduce the graphic content in such a way that we achieve another goal, which is basically printing the expected.How can we print the expected?
To print the expected we need a meaningful way to understand how these spectral data can help the print operator to better control its process, in terms of the printing system.
And then in the end, to do what ...
Book recommendation: Printing-Process Control and Standardization
Publisher: RIT Press, Rochester, NY
Accurate, precise color reproduction on paper has long been a challenge.
In his book, Printing-Process Control and Standardization, professor Robert Chung demystifies and explains the process. A veteran technical expert and university professor, Chung offers educators and industry professionals guidance and instructional tools for teaching print media and graphic communication.
This book, published by RIT Press, provides color reproduction strategies for traditional offset and modern digital print production and includes color examples to illustrate measurement tools, process-control, color management and standardization.

Back to Barbieri ONTop performance with polarization filterDan Reid is a color communication expert and president of RPImaging. His main area of expertise is teaching printing companies about color and associated technologies.
The challenge to obtain outstanding color results may differ from material to material, and some material, like reflective or shiny, might need a different approach when measuring.Dan Reid:Today, I'm going to talk to you about a little secret method I've been using for my clients to achieve better visual color matches and improve spot color measurement conditions.
I'm speaking about M3 measurement conditions or known as polarization measurements.
Simply, it's just sunglasses for your color measurement device.
I have clients that typically print and use laminates or have extremely glossy materials like vinyl or metal.
And almost all of them suffer from having shadows that have no definition.
And this is because light is reflecting around bouncing ...
