We (P. Jäger and H. Everding) were at the Viscom trade fair for advertising technology, digital printing and textile finishing in Düsseldorf. Two meetings are to be positively emphasised:
- a large distributor of a well-known printer manufacturer may want to promote free color software development. A solution was discussed with a hardware calibrated tablet for the colour correct display of the HLC Colour Atlas colour tones in the different output situations, with switching of the corresponding gamuts.
Should only one of the projects become reality, the visit to the fair was absolutely worthwhile for the idea of spreading free colour. So soon more information will be available here.
We were also able to discuss further internal strategy and priorities in detail on this occasion. Keywords here: Software integration, training courses on workflow with cross-media correct colours (using sRGB data and PDF/A), development of a free colour app, expansion of online colour comparison.
