NPES Announces ISO Release of Process-Independent Color Data

Published

on

NPES has announced the ISO approval of ISO/PAS 15339, a publicly available specification that outlines how to use color characterization data to define process-color printing. Characterization data defines the expected relationship between input CMYK electronic data and the printed color on the final product – essentially a step above color profiling. The standardization is intended to eliminate the variable of the printing process and can be exploited universally.

“If we want to make printing a manufacturing process, it has to be interoperable,” says Dave McDowell, chairman of the ISO Steering Committee for Image Technology. “It’s like having standard sizes for clothing or shoes. There have to be common references that people can work to. It’s the final step.”
