Color Models in Modern Color Management
Follow the journey from the basics of color in print production to the modeling of complex print processes. Join Thorsten as he shows how modern color management depends on accurate color models. Learn how accurate color models enable precise spot color conversion, the use of smaller test charts, and the analysis of different print scenarios before printing. You will learn what color modeling is, why spectral data is essential, and what goes on behind the scenes.
