    Tony Stanton presents: Color Management in the Graphic Arts

    Register here


    This webinar from the Inter-Society Color Council illuminates the sometimes-mystifying world of color management in the graphic arts. The term color management means different things to different industries. The color characteristics of textiles, paints, and theatrical lighting, for example, all rely on precise management of color to maintain consistency and predictability. In the graphic arts, ICC-based color management is woven through the digital workflows that typify today’s graphic production processes. In graphic media, color management describes the techniques used to produce consistent color appearance across different instances where an image is displayed.

    Additional background materials provided by Dr Stanton can be found in this document.


    Anthony Stanton is a Teaching Professor and Director of Graphic Media Management for the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). Among some of his accomplishments, Stanton spent twelve years as Director of Process Controls for the Graphic Arts Technical Foundation. In this position, he was responsible for designing and overseeing the manufacture of quality control devices for the printing industry.

    Many retailers have adopted LED lighting for their stores, and many of them have different characteristics. The CIE has adopted a number of "typical" LED spectra that hopefully represents the majority of types of LED's that retail, brands and industry are currently using. Using both current methods, such as CRI and CCT as well as newer TM30-18 as well as several other metrics, the variability among all these different LED's is analyzed. This all relates to the ability of retailers and their worldwide supply chains to effectively communicate about color both visually and instrumentally.
