Colour management – quo vadis? Audience interview
Dr. Jan Morovic from HP Inc. talked about the future in colour management and quizzed the CMS-attendees with questions such as
- What proportion of your print jobs are printed with multiple machines and collated for a single customer? Less than 10 % (with 29 % the main answer of the attendees)
- What is the most frequent color content that you receive from your customers? CMYK images with tags (with 25% the main answer of the attendees).
CMS exhibitors talked about their respective companies to give an overview of their offers.

Volker Dollinger, Aumüller Druck
Using Spot Colour Tone Value (SCTV) for FOGRA51 stochastic printing
Some of the difficulties with using Spot Color Tone Value (SVTX) are colour shifts, strong wet-dry drifts or missing standardized colour control. Solutions to this problem are linearization oft the TVI curve or regulating the print run with print control stripes.
