Digital Printing

The research focus comes directly from the Technical Committee “Digital Printing” (better known as Digital Printing Working Group, DPWG). They include process-independent image quality, colour management for the entire digital printing sector, and important sustainability topics such as energy efficiency.

Focus areas

3D

Colour in 3D: Fogra is researching into improving colour and geometric accuracy – from 3D scanning and 3D processing to graphic 3D printing.

Print quality & material appearance

Besides colour accuracy, there are other criteria that make a good picture. Fogra develops manufacturer-neutral and ISO-standardised procedures for evaluating the relevant image quality attributes.

Colour management

As the initiator of ICC colour management in 1993, Fogra continues to bridge the gap between colour science and practical application. The highlight is the biennial international leading event – the Colour Management Symposium.
