Clemson University to Host Color Measurement and Management Symposium

Press release from the issuing company

January 26, 2004 -- The Color Measurement and Management symposium March 10-12, 2004 will be hosted by the Clemson University Department of Graphic Communications (CUGC). Featuring presentations, demonstrations and extensive hands-on learning activities, this 2 1/2 day symposium gathers industry experts from around the country to explain and share their understanding of these systems and the process control necessary to make them work for you. The Color Measurement and Management symposium is a technical program designed for industry professionals who need to communicate about and manage color effectively. Participants will learn the workflow for color reproduction, the calibration and use of color measurement devices, the techniques for profiling scanners, digital cameras, computer monitors, proofing systems and press capabilities, and the application of these tools and techniques to ensure consistent and repeatable color reproduction. An "across the printing process" workflow will be considered, to include offset lithography, flexography, gravure, inkjet, screen printing and other printing processes. Color management methodology allows you to maintain control of color reproduction across the spectrum from the computer to proof to printed product. If you are not satisfied with discrepancies between proofs and product, you need to come to terms with color measurement and management. CUGC is proud to be recognized as a world-wide leader in Graphic Communications education. Through the generous support of its industry partners, the CUGC labs are fully functional printing facilities in which students learn first-hand all phases of production for offset lithography, flexography, screen printing, gravure and digital print applications. Boasting an enrollment of over 400 students, CUGC is the one of the premier educational facilities for the printing industry.
