Fogra Colour Management Symposium – Science meets colour
After three successful and well-attended events in recent years, Fogra invites you February 6th and 7th 2014 to the fourth Colour Management Symposium to Munich.
Due to the increasing number of output channels print service providers are facing challenges in order to stringently communicate the visually appearance of the content data. Let alone additional parameters that can only be hardly controlled. This begins with the supplied artwork and extends to the different viewing conditions in which both mobile devices and printed products are consumed. The symposium is aimed at decision-makers, managers and service providers that look for ways to communication the visual information in a reliable and colour accurate way focusing on signage printing.
In seven sessions solutions to current and future challenges of colour management for the small-and large-format digital printing as well as for conventional printing will be presented and discussed.
It starts with the various colour expectations from customer and agency perspective, with Gerd Willschütz from the German Fashion Institute who will report on colour trends and the challenges in reproducing it on textile and beyond.
Recent research findings from FOGRA regarding the use of substrates with high amount of optical brightener agents (OBA) find their way into practical solutions and will be presented in the second Session.
The third session deals with the colour workflow automation. Print service providers can learn from both manufacturers and users, who show how to implement workflows efficiently.
The accompanying exhibition is ideal for important information gain and networking. Based on the symposium scheme "Science meets colour", the participants can improve their skills in one of four parallel workshops (90 minutes).
The social evening will be held at the event hotel, which provides a colourful stage show, great entertainment and a pleasant atmosphere for networking. The keynote speech will be given by Marti Maria (HP). He reports in his presentation on the possibility of colour management beyond CMYK and paper.
The next day begins with three sessions dealing with signage printing. These include the colour measurement, profiling and colour appraisal as well as practical examples of handling backlit materials or textiles. An outlook on the future of colour management will be the focus of the last session, when colour accuracy in 3D printing and highlights of colour inventions from academia will be presented.
