Colormanagement for backlit materials

Abbr.: Backlit
Fogra-No.: 10.060
Head of project: Berthold Oberhollenzer

Status: Project started, ending July 2017 


Federal Economics and Technology Ministry distributed by the Arbeitsgemeinschaft industrieller Forschungsvereinigungen „Otto von Guericke" e.V. [AiF]/German Federation of Industrial Cooperative Research Associations.

Research objective:

This project aims at developing methods for a high fidelity color reproduction (printing the expected) on transparent media, focusing on three prioritized work packages:

  • Optimize the colour specification of transparent packing materials taking into account the variability of standard conformant white backing.
  • Colorimetricly (spectral) modelling of transparent and translucent media with the aim to replace the  more complex transmission measurment with reflection. 
  • Developing a concept for standardisation (ISO 3664 and ISO 13655) by providing tools and guidelines for measuring, profiling and visual matching of transparent media.
