Remote Color Press Checks

This is just plain impressive. I figured it would happen someday, but never thought it’d be this soon.

Those of you who are familiar with the commercial printing process—imagine a system where your (pre-approved) monitor is calibrated in real-time to match a remote location. You’d be sitting in your office while a designer, either on the other side of town or the other side of the planet, makes adjustments to a project, and you see exactly the same color as he or she sees!

Then, when the job is on press, imagine a finely-tuned scanner digitizing a sample press sheet and sending that image to you via the internet, at which time you view it on that same calibrated monitor with a guarantee that what you see matches what’s on paper.

If you’re scratching your head over what I’m talking about—just move along. There’s nothing to see here. The rest of you should take a few moments—now or later—and peek at the full article. [Small Business Times]
