FLEXO Magazine : June 2012
color hardware manufacturers have produced in the market as legacy or revised. X-Rite will continue to look for opportunities with third parties and standard groups to see what this might look like. FLEXO: There are several model 530 spectro instruments press side, as well as a relationship with outside firms that critique prints. In practical terms, what is seen the day after switching to XRGA across model 530s compared to outside 530s? Are there shared standards across many sites? VandenBosch: The first practical step is to confirm the status of the model 530 instruments. Some models may be a mix of XRGA and non-XRGA devices for a transition phase. The X-Rite software products and its third-party software partners have the ability to determine what types of measurements are being generated at the time of measure. A simple set of questions will lead users through XRGA conversion of existing standards created with the 530. The XRGA white paper describes the typical difference from an XRGA to a non-XRGA device produces (A mean shift of 0.27 dE*ab would be the worst case error if the shared standard in this example was not converted yet). If all were converted to XRGA, this error would not apply. FLEXO: Do you have any insight on when X-Rite and Pantone will be able to provide a consistent standard book from edition to edition? As it stands, there are major delta shifts and burnout of red shaded blues in particular. X-Rite and Pantone continue to drive new value and capabilities in color control and specification. The newly announced PantoneLIVE initiative offers many new and compelling ways to de- fine and manage standards. Printed ref- erences, whether defined by a customer job OK sheet or even a PANTONE color guide, are subject to process variation. And all have lifetime and environmen- tally induced change to the ink/media color reference over time and use. It is best to stick to the digital data when set- ting standards. PANTONE printed books are only a representation of the central store of digital data.
