Digital colour management

Course overview

Digital printing is a growing area and this new 1 day course aims to introduce the basic concepts of colour and colour specification and then address the theoretical ideas and practical methods for ensuring colour fidelity for colour images as they are moved captured and displayed on different media such as desktop displays, printers, mobile phones and mart tablets.
