“Achieving color accuracy within a production process and across a complex supply chain begins with a foundation in color and appearance theory,” says Mike Soriano, director of global services, X-Rite and Pantone. “Whether you are new to color or looking for industry specific information, we have a seminar that can help. Our team of application engineers brings a mix of practical information and technical expertise to help you streamline color communication, improve measurement accuracy, and produce consistent color.”
The Fundamentals of Color and Appearance Training Series is presented by X-Rite and Pantone color experts and incorporates color management experience and best practices. Attendees can register for either the full two-day seminar or one of the individual sessions:
- Fundamentals of Color and Appearance (FOCA) training provides foundational elements of color theory and appearance science including innovative ways to evaluate appearance characteristics like gloss and texture.
- Fundamentals of Instrumentation and Quality Control (FIQC) is a hands-on workshop where attendees use X-Rite spectrophotometers, light booths, and software to create color standards, develop appropriate color tolerances, measure samples against target colors, and analyze the results.
The new Fundamentals of Print and Packaging Series is for anyone in a print environment that wants to learn how to shorten make-ready time, lower consumable costs and increase ROI with color management equipment. Attendees can register for either the two-day seminar or one of the individual sessions:
- Going Beyond Density is designed to help print and packaging professionals achieve optimal process control on offset press by going beyond the density of solid inks to measuring spectral data.
- Print Process Control is a hands-on workshop that reviews the print process and examines how to use the latest spectrophotometers and software for process improvements. Attendees gain an understanding of process control best practices, the key concepts of the G7 methodology, and spot color management from Pantone.
