If you have ever compared color using an instrument, then it’s likely you were evaluating a Delta E color difference. But did you know that there are four different methods to calculate Delta E? And did you know that after selecting one of these methods, you might have to consider different weighting components? It’s enough to make your head spin, especially if you have previously attempted to measure color using density, which can be a very challenging approach on its own.
Thankfully, it doesn’t have to be this way. Our industry now possesses the tools to make understanding color difference easier and more actionable than ever before. Instruments and software help provide objective information so your hands-on experience can be leveraged to the highest potential. By combining your skill and these tools to make the best adjustments on press, you can later evaluate larger amounts of data together to learn how to better control and improve your process.
Join Dan Uress as he demonstrates the tools that are out there and proves that you don’t need to be a printing scientist to make the most of them. Learning about today’s tools and technologies can help you make Delta E become Delta Easy!
