Information technology — Office equipment — Automated colour profile distribution

This document specifies a method of automated colour profile distribution to large format inkjet printers. This document applies to digital colour printers and their printer controllers for which ICC colour management is necessary or desired. This document also applies to the print settings profile providers. The extent of automation covered includes the printer controller acquiring information about the overall situation, connecting to a print settings profile provider on the Internet, determining the best possible profile to download (if it exists), and downloading and installation of the profile. This document covers general concepts and procedures and does not go into a level of detail necessary to establish syntactic or semantic interoperability. This document covers ICC version 4 output profiles as specified by ISO 15076-1, but does not cover device link profiles.

Introduction

This document applies to the distribution of print settings profiles to large format colour inkjet printers.

An important consideration of a printer controller for a colour printer is the ability to apply colour

management. This is especially the case for commercial printing where the output products should be

of sellable quality.

The process of colour management is typically accomplished through the use of print settings profiles,

sometimes referred to as a “colour profile”.

A print settings profile is created by printing out swatches or charts, measuring them using colour

measurement devices, and using the measurement data to generate the settings and calibration data.

Ideally a separate print settings profile should be created for each situation comprising of at least the

following: type or make and model of the print medium; print mode; make and model and version of the

controlling software; and environmental factors such as temperature and humidity. That is because

each of these elements may substantively affect the content of the print settings profile. It can also be

necessary to create a separate profile for intellectual property, licensing, or legal reasons.

However, it is not always possible or feasible to obtain a print settings profile through this method of

printing and measurement because of issues with cost, time, expertise, etc.

Another way to obtain a profile is to download a pre-made one from the Internet. This typically involves

browsing or manually searching for a profile, downloading it if it is available, then installing it in the

printer controller if possible.

This document describes a method to acquire pre-made print settings profiles from the Internet in a

more seamless and automated fashion. The primary benefit of this method is to save time and reduce

the likelihood of error for the printer operators.

This method is especially useful for large format inkjet printers due to several reasons:

they tend to be used for printing on a variety of print media;

they typically already have printer controllers with sophisticated colour management;

they typically have skilled operators;
they are typically used for commercial purposes.

This method might apply to other types of printers as well, but it is not clear at the moment. There

might be additional parts to this document that cover those types of printers at a later time.

In the future, there is a possibility that print settings profiles can be computationally generated for

each situation through a combination of ‘big data’ and AI technologies, bypassing the need for pre-made

profiles.

There is also a possibility that print settings profiles can factor in more situational parameters, such as

different illuminant or observer conditions.
