GCM 856

Colour Theory and Measurement

This advanced course explores how colour can be expressed quantitatively. A thorough understanding of colour improves jobs specifications, shortens approval stages and reduces reprints and other quality problems. This course, dealing with printed and non-printed graphic output, examines topics including white point, light sources and optical brighteners. Measurement factors such as different types of colour measurement instruments and geometries, inter-instrument agreeability are explored. Professional associations in the colour field are introduced.
