  • Publication number: 20220131998
    Abstract: Certain examples relate to a method of color prediction. Data indicative of color characteristics measured from a number of color test patches is obtained. Data indicative of combinations of color resources used to render the color test patches on a color rendering device is obtained. A first predictive model is trained using the data indicative of the combinations of color resources as an input and corresponding data indicative of color characteristics as ground truth outputs. A second predictive model is trained using the output data from the first predictive model as an input and the corresponding data indicative of color characteristics as ground truth outputs. A progressive mapping is implemented by the first and second predictive models to predict color characteristics rendered by the color rendering device given a combination of color resources.

  • Patent number: 11310393
    Abstract: Certain examples described herein relate to a color processing apparatus and a method of generating configuration data for a color rendering device. The color rendering device operates based on color state instructions indicating output color states for portions of a rendered output. Render data may be generated by applying a halftone matrix and color data may indicate probability values for the output color states for input image areas corresponding to the portions of the rendered output. In described examples, configuration data defines an order of output color states for application of the halftone matrix. In the order, the output color states are grouped within the data based on color properties of a rendered output and an order within the clusters is based on colorant composition.

  • Publication number: 20220109781
    Abstract: Certain examples relate to a method of color matching by confirming a color-rendering device. Color reproduction parameters are determined for a reference and target color-rendering device. A color matching parameter is determined for the target color-rendering device based on a comparison of the color reproduction parameter for the target color-rendering device with the corresponding color reproduction parameter of the reference color-rendering device. The color-rendering device is confirmed dependent on the color matching parameter. Color resources of the target color-rendering device are configured such that a rendering of a color image on the target color-rendering device replicates a rendering of the color image on the reference color-rendering device.
