It has really been too busy to write something each day. I do have some topics rolling around in my head and will write more when I get back to the office. So far it has been a good conference with many excellent speakers.
During lunches and other networking opportunities I did pick up a bit of frustration on the part of Ink Vendors and users of G7 related to repeatability of ink trap from press run to press run. Achieving the ISO spec for the individual Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black is no problem but getting repeatable trapping (measured with L*a*b* of course) is often times very difficult.
The panel I was part of focused on press room process control. I bring this up because part of the answer to the ink trapping problem is better utilization of process control techniques by printers. I presented two case studies of printers who have successfully utilized our ProofPass.com product to see significant improvements in press room quality and consistency.
I will focus on these two topics and more when I have more time to write.
