RIT experts were recently quoted in The New York Times (aka the “gray lady”) commenting about new user-friendly color-selection software from Xerox and competition in the high-speed digital-printing arena faced by Rochester’s fourth-largest employer.
Roy Berns, professor of color science in RIT’s Chester F. Carlson Center for Imaging Science, gave his impressions of Xerox’s “natural language color editing” software—that serves, in essence, as a kind of language “translator” making color correcting easier for non-experts. Read about the software in the May 2 Times’ article, “Teaching the Color Printer the Language of Humanity and a Palette of Precision.” And, you can hear some of Dr. Berns’ remarks on this week’s “Dateline: RIT – The Podcast.”
Also, Patricia Sorce, co-director of RIT’s Printing Industry Center, gave her observations about competition in high-speed printing. She was quoted in a separate Times’ article, “Prices Are Lower, but Profit Is Up at Xerox.” She’s also on the pod.
And, switching gears . . . a reporter from Rochester’s R News (Channel 9) visited RIT’s Formula racecar team last week just as students were getting ready to unveil this year’s newly built racer and head off to national competition next week (May 16-20) in Michigan. On this week’s podcast, hear RIT mechanical engineering major and Formula team project manager Anthony Capobianco describe the racecar to reporter Wendy Mills.
It’s Lilac Festival time in Rochester beginning today through May 20. Put your olfactory nerve to good use, and have a great weekend!
