Overview

Test Targets is a collection of scholarly papers contributed by faculty, students, and alumni of Rochester Institute of Technology. It is a collaborative effort exploring the use of scientific method for color imaging and process control. The content is a result of student teamwork to publish a technical journal for a graduate-level course titled: Advance Color Management. Offered by the School of Print Media (SPM) at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), the course is “a platform to experiment and to realize a new digital imaging paradigm and the dynamics of teamwork” (Robert Chung, Gravure Research Professor). Test Targets 5 includes articles examining the issues involved in the implementation of ICC profiles into a pre-media workflow and how these issues affect color matching accuracy in production. The PDF/X workflow was implemented for the production of TT5, resulting in an article exploring the various standards and procedures required. This edition of Test Targets acknowledged the end of film-based systems with a historical exploration of lithography and test target creation. How ICC profiles are created can have a great impact on image results. The Gallery of Visual Interest features a pictorial tour of the differences ICC profile settings can have on image reproduction, as well as illustrating other color-based image handling variations.
