FTA Membernar: An Intuitive Look at Spot Color Tone Value (Extended Version)

While spectral data and L*a*b* have become the major metrics for quantifying color throughout the printing industries, there is still a need to quantify the tone value of an individual color with a single number.

Murray-Davies Tone Value (MDTV) is a density-based metric which works only for CMYK colors and results in measured values that are far larger than the human eye perceives. Spot Color Tone Value (SCTV) is an L*a*b*-based metric which works for all colors and results in measured values which are very close to that which the human eye perceives.

Join Esko’s Mark Samworth as he presents an extended version of his Fall Conference 2021 presentation and reviews the need for a tone metric, compares SCTV to MDTV and shows examples of SCTV in use today.

Plus, join special guests Charles Spontelli and William Birkett for a live Q&A.
