Sunday, 2:20 – 3:20 p.m. Analysis of Expanded Gamut Printing
Expanded gamut (EG) printing increases the overall range of colors that can be printed when compared to traditional 4-color process printing. But what does that expanded gamut actually look like? Are XCMYK’s higher densities sufficient or are additional orange, green, and violet inks a better path? Which parts of the color gamut are impacted the most? Steve Upton will graphically walk you through an explanation of EG and XCMYK versus just plain old CMYK, where spot colors fit in EG, and how it can affect neutrals and G7® calibration.
