New this year are dedicated training sessions specifically designed for print and packaging professionals interested in measurement-based process control.

Achieving color accuracy within a production process and across a complex supply chain begins with a foundation in color and appearance theory, said Mike Soriano, Director of Global Services X-Rite and Pantone.

Our team of application engineers brings a mix of practical information and technical expertise to help you streamline color communication, improve measurement accuracy, and produce consistent color.
