Color Management Team Leader

Job Description

The Color Management Team Leader at LCP, Inc. is expected to possess the level of trade skills as required to calibrate an offset press, digital proofing system, digital press, inkjet device or any other CMYK imaging device using the IDEAlliance G7® method.

G7 is defined as:

  1. An implementation of the new ISO 10128 standard for “Near-Neutral” calibration.
  2. A specification for consistent gray scale appearance that is universally applicable to all color imaging processes.
  3. A calibration technique to adjust image values within an imaging system to meet the G7 specification.
  4. An enhanced basis for process control in any imaging process.
  5. A basis for “shared appearance” that aligns the appearance of diverse printing methods or classes as closely as possible to each other without additional color management.

 

Developed originally for halftone laminate proofing systems, G7 has since been applied successfully to a wide range of other processes including offset lithography, gravure, flexography, dye-sublimation, ink-jet, electrophotography, screen printing and photographic printing. Using simple 1-dimensional curves, G7 yields the closest possible visual match between different imaging systems that can be achieved without more complex multi-dimensional systems such as ICC color management.

The Color Management Team Leader is responsible for the safe and efficient operation of all electronic and digital prepress equipment and processes according to the rules and procedures established by LCP, Inc. and documented through Company Policies, Quality Manual and Standard Operating Procedures (Work Instructions), and applicable operating manuals.
