X-Rite to Host Spring Color Training Series
X-Rite, a global leader in color science and technology, and its subsidiary Pantone, have announced a spring Fundamentals of Color Training Series in 15 locations throughout North America. The spring seminar series is designed to help attendees establish and implement color quality standards in their organizations. Taught by X-Rite color experts, the seminar incorporates decades of color management experience and has been conducted globally for more than 25 years. This interactive seminar is ideal for color specifiers, quality control professionals, lab technicians and anyone who evaluates or approves color. Attendees can register for either the two-day seminar or one of the individual sessions:
- Day One: Fundamentals of Color and Appearance (FOCA) training provides a solid understanding of the art and science of color, covering the physics of color, importance of lighting, how to use spectrophotometers and color data.
- Day Two: Fundamentals of Instrumentation and Quality Control (FIQC) is a hands-on workshop where attendees use X-Rite spectrophotometers, light booths and software to create color standards, develop appropriate color tolerances, measure samples against target colors and analyze the results.
“Over the past year, we have seen growing demand for our color services and trainings,” Murphy Keeley, vice president of marketing and services for X-Rite, said. “This is a result of increasingly complex supply chains for both industrial and packaging applications and more stringent color requirements from brand owners. Seminar attendees will leave the training with a better understanding of color science and where color errors can occur in each process step. Attendees will receive practical information on how to improve quality control processes by streamlining color measurement, reporting and recording.”
The seminar series commences on February 24 in San Francisco. Other locations include Boston; Saint Louis; Atlanta; Cincinnati; Del Mar, California; East Rutherford, New Jersey; Naperville, Illinois; Greenville, South Carolina; Pittsburgh; Dallas; Nashville, Tennessee; Minneapolis; Richmond, Virginia and Grand Rapids, Michigan.
