management specialists The Colour Collective have celebrated their first year
in business by winning a major order for a full colour management solution from
the British Museums Photography & Imaging Department.
The solution includes a complete suite of GretagMacbeth colour management software
& hardware, plus on-site training and support. The department often photographs
unique artefacts thousands of years old and so requires the very highest degrees
of accuracy if an image is to be used for research or publication.
GretagMacbeth ProfileMaker 5 will be used to create ICC profiles for the departments
Phase One digital camera backs, their scanners and their Epson inkjet printers.
GretagMacbeth i1 Display will be used for monitor calibration and profiling.
Once the solution is installed and the training is completed the department
will be able to capture an image of an artefact, display that image accurately
on screen and then output on the inkjets and be sure that the final print will
closely match the original artefact.
The Colour Collectives Sales Director Tony Kirk said, We are
obviously delighted to be working with a client such as the British Museum.
We feel that it is a testament both to our expertise and to our open, customer
centred approach to colour management.
The British Museums Photography & Imaging Manager Paul Gardner
said of the deal, We spoke to many different colour management companies
but felt that The Colour Collective listened to what we said and came up with
a comprehensive and innovative training package that was tailored to our needs.
