Afternoon session

1.30 pm Colour measurement for profile creation
Phil Green, London College of Communication

Phil Green is a Reader in Colour Imaging at the London College of Communication in the UK, where he runs the MSc in Digital Colour Imaging. He joined LCC after a period working in the printing industry in London. Phil has an MSc from the University of Surrey and a PhD from the Colour & Imaging Institute at the University of Derby. He has written and edited several books on colour and the graphic arts, including Understanding Digital Color and Colour Engineering.

2.15 pm Flexible colour management for graphic arts
Craig Revie, FFEI UK

Craig Revie has been with FFEI (formerly Fujifilm Electronic Imaging) since January 2001 where he is a Principal Consultant to the RIP and workflow development group. Most recently he has been responsible for the development of Fujifilm XMF Workflow, a software product designed to enable high quality production of graphic arts print production. In addition to his responsibilities with FFEI, Craig represents Fujifilm in the ICC and other standards groups. He recently served as ICC Chair and for quite a few years has been chair of the Graphic Arts Special Interest Group.

Previously Craig was with Harlequin Limited for eleven years and in that role was one of the developers of Harlequin Dispersed Screening (HDS) that now forms the basis of a number of industry standard FM solutions. He was also responsible for the design and some of the implementation of Harlequin Color Production Solutions, the company's suite of color process control options for the Harlequin RIP.

Craig has more than fifteen years experience in the prepress industry. He began his career at Xenotron where he led the development of a software RIP product. After Xenotron, he joined Dr. Ing Rudolph Hell where he developed algorithms for colour screening and the display of images on a colour monitor, among other projects. Craig then moved to Gems of Cambridge where he developed The Color Solution, a high performance image processing system for prepress applications.

3.00 pm ICC profile internal mechanics
