ABSTRACT
An open loop color management system is implemented to reproduce an analog color of a set of colored fabrics by a digital inkjet printer. A tetrahedral interpolation technique is designed for mapping between device-dependent (RGB) and device-independent (CIELAB) color spaces. A set of 3164 color patches are used as training set in 3-D LookUp Table (LUT) to characterize the color printer. Then, the designed color management system is examined by the colorimetric reproduction of a set of 30 colored fabrics using the conventional inkjet printer. The performance of the system is numerically evaluated by measuring the color difference values between the original and the reproduced samples. The results showed that the color reproduction system appropriately works for both groups of samples located inside the color gamut of output device, i.e. printer, and those out of gamut samples while the later logically leads to greater errors.
