One of the more exciting events in the graphic arts calendar is the FESPA exhibitions. This is in part because the digital wide format segment continuous to grow fast, but also because it’s a very well organised show with lots of good stuff going on, complementing what’s shown in the vendor’s booths. You can get plenty of news from trade press sites and publications. Our coverage of the show is in two parts, and here is the first.
We at Digital Dots were invited to contribute to seminars and workshops in the new Colour L*A*B* section of the show. Strategically placed opposite the Club Fespa area, it drew quite a lot of attendees, both sitting down in the arena to listen to short lectures and presentations, and taking part in the 45 minute workshops. It was good to see the interest in applied colour management, and interesting to hear the wide array of questions that the attendees put to us.
At the same time several vendors of RIP systems used the FESPA event to announce support for the new colour profile format, ICC v5 (also called iccMAX). And Adobe graced us with their presence at FESPA, being part of the FESPA Colour L*A*B* programme, and launching new software at the show.
