Team name: Scan The Profile

Team idea: Packaging converters often only receive a hardcopy from a previously printed package to start from. The converter may have the artwork file, but all information related to the print and color settings is typically not available.

How nice would it be to have software that can “reverse engineer” the color profiles of an already printed pack starting from a scan of that hardcopy package using an ordinary office copier? With image analysis and some artificial intelligence, it must be possible to guide the printer in right direction and thus avoid a lot of very expensive trial and error in prepress and in print production.
