The Reproduction of Colour
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungCompletely revised and updated, this book has become a standard work in this area and is widely used as a basis for lectures in universities and specialist institutions. Includes information on the latest digital and printing technologies and is illustrated with many new photographs and diagrams. Divided into six parts, the book presents the foundations of colour imaging and colour reproduction before going on to discuss how these basic principles can be applied to photography, television, printing and digital imaging. The final part deals with the evaluation of colour appearance. The Reproduction of Colour presents a tried-and-tested balance of theory and practical application, which will appeal to both students and practicing engineers. * Describes the fundamental principles of colour reproduction for photography, television, printing and electronic imaging. * Provides detailed coverage of the physics of light and the chemistry of colorants. * Includes new chapters on digital printing and digital imaging discussing colour reproduction on HDTV and digital cinema systems. * Features expanded coverage of the evaluation of colour appearance, including a detailed treatment of colour appearance models and the colour inconstancy index.

PortraitRobert Hunt, formerly Assistant Director of Research, Kodak Research Laboratories in Harrow, England, is an independent colour consultant and visiting Professor of Colour Science at the University of Derby. He has been Chairman of the Colour Group of Great Britain (1961-63); Chairman of the Colorimetry Committee of the CIE (1975-83); and President of the International Colour Association (1981-85). He has written over a hundred papers on colour, vision, colour reproduction, and colour measurement. He is an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society and a member of the Royal Institution where he served as Vice-President (1985-87). He has been awarded the Progress Medal of the Royal Photographic Society, the Judd-AIC Medal of the International Colour Association, and the Gold Medal of the Institute of Printing.
Pressestimmen"Hunt's ability to transmit complex technical information in a communicable, easy reading manner is to be applauded...will make a difference n the careers of scientists, engineers, color developers, and color technologists, who undertake to study and learn from it." (COLOR research and application, December 2005) "...a standard...[that] is widely used in research, teaching, and lecturing." (CHOICE, July 2005)
