23 23 The ΔE’s CIELab ΔE CMC (2:1) ΔE CIE94 ΔE There are more…. Why did I pick these three?

24 24 Why did I pick these three? Because…. These are the three ColorMetrix fully supports! Let’s see how they can differ and why.

25 25 ColorMetrix Thanks Mike!

26 26 The ΔE’s CIELab ΔE – 75% “accurate” CMC (2:1) ΔE – 85-90% “accurate” CIE94 ΔE – 90-95% “accurate” Compared to human eye

27 27 Jim’s Simple Advice Pick ONE ΔE formula and stick with it. Important to compare apples to apples. Your customer may pick for you. Otherwise try to use the one most popular in your industry…. CIELab ΔE for commercial printers. CMC (2:1) ΔE for packaging printers.
