Abstract: 

The experimental setup of a 8-channel inkjet printing system is proposed in this article. The aim is spectral reproduction, that is to reproduce picture within a spectral match with an original picture. A spectral model of the printer based on the Yule-Nielsen modified spectral Neugebauer YNSN equation is presented, discussed, and evaluated experimentally. This model can provide a fast estimate of the color response and spectral response of the printer.

Although the spectral and colorimetric precision of the printer model leaves room for improvement, the presented research forms an interesting foundation for further research in the field of spectral color reproduction.

Résumé

La mise au point expérimentale d'un système d'impression jet d'encre à huit canaux est présentée dans cet article. Le but de ce système est d'effectuer de la reproduction spectrale, c'est-à-dire de reproduire des images dans lesquelles les réflectances spectrales d'une scène ou d'images originales sont fidèlement reproduites. Pour caractériser le système, un modèle spectral de l'imprimante basé sur les équations du modèle spectral de Neugebauer modifié par Yule et Nielsen (YNSN) est ici exposé, discuté et évalué expérimentalement.

Dans sa forme initiale le modèle YNSN permet d'obtenir rapidement une estimation du comportement colorimétrique et spectral de l'imprimante. Connaissant les limites de ce modèle le travail de recherche présenté ici est une première étape en vue de futurs travaux en reproduction spectrale.
