    • COLOURMANAGEMENT Closing theColour Loop Colour New solutions at Print 09 introduce added intelligence to colour management. By DOUG pICkLyk P rint 09 in Chicago was awash in new colour management tools introduced by vendors, all taking on the challenge of creating easy-to-use software that allows printers to output consistent colour across their shops regardless of how jobs are printed—using conventional printing ink, toner or dig- ital inkjet devices. New sheetfed offset presses and digital colour presses featur- ing inline spectrophotometers with automated feedback sys- tems are now being introduced to the market and are removing some colour variability from press runs. But getting to the right colour and being consistent from job to job in all departments of a shop requires specialized colour tools upstream and post- production too. The built-in expertise of new colour management software allows novice users to follow simple step-by-step onscreen wiz- ards to calibrate output devices and ultimately achieve con- sistency and pressroom standardization. Colour tools are also being integrated into automated workflows to perform all of the work “under the hood,” while also generating feedback loops and reports to confirm that established pressroom standards are being GMG is bundling its ColorServer 4.6 colour management solu- maintained.

Thirty key 417 cubic kilometres of ice, as much water as there is in Lake international glaciers are melting about six times faster than in the 1980s. Most Canadian Erie, each year. Not only has this flow of ice glaciers are small compared with the massive sheets that cover Greenland and Antartica, and been steady, it’s rising by about more sensitive to climate change. They are seen as the proverbial canary in the coal mine. 12.5 cubic kilometres per year. If it continues to rise at that rate, many of the 104 million people who live within a metre of sea level may have to move by the end of the century. The possibility is no longer just theoretical. A small rise in sea level has already forced the Alaska government to consider evacuating the entire Eskimo village of Shishmaref, which lies on a tiny island on the edge of the Arctic Circle. It’s also why four other coastal communities – Kivalina, Koyukuk, and Newtok in Alaska and Tuktoyaktuk in Canada – may have to be evacuated as well within the next 50 years. Mike Demuth won’t deny he had ancient animals and Stone Age hunters like those found by the Kuzyks in mind when he got the idea of skiing across the Brintnell Glacier in the spring of 2007.
