Characterization of Digital Silver Halide Printing Devices

Last years are characterized by increasing penetration of digital information registration and processing methods in silver halide photography.The sphere of our interest is a hybrid photographic technology (see Ref.1), which permits to print digital image, obtained by digital camera or scanner, on the silver halide photographic paper. There are many problems in this sphere; tuning and calibration of digital silver halide printing devices cause the main of them.One of the main problems, which rise on working with digital methods of image processing, is characterization (or calibration) problem of input and output devices. Characterization for RGB data dependent of device, and XYZ values independent of device has been investigated in Ref.2. For the similar studies see Refs. 3-6.The goal of this paper is to develop the calibration methods for digital silver halide printing devices for further development of techniques for estimating the tone and color reproduction in process printing with digital image processing, taking into account the subjective (psychophysical) side of the process. This should shorten and simplify the process of calculating the quality parameters at each stage of image processing and make it easier to choose the optimum conditions for carrying out process printing, with the final result of improving the quality of photographic images.
