X-Rite Incorporated, a global leader in color science and technology, and its subsidiary Pantone announced that its popular Fundamentals Seminar Series focusing on color science and quality control is now available in an online learning format. The remote format consists of two courses and features self-paced modules, downloadable course guides, educational videos, product demonstrations, and interactive activities. 

Attendees will learn about color theory and how to measure, control, and communicate color to improve production workflows, reduce waste, and meet sustainability goals. In addition to the virtual format, the seminar will also be held in-person this fall throughout the United States.

“Last year, we announced our first virtual fundamentals seminar series course, the Fundamentals of Color and Appearance. We are excited to announce that the second course, Fundamentals of Instrumentation and Quality Control (FIQC), is now online, too,” said Raj Shah, vice president of Marketing, X-Rite and Pantone. “Together, these courses provide a mix of color theory and practical information to help attendees implement color measurement and quality standards across their workflows and supply chains.”

The Online Fundamentals Seminar is a two-course series with more than 10 hours of video instruction taught by X-Rite color experts. To enhance the remote training experience, attendees have access to a discussion board and a live Q&A with an X-Rite color expert. The seminar is ideal for anyone who works with or specifies color, including quality control professionals, lab technicians, part suppliers, product developers, designers, and manufacturers.

X-Rite Fundamentals Seminar Series courses include —

Fundamentals of Color and Appearance (FOCA), which focuses on color and appearance science. From the physics of color to lighting, spectrophotometers, and color data, this course will teach how to measure, view, and understand color communication and data.

Fundamentals of Instrumentation and Quality Control (FIQC), a hands-on, color quality control workshop using X-Rite instruments and software. Topics include —

  • Creating color standards.
  • Developing appropriate color tolerances.
  • Measuring samples against target colors while analyzing the results.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
