To gain insight into the impact of variations in premedia imaging tasks related to color reproduction, a cross-section of creative and premedia professionals were interviewed. The data collected indicated that, based largely on the different focus of creative and premedia service professionals, the approaches of each population to specific color management-related tools and workflows resulted in a high potential for variability in color reproduction. While these results were somewhat expected, several clear trends into how those approaches were different indicate specific areas for possible improvements in production efficiencies and color consistency.
