To test the usefulness of Ektacolor Professional Paper as a pre-press color proofing method, one set of three predictor equations for each of the four primary printing inks was derived relating additive exposures on Ektacolor to colorimetric solid ink densities. These relationship would not yield to simultaneous solution.
Chromaticity coordinates of several sets of solid inks were matched on Ektacolor with an error of 2-10 MacAdam noticeability units. Probably because of the differences in surface characteristics of Ektacolor and newsprint, a visual match was not achieved.
