Color consistency is a major concern at the industry level, especially in print-media companies. Many studies had been carried out and it is shown that cyanmagenta- yellow-black (CMYK) color values are not consistent between monitor and printed output, as well as visual interpretation. In other words, the color values are devices dependent. The same image can appear differently after a printing process under different conditions; color consistency is compromised.
