Microsoft and Canon to sharpen up colour

Microsoft's plan to incorporate Canon's Kyuanos colour management technology into its forthcoming Windows Vista OS will accelerate the adoption of colour printing.

Microsoft's plan to incorporate Canon's Kyuanos colour management technology into its forthcoming Windows Vista OS will accelerate the adoption of colour printing.

Microsoft and Canon announced this month that the next Windows operating system, expected at the end of next year, will include Windows Colour System, based on Canon's Kyuanos.

Analyst Gartner said it expected other manufacturers and software developers to follow suit and partner with Microsoft.

Microsoft said the printing system supports extended colour space, greater bit depth and improved colour. It will also include a centralised colour control panel and a monitor calibration wizard.

Gartner said getting consistent colour reproduction remains a problem. This has caused numerous quality issues for businesses that rely on accurate colour printing, as well as for consumers who print photos at home.

The analyst said the alliance will result in improved screen-to-print matching and better overall colour appearance. The technology should reduce costs associated with calibrating colour.
