Item Type:Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)
Additional Information:The paper is the result of co-research between University of Milan and UWE. The paper discusses alternative methods for image enhancement and colour printing based on unsupervised colour enhancement methods. The work explored spatial image enhancement: Retinex, RSR, ACE and compares global methods such as tools used in Photoshop: Histogram Equalisation and Auto Levels. The project demonstrates the beginnings of a cross-disciplinary approach, presented in the aims and objectives of the pan-European research network CREATE - Colour Research for European Advanced Technology Employment: to develop a pan-European network of research projects that brings together 8 European colour groups to exchange and disseminate knowledge through a programme of seven specialist events over four years (2007-2010); to bring together experts in industry and institutes so as to promote mutual benefit to promote multi-disciplinarity and economic robustness; and to facilitate teaching and learning for a generation of new researchers in the colour sciences and the arts to maintain targeted economic growth in Europe. It responds to Sir George Cox's HM treasury report 2005; and addresses the Lisbon Summit agenda 2000. UWE is the main coordinator and Parraman is the fund-holder and project manager. The other contractors are: Universita Degli Studi Di Milano, Italy; Gjovik University College, Norway; University of Leeds; University of Ulster at Belfast; Universidad Autonoma de Madrid, Spain; Universite de Reims Champagne-Ardenne, France; Pannon University (formerly University of Veszprem), Hungary. The research is a continuation from an earlier paper by Parraman: �Searching User Preferences in Printing: a proposal for an automatic solution', The International Conference Printing Technology SPb'06, 26 � 30 June 2006, St Petersburg, Russia. Parraman was invited to present research to Ricoh in USA and has attracted further research opportunities from John McCann Imaging USA, with a view to the creation of a new European network in film restoration.
