This standard defines a data set of ink value combinations that may be used to characterize four-colour process printing. This data set is not optimized for any printing process or application area but is robust enough for all general applications. The needs of publication, commercial, and package printing with offset lithography, gravure, flexography, and other printing processes have been considered. While it is primarily aimed at process colour printing with CMYK inks, it may also be used with any combination of three chromatic inks and a dark ink.
It is seen as an alternate to the ISO 12642-2 data set where more neutral scale data are desired.
