The third-year students of Ryerson University’s Graphic Communications Management program last week hosted the SPECTRUM+ Colloquium focused on expanded gamut printing. The colloquium, an annual event produced by GCM students, was built around three speakers making an impact in the world expanded gamut, including Kyle McVey, Director of Client Services at Jones Packaging, colour scientist John Seymour, who worked at QuadTech for more than 20 years, and Nawar Mahfooth, Chief Science Officer at ColorXTC.

McVey described three days of trails undertaken by Jones, one of North America’s most prominent packaging printers, for a client who wanted to venture into expanded gamut. Seymour focused on the history of expanded gamut, tracing its roots back to 1960 and reemergence with the arrival of digital prepress, and Mahfooth focused on the Dynamic Press Profiling technology developed by ColorXTC.
