Color Management for presentations solves a huge problem!
Friday September 26, 2003

Section 1: The need for good looking slide shows

Since becoming a digital advocate approximately four years ago, I have been singing its praises everywhere I can. That has involved giving lectures and talks from time to time. Giving lectures involves showing visuals and although I often bring digital prints to show, I am now making presentations in programs such as iphoto, keynote, go live and i-view media pro. My initial presentations featured my black and white portraits and nudes. The digital projectors usually supplied by the audio visual departments of the venues were usually less than adequate and generally rather archaic. Trying to set a gamma and color balance was almost futile. It became an issue of what is the best they could do and that was it. I was at the mercy of what was available. I dealt with this, albeit unhappily, with my black and white imagery.

Having worked laboriously putting together a recent show in go live, I was totally disappointed with the color balance of not only my color images but the black and white ones as well. When I presented in front of a large room filled with art directors in New York City, and preached the advantages of shooting digitally, I was at a loss.

Putting the presentation together and viewing it on one of Epson's digital projectors, it looked pretty good. What I was seeing on my Apple 17" Powerbook was acceptable on the screen. However, getting back once again to color management, what I saw at this recent conference didn't even remotely resemble what I had seen with the Epson projector. I pretty much flipped out before the presentation. To make matters worse, the audio video guy told me not to mention the shitty quality to my audience claiming they would find it acceptable. The screen images looked like red, overly saturated third generation dupes. I asked him if I was supposed to sell skeptics on the merits of digital based on those visuals on the screen. Obviously, I complained and apologized to my audience - something one should never have to do, but unfortunately happens all the time.
