At the end of the two 5-hour telecons last week of the joint Digital
Printing and Color Workflow WG meeting, the attendees wanted to get this
review of the IPPJDF mapping of color and imaging attributes finished this
week, so we agreed to one more meeting to finish up:

Tuesday, December 17, 2002 (noon-2 PM PST (3-5 PM EST)

This message is being forwarded separately to the PODi web board and
printing-jobticket at (which can't take such a long cc list).

We will continue to have color scientists from EFI (Thor Olson), HP (Mary
Nielsen), and Xerox (Ann McCarthy) attending.  Also these telecons continue
to be a joint CIP4 Digital Printing WG and Color Workflow WG call as well.

The details are: 
Tuesday, December 17, 2002

1. Finish the review of the JDF color and imaging subset for the Digital
Printing Interoperability Conformance Specification (ICS) by looking at the
IPP to JDF mapping table:

See the latest mapping specification have just been posted as:
f is just the compressed .doc file (187Kb)

(To see or print just color and imaging turn off hidden text:
Tools/Options/View/Hidden Text off (and All off).

      a. check the priority
      b. check the mapping to JDF intent and JDF process
      c. check the JDF extensions listed in the table and in JDF/1.1a 
         updated for the JDF extensions (highlighted in green):

2. Any more details with the EFI attributes for which we only have names.

3. Plan slide presentation to CIP4 Technical Working Group Meeting
      a. Use cases for color workflow
      b. JDF color and imaging extensions

The details of the semantics of the IPP attributes are contained in the
updated IPP Color and Imaging spec available at:
-rev.doc  is just the compressed .doc file (238Kb).

If you have comments on this IPP spec you want to send before or after the
meeting, lets use the digital_printing at DL.
