Default Proofing Standard

I am sure everyone is interested in this!!!!!!?????
There is a big change afoot in the way colour is managed in printing. Up until now the current thinking is - that we calibrate our proofers to match our presses. Which seems sensible but is flawed. Now with this new ISO standard jobs are proofed according to the standard and we adjust the dots on our plates and our ink densities on our presses to match it. This is much better. Our customers can now get their jobs proofed on any calibrated proofer (Epson etc)any where in the world ( these can be checked by measuring a control strip with a spectrophotometer) WE also have a measurable colour standard to work to.
And if people dont yet know what LAB colours are - find out -Pantone are now measuring their colours in it.
