Delivering expert advice on performance standards and colour related components of total solution design


We have representation on a number of industry committees such as the ICC’s medical imaging device group. This knowledge, expertise and exposure to the wider community, ensures best practice and standards compliant technology is developed.

FFEI’s direct link into a range of standards driven initiatives also enables us to better understand client requirements and to develop a matrix on which to measure quality and performance of technology produced. Our understanding of colour and standards is so highly regarded that we also represent a number of industry leaders at key forums.

The table below contains links to a number of published articles concerning colour reproduction and management that were authored or co authored by Craig Revie, Principal Consultant at FFEI.
