is System Brunner’s standardization concept that, since its introduction in 1975, has been continually expanded and upgraded to keep pace with technological developments in all process stages of proofing, printing plates and printing, and today represents the most comprehensive definition of a standard. In the printing process alone, Eurostandard defines more than 30 influencing variables that lead to color deviations in a picture.
EUROSTANDARD/GLOBALSTANDARD is an internationally recognized industry standard that defines optimal nominal values with tolerances achievable under industrial-scale production conditions.
Various interest groups attempt to define standards: market leaders, technical colleges and research institutes, industry associations, suppliers, large customers. The nominal values of these organizations, including ISO and bvdm, are today approaching the Eurostandard specifications that have existed for years.
Since 1970 the real history of standardization has been written almost solely by System Brunner. And the reason is that System Brunner concentrates more resolutely than anyone else on researching the processes of print technologies.
Standardization remains an ongoing task. The technical development in print media demands that every standard be checked periodically to ensure that it is still relevant. However, not every new development needs to be immediately considered. Many developments hailed as revolutionary eventually prove to be nothing of the sort.
The standardization started by System Brunner at the end of the sixties has proven to be successful and enduring because the concept was right, and because this will be resolutely continued now and in the future.
