-**eciCMYK** (FOGRA53) is a cmyk exchange color space profile dedicated for the color communication of the print production. The profile extends the range of 53 production color spaces which represent specific printing processes and conditions (paper, screening, etc.). The underlaying characterization data set FOGRA53 was developed in the Fogra research project 10.057 with a media independent workflow in mind.

-Dedicated exchange color spaces are helpful means to create and exchange print files in a standardized working method. They should allow for showing the be expected print result in a predictable manner. The result should be viewed neither too bright nor too dull, i.e. with reduced color gamut and dynamic range. +Dedicated exchange color spaces are helpful means to create and exchange print files in a standardized working method. They should allow for showing the to be expected print result in a predictable manner. The result should be displayed neither too brightnor too dull (as would happen with an unnecessarily reduced color gamut and dynamic range)
  
-The **advantage** of using a cmyk exchange color space is to **design in a single color space**. A single proof print serves for the color communication with the print buyer – in contrast to separate data sets and proof prints per printing conditionpaper types respectively. As soon as the client approves the color quality, all needed color conversions to specific printing conditions start from eciCMYK.+The **advantage** of using a CMYK exchange color space is to **design in a single color space**.

-It is common practice in the area of conventional offset printing and beyond, that »ISO Coated v2« (FOGRA39) and »PSO Coated v3« (FOGRA51) serve as exchange color space. However it is not always clear, whether this color space represent an absolute (production color space) or relative reference (as usual for an exchange color space). In addition, digital printing applications require larger exchange color spaces, in order to reflect the capabilities of modern digital printing systems.+It has become common practice in the area of conventional offset printing and beyond, that »ISO Coated v2« (FOGRA39) and »PSO Coated v3« (FOGRA51) serve as a CMYK exchange color space. It is however not always clear, whether this color space represents an absolute reference (production color space) or relative reference (as is typical for an exchange color space).
