INCITS W1 is the U.S. representative of ISO/IEC JTC1/SC28, the standardization committee for office equipment. In September 2000, INCITS W1 was chartered to develop an appearance-based image quality standard.1,2 The resulting W1.1 project is based on a proposal3 that perceived image quality could be described by a small set of broad-based attributes. There are currently five ad hoc W1.1 teams, each working on one or more of these image quality attributes. This paper summarizes the work of the W1.1 Microuniformity ad hoc team. The agreed-upon process for developing the W1.1 Image Quality of Printers standards is described in a statement located on the INCITS W1.1 web site (ncits.org/tc_home/w11htm/incits_w11.htm), and the process schematic is reproduced here as Figure 1, (in which a final, independent confirmation step has been excluded for brevity).
