I feel that there is way too much discussion of color temp and not enough discussion of CRI. In the end, it's CRI that is important and Solux delivers.
True, the inksets have less metamerism these days so prints are less fixed on one color temperature if the Kruithof curve is respected in lighting them and the lamps used have a continuous spectral distribution, both in the studio and gallery.
I'm a bit more sceptic on the light at homes, offices, the trend is towards saving energy and that means (compact) fluorescents and LED light here in Europe. At best both get several layers of broadband fluorescents but that will not hide their one to three band spectral origin, not if they still have to save energy.
BTW, few artists know what kind of lighting is used for their prints even if their prints go to major exhibitions. Often you print for more shows after another and at the end the art buyer will not use the same light when that print gets its place on the wall. I think we have an obligation to add a lighting advice on paper with the print. Probably a better service to the customer than adding a chop mark or certificate.
I should make changes here too, still working with the Just Normlights and Philips 950 fluorescent overall lighting where the printers are. Added some 3000K halogene lamps to mix and switch between them on the final proof check. Will add the Philips Diamondline 4100K and see if that's the better compromise.
