I decided why not email ECI to ask for fogra39L based no K profile. After all they should have one.
After emailing them at email@example.com
I got a reply that:
Technical details of permanent failure:
Google tried to deliver your message, but it was rejected by the server for the recipient domain eci.org by mxlb.ispgateway.de. [188.8.131.52].
The error that the other server returned was:
554 Sorry, no mailbox here by that name.
ECI doesn't even have mailbox configured at that address. Why bother listing one then
I wrote to another contact on their page: Public relations: Karl Michael Meinecke asking them:
Hello, you provide only only 3 patches 30/50/70
I would like to create my own test strip with different values. Could you send me the ICC profile (with no K ink) so that I could calculate values for other patches?
Is my english that bad
The reply is:
If you go to the download area on ECI website, you can get the complete package, including documentation
Seems like in Germany nobody understands English, even sellers from china reply better. I tried to explain myself better:
I have downloaded the color strip, but I want to make more patches in CMY that maches patches with K ink. For that I need fogra 39L based ICC profiler created with heidelberg print open (as this is what is used for fogra profile creation right?)
I tried to create a profile with i1profiler but the numbers doesn't match as it uses different engine.
If you could just send me a ICC profiler that was used to calculate CMY patches for the test strip it is all that I need. Thank you.
Reply is even more strange:
you can Download the caracterisation data on Fogra.org and the ECI profiles on eci.org . This is all you need. The values of ECI/bvdm graycon patches are taken from the respective caracterisation data set patches.
What next email other ECI contact like Vice chairman, Chairman do they even know their employees are not communicating with each other because it looks like the response is from incompetent employee. All other companies at lest forward email to the right person, not the case with ECI.
I can't contact Board: Darrian Young, Color & Image Consulting as no email is listed
