color matching
Last modified: Monday, February 09, 2004 

(n.) The process of assuring that a color on one medium remains the same when converted to another medium. This is extremely difficult because different media use different color models. Color monitors, for example, use the RGB model, whereas process printing uses the CMYK model. As color desktop publishing matures, color matching is gaining more and more attention. The most recent Windows and Macintosh operating systems include a color management system (CMS) to assist in color matching.

Also see The Science of Color in the Did You Know . . . ? section of Webopedia.
