ICC DevCon '06

For Users and Product Developers Working with ICC Color Managment

Monday, June 19 - 13:00 to 18:30
Rupert Becket Lecture Theatre, Michael Sadler Building, University of Leeds, UK


Digital information today includes color, but how should it be encoded or processed for a specific application? DevCon Europe '06 provides practical advice using real-world examples to help those who want to implement or use ICC v4 color standards. Experienced developers and users within the imaging, printing, and publishing color community share their knowledge in a series of tutorials designed to answer all your questions.

T1: ICC Version 4 Capabilities Review, 13:00 - 13:45
This tutorial will provide a review of essential ICC Version 4 capabilities, particularly those that advance beyond the V2 foundation.
Presenter: To Be Announced

T2: The Impact of Workflow on Color Management Systems, 13:45 - 14:30
This tutorial will review the series of workflow models that have been developed within the ICC Workflow WG, focusing on the ways in which such workflow models can be used to derive color management systems requirements and consider how color fidelity through a workflow can be affected by the command and control level of the color management system.
Presenter: Ann McCarthy, Lexmark International, Inc.

T3: How should device drivers use ICC profiles? 15:00 - 15:45
This tutorial will discuss how to construct device driver interactions with ICC profiles and with operating system color APIs.
Presenter: Luke Wallis, Apple Computer, Inc.

T4: Under the Hood: the V4 CMM and the New ICC Perceptual PCS, 15:45 - 16:30
This tutorial will introduce the fundamentals of the V4 CMM color rendering architecture, and provide insight into particular color rendering aspects that may be handled in a CMM, including white point compensation, black point compensation, gamut mapping, and rendering differences as a function of source profile rendering or re-rendering into ICC PCS (ICC profile connection space).
Presenter: Max Derhak, Onyx Graphics Corp.

T5: ICC V4 Colorimetric Rendering Intents: Applicability, Construction 17:00 - 17:45
This tutorial will examine ICC media relative colorimetric intent construction and the CMM rendering approaches that it supports.
Presenter: Marti Maria Saguer, Hewlett Packard

T6: ICC V4 Perceptual Rendering Intent: Applicability, Construction 17:45 - 18:30
This tutorial will discuss the details of the enhancement?as it affects particular classes of color rendering and as it impacts construction of the perceptual rendering intent tag data in a V4 profile.
Presenter: Jack Holm, Hewlett Packard
