WORKSHOP Hands-on with RefIccMAX

Led by Max Derhak (Onyx Graphics) with Kai-Uwe Behrmann

In this session a hands-on workshop will be conducted utilizing the reference implementation library and tools for iccMAX. RefIccMAX represents a jumping board by which one can begin to create and use iccMAX profiles.

Topics that will be covered include:

  • Overview of projects, code, libraries, and tools available in RefIccMAX
  • RefIccMAX compilation under Windows, Linux and OS X
  • Using iccXML to create workflow specific iccMAX profiles
  • Incorporating data from other sources like MATLAB/Octave
  • Applying iccMAX profiles
  • Integration of the RefIccMAX CMM into personal projects
Attendees are encouraged to bring laptop computers pre-installed with the RefIccMAX repository including test profiles and executables for Windows/Mac to better follow along as the workshop progresses. People who pre-register will be directed where to get the latest files.

Some familiarity with ICC color management is recommended. Though some software programming topics will be covered, extensive knowledge of programming is not required to benefit from this workshop.

RefIccMAX project setup and build in Linux and XCode

This part of the workshop will show the setup, compilation and integration of RefIccMAX as a sub-project for a custom code project. Covered will be the Linux and Mac OS platforms.
