Paper Abstract

The color definition activities of Subcommittee 4 of ANSI Standards Committee IT8 (Digital Data Exchange Standards) are described. This subcommittee is charged with the responsibility of developing color calibration tools, color definitions, reference targets, and data sets necessary to facilitate color data exchange within the graphic arts electronic prepress application area. Two standards (IT8.7/1 and IT8.7/2) have been completed which define targets for input scanner calibration with transparency and reflection photographic products. A third standard (IT8.7/3) has been completed which provides a reference data set for CMYK to printed-color characterization. Work is still continuing on the development of a scanner calibration target for use with negative films and on the development of default definitions for three-component color data exchange.
