Paper Abstract

Since ColorSync 1.0 was introduced in 1993, color management systems (CMS) are becoming a standard building block of modern operating systems. However, because CMS is an enabling technology, without other components in the system taking advantage of its capability, the end users may not experience the best results from this technology. This paper examines the approach that ColorSync takes to build a complete color platform which includes the following components: color management system with open framework, color savvy imaging model, easy ways to navigate and select color, device setup and calibration, scriptable interfaces, tightly integrated system. The paper points out the improvements over the previously released version.
