Gamutvision ICC profile visualization/analysis software released

Boulder, Colorado - August 23, 2006 - Imatest LLC announces the release of Gamutvision, a powerful program for visualizing digital color workflows and color management operations. Gamutvision is much more than just a gamut viewer. You can view gamut mappings and rendering intents in depth, and you can preview the effects of workflow settings and materials on your final output.

With Gamutvision you can

Gamutvision's versatile displays allow you to examine ICC profiles and gamut mappings with unprecedented precision and detail. You can view input and output gamuts in 3D L*a*b* space and on 2D a*b*, xy, and u'v' planes, and you can view Black & White response curves. You display all important color difference metrics, including Delta-E, Delta-E 94, and Delta-E CMC. And you can use these metrics to preview how images change when sent to printers-- a far more accurate and informative approach than the traditional gamut warning.

Gamutvision can be used by

The image below shows a 3D L*a*b* gamut volume in the Gamutvision window (reduced slightly): the wireframe is the Adobe RGB (1998) workspace. The solid is the output, mapped with (relative) Colorimetric rendering intent. The controls make it easy to compare different profiles and settings.
