Creo Leaf and GretagMacbeth Perfect Custom Color Profiling for Leaf Digital Photographers
Press release from the issuing company
Photokina 2004, Cologne, Germany (September 28, 2004) – Creo Inc. announces that Creo Leaf, a leading supplier of digital camera backs, and GretagMacbeth, a worldwide technological leader in color management solutions, have entered into a cooperative agreement to provide Leaf customers the ability to customize ICC color profiles to fit different lighting conditions based on the shooting environment.
Integration for Better Color Management
The Creo Leaf Capture 10 application provides a complete set of professional tools for the operation of Leaf digital camera backs, including the new Leaf Aptus digital camera back. The application enables image capture through final output. Integrating GretagMacbeth profile creation and editing into the Leaf Capture application ensures accurate, reliable and predictable color even with changing lighting conditions through the creation of customized ICC color profiles.
Lighting characteristics of shooting locations vary tremendously. Custom color profiling enables the photographer to achieve exact colors by compensating for the specific lighting of each shoot. The editing capability enables the photographer to tune the colors to match specific requirements based on the subject, client preferences and output device.
The new color management and color profile customization capabilities of the Leaf Capture 10 application will be demonstrated at the Creo Leaf stand (Hall 14.2 stand M040) and at the GretagMacbeth stand (Hall 14.1 stand A034) at Photokina, September 28 through October 3, in Cologne, Germany.
