International Color Consortium announces first ICC Developers Conference

Press release from the issuing company

The International Color Consortium will present ICC DevCon ’05, the first ICC Developers Conference, an intensive, practical tutorial day for application developers and others considering implementing ICC color management in their products, software and workflows. The conference will take place November 7, 2005, from 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Chaparral Suites  Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona.  ICC DevCon ’05 will be co-located with the IS&T Color Imaging Conference, which will be held November 7-11 at the adjacent Sunburst Resort.  The heart of the ICC DevCon ’05 program is a sequence of 13 half-hour tutorial sessions addressing  such topics as: How should applications present user interface color controls? When and how in a workflow should a print job be encoded for print? How should device drivers use ICC profiles? What are the trade-offs in DeviceLink profile construction? Under the hood: V4 CMM, V4 ICC profiles, and the new ICC Perceptual PCS Each tutorial will be presented by a principal expert on the selected topic.  The tutorial sequence will provide implementation details on how to build, use and get maximum benefits from color management using Version 4 of the ICC Specification.  The tutorial materials will be targeted to application and system developers and professional users. In addition, a panel of experts will host an interactive “From the Trenches” panel discussion during lunch, and color management product vendors will offer a “Show and Tell” of displays and technical demonstrations during an evening networking reception. “DevCon ’05 will deliver an intensive day through which users and developers of all types can get both the strategic view of ICC based color management and practical help in making ICC profiles work for their business,” said ICC Chair Craig Revie of Fuji Film Electronic Imaging. “ICC based color management in all its forms is here to stay, and is creating both challenges and opportunities for our industries. ICC DevCon ’05 will help developers navigate this environment by combining best practices, knowledgeable speakers, and vendor resources to deliver a world-class learning opportunity,” Revie added. The conference will conclude with a Wine & Cheese Networking Event and ICC Color Management Technology Demonstrations by ICC DevCon’05 sponsors and ICC members.  Sponsors include Adobe Systems, BARBIERI Electronic, Creo, The MathWorks, Inc. and Printing Impressions.
