2018 International Color Consortium Developers Conference Set to Inform, Guide and Teach Attendees Real-World Practical Application of iccMAX®

Reston, VA - NPES The Association for Suppliers of Printing, Publishing and Converting Technologies announces ICC DevCon 2018, the International Color Consortium Developers Conference, coming February 27, 2018 to the Fogra Research Institute for Media Technologies in Munich Germany. The highly interactive dual format program will first present, and then guide and teach attendees how they can utilize the very latest in new color management solutions.

ICC DevCon 2018 will feature a top-notch expert panel of presenters on advanced color management topics. Further enhancing the program will be an iccMAX hands-on workshop focused on real-world scenarios that can be directly addressed by iccMAX-based approaches, which could not be easily accomplished with previous color management solutions. Presentation topics will include:

  • n-color separation with iccMAX
  • Implementing a simple color model using the Calculator element of iccMAX
  • How can iccMAX benefit digital photography?
  • Handling spectral images with standard and custom illuminants
  • Implementing observer metamerism correction on wide color gamut display using the iccMAX Framework
  • Correction of display viewing angle with iccMAX, and
  • Color and translucency definition and workflow for graphical 3D printing.

The presentations will be followed by a hands-on workshop that utilizes the reference implementation library and tools for iccMAX—RefIccMAX—a complete toolkit for making and using iccMAX profiles that can readily be integrated into any application. The workshop topics will include:

  • Overview of projects, code, libraries, and tools available in RefIccMAX
  • RefIccMAX compilation under Windows, Linux and OS X
  • Using iccXML to create workflow specific iccMAX profiles
  • Incorporating data from other sources like MATLAB/Octave
  • Integration of the RefIccMAX CMM into personal projects.
  • Applying iccMAX profiles, and
  • Integration of the RefIccMAX CMM into personal projects.
