ColorMatic To Be Bundled with Imaging Hardware

OEM version of ColorBlind provides entry-level color profiling By Dave Nagel
Imaging Technologies has developed a new version of its ColorBlind ICC color profiling software. The new version, called ICC ColorMatic EZ, is designed to be bundled with imaging hardware, including cameras, scanners and printers. It provides basic capabilities and entry-level tools for color profiling.

ColorBlind ICC ColorMatic EZ will profile scanners, monitors and printers in a software-only solution. Once a scanner is profiled, it is used to measure targets to create a printer profile. The monitor is profiled using a visual calibration technique to balance grays and RGB guns through the controls of the video card. Imaging Technologies will also provide a reduced-cost upgrade path to the professional version of ColorBlind.

In the next few months, ICC ColorMatic EZ will include a new architecture of ColorBlind, which will include support for digital cameras, multi-channel printers and other color devices.

The company's professional-level color profiling suite, ColorBlind, is available for Macintosh and Windows. The Professional version is bundled with ColorBlind Prove It! and ColorBlind Edit to provide a complete ICC solution from scanner to monitor to print. The company also produces ColorBlind Matchbox, an all in one ICC-compatible color matching solution for Mac and Wndows. Matchbox includes software for creating ICC profiles of any color device, a colorimeter for creating printer profiles, profile editing and image soft proofing with ColorBlind Edit, Pantone, and spot color calibration with ColorBlind Spot.
