ColorSet CMM Tool Kit
Monotype Imaging’s ColorSet™ CMM Tool Kit features a CMM (Color Management Module), a fully embeddable application that acts as a color engine to ensure consistent color mapping between input and output devices. Embedded within ROM or device drivers, accurate color transformations can easily be made from one color space to another, such as sRGB to CMYK for print applications. By converting colors between devices to ensure they are optimally mapped into the range of colors that can be produced by the destination device, the CMM allows the device to be used to it’s fullest extent, without loss of quality.
The CMM is based on patented technologies developed by Agfa initially for the graphic arts market. Monotype Imaging has optimized these technologies to meet the growing demand for exceptional color quality in desktop office devices. The result is increased performance and small code size.
CMM Supports Various Industry Standards:
•ICC rendering intents
•CMY, CMYK, RGB, sRGB, LUV LAB, CIE, LCH and ATD color spaces
•DIC, Euro and SWOP press simulations
ColorSet CMM Tool Kit Features and Benefits
Patent protection – Patent Indemnification is assured. Alternative CMMs may violate patents.
High–Quality Reproduction – The CMM is a major component of achieving high–quality results. Color accuracy is maintained, including documents that mix graphics with text.
Fast – Monotype Imaging’s CMM, proven faster than Windows® ICM, is able to strategically select interpolation points resulting in optimal performance in color transformations.
Small Footprint for ROM and RAM – Code size is optimized at 70kb. Efficient buffer structures minimize RAM requirements.
Ported and tested on every standard platform – Developers have the flexibility to select source code that is available for Windows, Macintosh® and UNIX®/Linux® platforms.
8–bit and/or 16–bit interpolation – Aids in achieving both fast conversions and preserving enhanced detail and wide tonal range across images.
Black channel preservation and pure color preservation – Preservation of black ensures results that are ‘pure’ black.
Supports n–colors – Not limited to CMYK.
Integration with Profile Tool Kit – Works seamlessly with Monotype Imaging’s Profile Tool Kit for creating, editing and optimizing profiles, and optimizing color gamut.
Compatibility with industry standards – Industry–standard color spaces, file formats and tools are supported for compatibility and ease of integration.
