ICC Launches New Color Management Forum
RESTON, VA—August 29, 2006—The International Color Consortium announced it is launching a new user forum on color management on September 1. This will be an open forum hosted on the ICC web site at http://www.color.org/icc_users.html.
The user forum is a further step in providing information and resources on the use of ICC profiles to the user community, and is in line with the ICC’s goals of building a user community, increasing participation by both members and non-members, and improving implementation of the V4 profile format.
William Li, ICC chair, said “The goal of this listserv is to provide a forum where ICC color users and vendors can meet one another to swap advice, answer questions, and trade color war stories about their use of ICC profiles and ICC-based workflows.”
The International Color Consortium was established in 1993 to create, promote and encourage the standardization and evolution of an open, vendor-neutral, cross-platform color management system architecture and components. The outcome of this cooperation was development of the ICC profile specification, now in use by leading vendors of color management solutions.
NPES The Association for Suppliers of Printing, Publishing and Converting Technologies serves as administrative secretariat.
