    (or its packaging), a video, or a printed advertisement. In early 2007, Hewlett-Packard introduced HP DreamColor—a set of technologies and use models that provide accuracy, predictability, and ease of use for color reproduction systems. HP DreamColor combines HP technologies with existing color management tools to provide outstanding color reproduction throughout a digital workflow.
  • Page 3: Managing Color

    Managing color We will begin with a brief introduction to color, including a description of one method of mathematically quantifying color. Next, we will present an overview of a typical digital workflow, and finally, we will discuss how color is maintained throughout that workflow. The property of color Color is a tricky thing.

    green light produces a reddish-purple hue (red + blue, or magenta), while subtracting the red results in cyan, a combination of blue and green. Thus, the cyan-magenta-yellow set comprises the subtractive primaries—typically used in printing. However, since real-world subtractive primaries don’t really absorb all the light at any given wavelength, combining the three doesn’t generally give a very good black.

    Figure 2. The CIE 1976 u’v’ chromaticity coordinate system. Gamuts The CIE 1976 system is a useful way to describe the color that a certain device or system is capable of producing. Since it is based on the additive primary colors (RGB), the subset of colors that a device or system can produce can be described by a triangle superimposed on a CIE chart;...

    The most widely adopted profile format is that created by the International Color Consortium (ICC The ICC was established in 1993 to encourage vendors to standardize on a single format, which would allow vendors to communicate profile information within a workflow. Figure 3.

    HP DreamColor Technologies In March 2007, HP introduced an integrated system of use models, technology, and products that provide accuracy and predictability for digital color workflows. The system, called HP DreamColor, leverages the standards described earlier in this paper, and introduces software and hardware products specifically designed for color accuracy and predictability.

    The HP DreamColor LP2480zx Professional Display The HP DreamColor LP2480zx display is the next step for professionals that work in a color-critical environment (Figure 4). The display combines 30-bit color (over one billion color possibilities) with unprecedented color control to provide end-to-end color predictability in a digital color workflow. Figure 4.
  • Page 9 An optional HP DreamColor Advanced Profiling Solution kit is available for calibrating and profiling the HP DreamColor LP2480zx display, and for validating and optimizing ICC profiles. The kit contains a colorimeter and related software (for both Microsoft® Windows® and Apple Mac OS X; Linux support is planned through an open source project) that provides a number of options for display calibration (white point, gamma, and luminance).
