BabelColor Color Translator and Analyzer

Description

BabelColor Color Translator and Analyzer, BabelColor CT&A lets you compare, translate, convert, and analyze color samples from any RGB space, from the British Standard 5252, FED-STD-595B, Munsell, and RAL CLASSIC color catalogues (Color Decks), and from user-defined color catalogues. Input data directly with any Eye-OneTM instrument. When connected to an Eye-One Pro, you get a strong ambient illumination analyzer tool, a full-featured densitometer, and many other spectral tools.

Add your own color list as a Color Deck using the "BabelColor CT&A Export" dialog of the PatchTool program, which converts color lists saved in CGATS, CXF or plain text format to the Color Decks database format.
General features
* Compare, convert, and analyze colors from any RGB space and color catalogues, two colors at a time.
* Measure colors using the Eye-One line of colorimeters and spectrometers. Transform your spectrometer into a full featured densitometer, a strong color-stability analyzer (virtual light booth, color inconstancy, metamerism), a multi-purpose spectrum viewer, and into a unique instrument dedicated to the analysis of monitors, light booths, transparencies illuminators, and ambient light as per ISO 3664.
* Designed for Windows and Mac. Compatible with Windows 98/Me/NT/2000/XP/Vista, Mac OS X (PowerPC and Intel), and Mac OS 8-9 (V-2.1 only). Although the interface is very similar on all platforms, the menus are laid out and labeled according to the user-guidelines for each platform.
* Includes many tutorials to learn how to use the software features and, at the same time, better understand color technology.
* Includes a complete help manual with basic color theory and detailed equations. "HTML Help" is used in Windows while a PDF file (250+ pages) is provided for the Mac. All help documents contain thousands of hyperlinks, for easy navigation, and a complete index. You can keep and use the Help even if you do not buy the program!
Color translation and comparison:
* For RGB spaces, input data in RGB, L*a*b*, L*u*v*, or pick a color in the "xy" chromaticity diagram.
* Input data using a connected colorimeter/spectrometer. Supported instruments: GretagMacbeth Eye-One Display, Display 2, and Eye-One Pro models. Supported instruments measuring modes: reflectance, emission, ambient illumination (when available for a given model).
* Select amongst twenty RGB spaces and one custom space. Pre-defined spaces include Adobe (1998), Apple RGB, Bruce RGB, CIE RGB, ColorMatch, Generic RGB, ProPhoto, and sRGB.
* Navigate through, and convert from/to, thousands of color chips from four well known color catalogues (also called Color Decks): British Standard 5252F, Munsell, FED-STD-595B, and RAL CLASSIC.
* Add your own color list as a Color Deck using the "BabelColor CT&A Export" dialog of the PatchTool program, which converts color lists saved in CGATS, CXF or plain text format to the Color Decks database format.
* Compare and convert coordinates between two RGB spaces, two color decks, or a RGB space and a deck.
* Get color coordinates in eleven different representations and variants (HSB, Hex #, L*a*b*, L*C*h*, Munsell HVC, etc.).
* When using a colorimeter/spectrometer in emission or ambient measurement mode, obtain the Luminance (cd/m2) or Illuminance (lux), as well as the Correlated Color Temperature (CCT, in kelvin).
* Get color difference values in seven industry standard formulas and variants (DeltaE*ab, DeltaE*uv, CIE94, CIE94-textile, CMC(1:1), CMC(2:1), and CIEDE2000). You even get a color difference when the two compared colors are characterized with different illuminants.
* See the individual numerical contributions of DeltaL*, DeltaC*, and DeltaH* to the total DeltaE difference, as well as Delta h*.
* Identify clipped coordinates (out of gamut) when converting colors to a RGB space.
Custom RGB space
* Define an RGB space with custom primaries, a custom illuminant, and a custom gamma.
Spectral tools
* Supported instruments: GretagMacbeth Eye-One Pro spectrometer (all versions).
* Supported instruments measuring modes: reflectance, emission, ambient illumination (when available for a given model).
* Density tools: Reflection Density, Dot Area, Print Contrast, Apparent Trap, Hue error, Grayness, Saturation. The ideal tool to measure your prints Dmax!
* Metamerism tools: Hunter Metamerism Index (MI), Special Metamerism Index (SMI), CIECAT02 Color Inconstancy Index (CII), and a virtual light booth; ambient illumination can be measured and assigned as an illuminant.
* RAL tool: get the RAL DESIGN coordinates of a color patch.
* Graph tools: acquire two spectrums and perform basic spectral math operations (Add, Subtract, Average, Multiply); compare your ambient illumination or flash spectrums to the spectrum of an ideal blackbody or D-series illuminant; user-selected colorimetric data can be displayed for both Observers (2 and 10 degree) and many illuminants; get the illuminance (lux or lux-sec), the Correlated Color Temperature (CCT, in kelvin), and the Color Rendering Index (CRI) of ambient and flash sources; get the luminance (cd/m2) for emission sources.
* ISO 3664+ tools: evaluate the viewing conditions for Prints, Transparencies, and Color monitors, as per ISO 3664. The measurements include: Color Rendering Index (CRI; CIE Publication 13); ambient illuminance (lux); monitor luminance (cd/m2); monitor and ambient color temperatures, chromaticity, and illumination uniformity; light-booth and daylight simulators evaluation (MI and Quality Grade based on CIE Standard 12, an updated version of CIE Publication 51).
* Export a spreadsheet savvy text report for the Density, MI, Graph, and ISO 3664+ tools.
