BabelColor CT&A

Description

BabelColor CT&A is a Color Translator & Analyzer, an software that provides you color measurement and analysis. BabelColor (CT&A) lets you select, compare, and convert color samples from twenty preset RGB spaces, and a custom space that you can define with any Illuminant, primaries and gamma, in a color-managed environment. You can also select and convert colors from color catalogues (Color Decks); the provided catalogues are the colors of British Standard 5252, FED-STD-595B, Munsell, and RAL CLASSIC, and you can create your own catalogue by exporting a color list (ex. A Pantone color list saved in CxF format) using the "BabelColor CT&A Export" dialog of the PatchTool software (purchase of PatchTool not required for this export).General features
1. Compare, convert, and analyze colors from any RGB space and color catalogues, two colors at a time.2. 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, a unique instrument dedicated to the analysis of monitors, light booths, transparencies illuminators, and ambient light as per ISO 3664, and into a specialized paper whiteness analyser.3. Designed for Windows and Mac. Compatible with Windows 2000/XP/Vista/Windows 7, Mac OS X (PowerPC and Mac Intel). Although the interface is very similar on all platforms, the menus are laid out and labeled according to the user-guidelines for each platform.4. Includes many tutorials to learn how to use the software features and, at the same time, better understand color technology.5. Includes a complete help manual (350+ pages PDF) with basic color theory and detailed equations. In Windows, stand-alone "HTML Help" is also available. All help documents contain thousands of hyperlinks, for easy navigation, and a complete index. You can use and keep these manuals even if you do not buy the program!Color translation and comparison
1. For RGB spaces, input data in RGB, L*a*b*, L*u*v*, or pick a color in the "xy" chromaticity diagram.
2. 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).
3. Select amongst twenty RGB spaces and one custom space. Pre-defined spaces include Adobe (1998), Apple RGB, CIE RGB, ColorMatch, eciRGB_v2, ProPhoto, and sRGB.
4. 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-595, and RAL CLASSIC.
5. 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.
6. Compare and convert coordinates between two RGB spaces, two color decks, or a RGB space and a deck.
7. Get color coordinates in eleven different representations and variants (HSB, Hex #, L*a*b*, L*C*h*, Munsell HVC, etc.).
8. 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).
9. 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.
10. See the individual numerical contributions of DeltaL*, DeltaC*, and DeltaH* to the total DeltaE difference, as well as Delta h*.
11. Identify clipped coordinates (out of gamut) when converting colors to a RGB space.Spectral tools:
1. Supported instruments: GretagMacbeth Eye-One Pro spectrometer (all versions).2. Supported instruments measuring modes: reflectance, emission, and ambient and flash illumination (when available for a given model).3. Density tools: Reflection Density, Dot Area, Print Contrast, Apparent Trap, Hue error, Grayness, Saturation. The ideal tool to measure your prints Dmax!4. Metamerism tools: Hunter Metamerism Index (MI), Special Metamerism Index (SMI), CIECAT02 Color Inconstancy Index (CII), and a virtual light booth; two ambient spectrums, either measured or loaded from a file can be assigned as lluminants. Measured ambient spectrums can also be exported as CGATS compliant files.5. RAL tool: get the RAL DESIGN coordinates of a color patch.6. 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.7. 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 ISO 23603 / CIE S 012). Print a well-formatted one-page report which contains information dedicated to compliance reports. You can also load an ambient spectrum from a file instead of measuring it with an Eye-One.8. Whiteness tools: Measure the whiteness, the brightness, the fluorescence, and the opacity of white papers. Check the compliance of white and black backings. Important: Fluorescence measurements require a thin, transparent, UV filter, which is not provided, and an Eye-One which is NOT UV-Cut. The other measurements require compliant white or black backings, which are also not provided. You can use the default UV filter spectrum, load a filter spectrum from a file, or measure your own filter and assigned it as the software default.9. Export a spreadsheet savvy text report for the Density, MI, Graph, ISO 3664+, and Whiteness tools. The Graph and Whiteness files are also CGATS compliant and can be opened by many color-management software, including BabelColor's PatchTool.When connected to an Eye-One Pro (from X-Rite), you get these strong spectral tools: a full-featured densitometer; a RAL DESIGN converter tool; a unique set of Metamerism analysis tools to evaluate the constancy (i.e. shift) of colors under various lights, including two of your own lights; ambient illumination (ex.: light booths) and monitor evaluation tools based on ISO 3664, with the possibility of printing a single page report for compliance assessment; a multi-purpose graph tool where two inputs in any measurement mode (Emission, Ambient, Flash, or Reflectance) can be compared; and a set of tools to measure paper whiteness, brightness, fluorescence, and opacity, as well as measure white and black backings compliance.
