CT&A

CT&A (Color Translator & Analyzer) is a collection of tools specifically designed for the measurement, conversion, and analysis of individual colors or small batches of colors (depending on the tool). Tools are grouped by theme in individually managed windows; these windows are controlled with a menu or toolbar. Note: The RGB vs RGB, Munsell, CRI, ISO 3664+, Metamerism Index, and RAL DESIGN tools do not require a color measurement instrument although an instrument can be used for input. The Density, FluoCheck, Graph, and Whiteness tools only accept an input from an instrument. Instruments are purchased separately; a list of supported instrument is shown in the specifications page.

Features highlights

Here are examples of specialized features supported in CT&A or PatchTool. Dithered color patches Using PatchTool Export dialog, you can generate an 8 bit target image with dithered pixel colors. You obtain images with essentially 16 bit accuracy in a 8 bit workflow. Munsell Color System support This color system is supported in many BabelColor software tools: CT&A bidirectional converter tools. CT&A RGB vs RGB tool. Munsell digital color catalogue in the CT&A RGB vs RGB Color Decks. Convert and export color lists to Munsell notation with PatchTool. Density measurements In combination with the i1Pro series of spectrophotometers from X-Rite, a full set of density tools are available in CT&A. Basic density measurements are also available with PatchTool. The M0, M1, M2, and M3 Measurement Conditions are supported as permitted by the instrument. CIE 170 cone fundamental Observers PatchTool supports the 2 deg. and 10 deg. CIE 170 cone fundamentals. Import and export tristimulus data. Export MacLeod- Boynton chromaticity coordinates. Convert XYZ to spectral data With PatchTool, convert tristimulus data to spectral data optimized for one or two Illuminants. OSA-UCS support Generate color lists and import or export Optical Society of America Uniform Color Scale (OSA-UCS) coordinates with PatchTool. Extract a target from an image Get the RGB, CMYK, or L*a*b* coordinates of color patches in the image of a target and compare them to reference values, all within PatchTool. Create custom RGB space ICC profiles In CT&A, define a Custom RGB space by selecting its primaries, its White Point, and its gamma function (simple or detailed). Export as a matrix ICC profile.
