Argyll is an experimental, open source, ICC compatible color management
system. It supports accurate ICC profile creation for scanners, CMYK
printers, film recorders and calibration and profiling of displays.
Spectral sample data is supported, allowing a selection of illuminants
observer types, and paper fluorescent whitener additive compensation.
Profiles can also incorporate source specific gamut mappings for perceptual
and saturation intents. Gamut mapping and profile linking uses the CIECAM02
appearance model, a unique gamut mapping algorithm, and a wide selection of
rendering intents. It also includes code for the fastest portable 8 bit
raster color conversion engine available anywhere, as well as support for
fast, fully accurate 16 bit conversion. Device color gamuts can also be
viewed and compared using a VRML viewer.
