Standardization work

The Norwegian Colour and Visual Computing Laboratory is heavily involved in standardization work. 

CIE TC1-82: Calculation of colour matching functions as a function of age and field size

The Technical Commitee (TC) should recommend a procedure for calculating XYZ-like colour matching functions from cone fundamentals, as a function of age and field size. The work will be based on the new  2- og 10-degree standard that are under development by TC1-36. In addition a software to calculate the color matching functions will be developed. The TC is lead by Jan Henrik Wold, a former member of the Colorlab, and the committee consists of I. Farup, C. F. Andersen, M. Brill, M. Fairchild, H. Fairman,C. Lee, K. Richter, F. Viénot, M. Withouck, and Y. Yamauchi.

CIE Division 8: Image technology

Division 8 on image technology is to study procedures and prepare guides and standards for the optical, visual and metrological aspects of the communication, processing, and reproduction of images, using all types of analogue and digital imaging devices, storage media, and imaging media. Member from the Norwegian Colour and Visual Computing Laboratory is Jon Yngve Hardeberg. 

CIE TC8-07: Multispectral imaging

To study, develop and recommend encoding techniques and data formats for the exchange of multispectral images, and to provide test procedures for the evaluation of multispectral imaging systems. Member from the Norwegian Colour and Visual Computing Laboratory is Jon Yngve Hardeberg. 

ISO TC-130: Graphic technology

The scope of TC-130 is standardization of terminology, test methods and specifications in the field of printing and graphic technology from the original provided to finished products. The scope includes in particular: composition, reproduction, printing processes, finishing (for example binding), suitability of inks, substrates and other materials used in graphic technology. Member from the Norwegian Colour and Visual Computing Laboratory is Peter Nussbaum. 

ICC honorary member 

Gjøvik University College (GUC) was made an honorary member of the International Color Consortium (ICC, http://www.color.org) at the Steeering Committee meeting on 7 January 2011. This recognises the work being done by the Norwegian Colour and Visual Computing Laboratory at GUC to the field of colour management, and the contribution which ICC believes the Colorlab can make to its work of standardising the ICC profile format and making colour seamless between devices and documents.
