22 December 1998 Using VRML to communicate device gamuts
Author Affiliations +
VRML or the Virtual Reality Markup Language offers a powerful tool for rendering and distributing device gamuts in a 3D format. This format is an open standard and is supported by multiple plug-ins for web browsers. The VRML format also allows interactive exploration of the gamuts, including unusual views such as the interior of the gamut. In addition, standard camera viewpoints can be used to view the gamut at a subset of useful fixed vantage points. This paper covers basic gamut rendering using VRML, including using a sufficient surface sampling rate. Some options to enhance the gamut rendering are also discussed and an example comparing three device gamuts is presented.
