There are two primary reasons that color imaging does not 'work' today. The first is that there are no broad standards that can be applied across technologies and between applications. The second is that many standards groups do not consider what is known of color and vision science as they make standards. CIE Division 8 was created to address both these problems. The plan of work and progress to date of each of the technical committees (TCs) within Division 8 are described, along with a brief description how of the TC's work will help 'make color work.'
