Abstract
I am sure that everyone would agree that the standards that define colorimetric measurements (ISO 13655) and viewing conditions (ISO 3664)for graphic arts and photography, and ICC profile building (ISO 15076-1) must all be consistent with each other. More importantly we would all agree that together they must be consistent with current industry practice and be technically sound. However, as we begin the process of revising the color measurement and viewing standards we find that that is easier said than done. In each of these areas there seem to be a series of inconsistencies between what we do and what we say we should do. The real riddle is how do we reconcile them with each other, with industry practice, and also keep them technically sound. This paper looks at some of the issues, identifies the conflicts, and identifies some of the potential compromise positions. It also describes the steps that are being taken to develop revised versions of the key standards involved.
