New X Rite ColorTRUE Aware SDK to Help iOS and Android App Developers Deliver Accurate Color

X-Rite, Incorporated, a color management, measurement and communication technology company, has announced the release of the ColorTRUE Aware SDK for iOS and Android. 

The ColorTRUE Aware SDK provides mobile app developers the ability to deliver accurate color to their app utilizing the profile created with the X-Rite ColorTRUE app, as well as the included image transformation tools. 

Unlike laptop or desktop operating systems, iOS and Android operating systems do not have system wide color management capabilities. This means each app must apply color profiles independently. X-Rite’s new SDK allows app developers access to the custom profile created in the ColorTRUE app, enabling them to deliver color management within their own apps. 

The developer’s app must be promoted as ‘ColorTRUE Aware’ so all ColorTRUE users can quickly identify apps that are color managed whenever they see the ColorTRUE Aware logo.

The ColorTRUE Aware SDK includes the retrieval of the display profile, the CMM for color transformations, image processing features including white point selection, ambient light and display brightness compensation and print simulation for soft proofing. The SDK includes sample code, documentation and everything needed to implement color management in an app.  

An X-Rite measurement device (sold separately) is required for the ColorTRUE calibration process. iOS phones and tablets support ColorMunki Smile, ColorMunki Display, i1Display Pro, and i1Pro 2, while Android phones and tablets support ColorMunki Display and i1Display Pro.
