Spectral calculator (JavaScript)  |  Russian original
v.17.3.24 Input spectral data 340-830 nm, step from 1 nm; input XYZ or Lab or LCh
Output XYZ, Lab, LCh, Dens, DotGain, TVI, Trapping, relative contrast

Entering data from a CGATS or CxF text file

The calculator takes the files * .txt, * .cxf * .ti3 and no larger than 2 megabytes. Files can contain both spectral and colorimetric (XYZ, Lab, LCh) data for the calculation of chromatic adaptation and TVI. Proper design CGATS data can be viewed by clicking the button with the examples below, or by reference.

Input Spectral or XYZ (Lab, LCh) CGATS Data & Spectral CxF3:

Additional features and advanced settings
Force change the dimension of the spectrum:
Force change the type of spectrum (reflection/emission):
it is important
for emission
The number of columns in the visualization table:

Reference Range of colors in the chart:  
TVI and tolerances ±4 of the chart:  
The range of the vertical Y-axis values on the charts DotGain and TVI:
The values of the vertical Y-axis on the graph of local contrasts:

Conversion between the spectral filters:
Colorimetric color coordinate transformation with respect to the new white point (paper), or ISO 12647-2: 2013, tristimulus correction method: 
  (how it works)
LCh min: L C h
LCh max: L C h
Filter by:   
and when sorted by hue separate neutral area Chroma values from 0 to:
Sort data by two parameters:
with reference White D50 and CAT02 adaptation
for neutral gray
