EGM COLOR CHART
Created for EGM by Hugo Rodríguez, and originally intended to calibrate high-resolution scanners, the IT8 color chart can now also be used with digital cameras in different formats such as JPEG, TIFF or RAW. Not in vain, a digital camera is still a scanner that reproduces what is projected.
IT8 Color Chart creates a color profile for the scanner, the digital camera or screens and monitors, which allows to achieve a very high color fidelity since, of course, the main objective is to get "exact" copies of reality.
Today's digital cameras have endless incredible properties and performance possibilities, but if at all they are at a disadvantage compared to old high-quality scanning media it is in color control. That is why today professionals of the sector and diverse institutions use this IT8 Chart as a reference, given their fidelity in the processes of capture of light and color.
Within the parts defined by the standard there are:
- CMYK primary colors
- RGB primary colors
The use of the EGM Color Chart IT8 can not be interpreted as a "photo retouch" but as the treatment of color with great precision obtained using the profiles of the Chart.
EGM, in its obsession to reflect and reproduce the reality of images as faithfully as possible, created this Color Chart in 1993 and has now become a reference in the sector.
