  1. Color chart

    In color-related fields, a color chart is a flat, physical object colored with an arrangement of standardized color samples, used for color comparisons and measurements such as checking the color reproduction of an imaging system. Color charts are used to calibrate and/or profile digital input devices such as digital cameras, and scanners and output display systems like printers, monitors and projectors. They are also used by traditional photographers and cinematographers to calibrate cameras that use film and to check the color temperature of the lighting. Therefore, standardized IT8 targets are made by several companies including, FujiFilm, Kodak, LaserSoft Imaging. Color charts can also be used to assess light quality, as in the color rendering index, where reflectance from a set of Munsell samples are evaluated.
