The increasing popularity of digital cameras has made saving photos on computers, viewing them on monitors, printing them on printers, and sending them over networks commonplace activities not only among professionals but also average users.
A big problem however, is the difference in the color reproduction range of each device, which makes it difficult to match the original image on a display or when printing it. The solution is a color management system (CMS) that effectively match color information among various devices.
Canon's Kyuanos CMS technology realizes enhanced compatibility between input and output devices in the area of color management, enabling automatic, highly accurate color matching. Some features of Kyuanos were also introduced as part of Windows Vista, released in January 2007 by Microsoft Corporation. Read on to find out how Kyuanos was born.
