    Color Management


    ARRICUBE Color Management System
    As an open designed system, ARRI uses the well-established ICC (International Color Consortium) standard for the Color Management. The main idea of the ICC standard is to profile each device of the chain separately. The profile is used to transform the colors into a common color space, overlapping all possible color gamuts.The advantage of this common space is that it reflects the color and luminance sensation of the human eye as accurately as possible, different color gamuts can be matched. ARRI offers the Color Management for the ARRILASER and also works together with industry partners in the color-grading field.
