Avian Technologies, in partnership with Mt. Baker Research, has developed a complete line of ceramic color transfer standards. These tiles are more fully described here, or download this PDF for a complete description, including spectral reflectance data. Mt. Baker Research has performed other analyses, including a detailed gamut analysis comparing our new tiles with the BCRA series and a few other color standards. All standards are mounted in Delrin holders, 2″ (52 mm) square.
The chart at right shows the color distribution (CIELAB b* vs a*) of the three Avian tiles sets in comparison to the chromatic BCRA tiles. Many of the Avian tiles extend and complete the available gamut of colors.
In general, this more complete coverage of color space improves results for many applications such device profiling, and instrument characterization and evaluation.
