Radiant Imaging is offering a free software utility, Color Calculator 1.0, that performs a variety of colorimetric and photometric calculations and conversions. The calculator provides a simple means to plot data points on a CIE chromaticity chart (standards set by the International Commission on Illumination, abbreviated as CIE from its French title, Commission Internationale de l'Eclairage). It can be used to calculate the color difference between two points on the CIE chart and to graph spectral power distribution for a source; it also transforms data between various color models, such as CIE xy, uv and u'v', and converts most common illuminance and luminance units. The software also includes mathematical definitions for photometric quantities such as luminance, illuminance, luminous flux and luminous intensity. Color Calculator 1.0 is compatible with Windows 98/XP/NT/2000. It is available for download at www.radiantimaging.com. For a CD copy, call (425) 844-0152.
