The allowance relates to additional claims involving the use of colour spaces and broadens the scope of applicability of Finline's use of vectors and scalars in its "Impress" image compression algorithm.
Andrew Zador, Vice President of Technology, and inventor of the Impress technology said: "This second patent allows us to use our Impress wavelet compression in a variety of colour spaces and media.
In this paper the sRGB colour space was observed and compared to CMYK coated and uncoated paper colour space.
Measurements in printing and colour space used in graphic technologies in the context of colour definition, as well as the tolerance between two colours, are defined by CIE L*a*b* colour space (Zjakir, 2007).
When this model is associated with a precise description of how the components are to be interpreted, the resulting set of colours is called colour space (Ganesan et al.
The larger the gamut, the larger is the colour space.
This conversion was necessary, as CIE L*a*b* colour space is designed to approximate human vision (Ganesan et al.
