DeltaE:Targets

From deltaE
Jump to: navigation, search

Multiple types of test-targets or calibration targets are supported. Some are for transparencies, while most are opaque. They come in different shapes, sizes and versions (even within a target model), and have various purposes.

Currently Supported Targets

The following table contains the target models that are currently supported in DeltaE. This means that they can be dynamically localized/detected, read-out/analyzed and compared to their reference values and the guideline of choice. Targets should at all times be correctly orientated, as straight as possible. Targets that are placed sideways or too slanted will be rejected. For more information on the correct placement see How to Place my Target.

New target support added: the cutting edge Near Neutral (to be named) test target by Don Williams from ISa (see table).


Future Delta-E Target Support

More Target types or versions can easily be added in the future. Currently, we have implemented most main-stream digital image targets, and some legacy versions like the color control patches that are today rarely used. In the comming time we will implement the whole range of Golden Thread products, and implement the IT8 target as well, for our feature roadmap see The Deltae Roadmap.
