The International Color Consortium (ICC) is a consortium of vendors and individuals for the purpose of creating, promoting and encouraging the standardization and evolution of an open, vendor-neutral, cross-platform color management system architecture and components. Founded in 1993 during a meeting in Palo Alto, CA. Original members were from eight industry vendors: Adobe Systems , Agfa, Apple, Kodak, Taligent, Microsoft, Sun Microsystems, and Silicon Graphics.
The intent of the International Color Consortium profile format is to provide a cross-platform device profile format. Device profiles can be used to translate color data created on one device into another device's native color space.
In December 2005 the ICC Specification became an ISO standard: ISO 15076-1:2005 (Image technology colour management — Architecture, profile format and data structure — Part 1:Based on ICC.1:2004-10). The ISO standardization was the result of cooperation between the ICC and Technical Committee 130 (Graphic Technology) of ISO.
