Color Space Profile

A color space profile (CSP) defines a color space. Colors are defined in terms directly related to spectral response. A CSP does not depend on the behavior of a particular color device. CSPs contain information about assumed viewing conditions in the data expressed for that color space. Typically, the color space can be relative to CIEXYZ values, defined by the Commission Internationale de l'Eclairage (CIE). The equivalent ICC term for color space profile is color space conversion profile. (See Table 2-1.)
