BabelColor 2.0 translator
The BabelColor has released the second version of its color comparator and translator software. ($65), available for Mac OS 9/X, simultaneously displays color data and color patches from two RGB (Red-Green-Blue) spaces selected from 19--up from 13 in the previous version--pre-defined spaces, such as ProPhoto, eciRGB, Adobe (1998), and sRGB. Version 2.0 also adds two color decks to this selection: the first one simulating the chips found in the FED-STD-595B standard, and the second one showing chips disposed at fixed color intervals according to the Munsell HVC notation. It allows users to easily translate color coordinates back and forth between any RGB space or color deck.
