This paper discusses the implementation of a ICC Color Management workflow within the post production scenario in the motion picture industry. Beside other image quality aspects like contrast ratio and sharpness the color reproduction plays a very important role. The main aim is to preview the cinema screen on class 1 video studio monitors. For this purpose, the ICC Color Management has been implemented in the motion picture environment. Within a labarotory setup, scanner, display and printer profiles were created. Furthermore, methods were established to accommodate the differences between the ICC specifications and the motion picture workflow. In addition, new white scaling algorithms were selected and tested. While the average delta E's were decreased significantly by the ICC color management, improvements are still required for some special color regions.
