A new approach, in which several color scales are used, has been investigated. The approach has some advantages in comparison with a simple linear transformation. First advantage is an independent control of color hue. Next is an accurate color reproduction of neutral gray scale. Last is an independent control of color steps. These advantages are useful to design various kinds of color calibration and color management systems.
