Recent developments in spectral imaging are pointing toward a future where the demands on color management will require a richer infrastructure than that which is currently offered. ICC color management includes a stage where all colors are transformed to and from XYZ-based colorspaces. This colorimetric bottleneck is acceptable within a metameric or Maxwellian approach to color reproduction, but severely undermines the advantages of spectral imaging. Spectralizer, a spectral image visualization tool, has been implemented to provide a platform where spectral images may be easily displayed, manipulated, analyzed and processed. It has proven to be useful in investigating algorithms and prototype datastructures for performing the management of color within a spectral imaging environment.
