xyz2double

Convert XYZ color values to double

Syntax

xyxd = xyz2double(XYZ)

Description

xyxd = xyz2double(XYZ) converts an M-by-3 or M-by-N-by-3 array of XYZ color values to double. xyzd has the same size as XYZ.

The Image Processing Toolbox™ software follows the convention that double-precision XYZ arrays contain 1931 CIE XYZ values. XYZ arrays that are uint16 follow the convention in the ICC profile specification (ICC.1:2001-4, www.color.org) for representing XYZ values as unsigned 16-bit integers. There is no standard representation of XYZ values as unsigned 8-bit integers. The ICC encoding convention is illustrated by this table.

Class Support

xyz is a uint16 or double array that must be real and nonsparse. xyzd is of class double.
