xyz2uint16

Convert XYZ color values to uint16

Syntax

xyz16 = xyz2uint16(xyz)

Description

xyz16 = xyz2uint16(xyz) converts an M-by-3 or M-by-N-by-3 array of XYZ color values to uint16. xyz16 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.
