Absolute colorimetric remapping

Colors that fall within the gamuts of both input and output device are left unchanged. Colors that fall outside the gamut of the output device are clipped to a color on the edge of the output gamut. This may lead to a loss of detail in some regions. Over most of the tonal range, a close match is obtained. This method is suited for spot colors.

Figure 1. Absolute colorimetric remapping clips colors outside of the gamut to a color on the gamut boundary (B). Colors which cannot be displayed in the target color gamut will be lost.
