Dear Matthieu: You should modify CIEXYZ formulas like below: X = SUMPRODUCT( "CubicSplineTransformedData" ; "StandartObserverx" ) * 5 * .683002 Y = SUMPRODUCT( "CubicSplineTransformedData" ; "StandartObservery" ) * 5 * .683002 Z = SUMPRODUCT( "CubicSplineTransformedData" ; "StandartObserverZ" ) * 5 * .683002 The number 683 is connected to the modern (1979) definition of the candela <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Candela> , the unit of luminous intensity <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luminous_intensity> .

I'm still not able to get the same results as Argyll. Here is how I did the measurement and calculation: 1. Measured with colormunki ang Argyll using -H option for high definition spectral measurement (from 350nm to 750nm every 3,33nm) 2. Used cubic spline to transform the spectral datas from 380nm to 730nm every 5nm 3. Picked up the 5nm CIE 2° standart observer. 4 Calculated the XYZ using the following formulas on Excel: X = SUMPRODUCT( "CubicSplineTransformedData" ; "StandartObserverx" ) * 5 Y = SUMPRODUCT( "CubicSplineTransformedData" ; "StandartObservery" ) * 5 Z = SUMPRODUCT( "CubicSplineTransformedData" ; "StandartObserverZ" ) * 5 I'm getting: X = 63,5 Y = 67,66 Z = 69,36 While Argyll gives me: X = 43,37 Y = 46,21 Z = 47,37 What am I doing wrong? I attached spectral graphic file on how cubic spline perform and standart observer used (normalise at 555nm). I fear once I answered this question, I might have a few more on phototometric (Lux and Guide number calculation) and radiometric (Joule calcultation) to ask....... Thank you by advance, Matthieu DUBAIL www.presse-bouton.com
