Determine ICC output profile (name) in PDF/X output intent

Feb 10, 2012 2:10 AM

Hi all,


I have a PDF of which I need to determine the ICC output profile (name) of the PDF/X output intent. This is what I have in the 'content stream':


<</Metadata 6 0 R/OutputIntents[<</DestOutputProfile 7 0 R/Info(OFCOM. ISO 12647-2:2004 / Amd 1, Offset commercial and specialty printing according to ISO 12647-2, paper type 1 or 2 \(gloss or matte coated offset, 115 g/m2\), screen frequency 60/cm.)/OutputConditionIdentifier(FOGRA39)/RegistryName(>>]


How can I, based on this information, determine what the name of the ICC profile in the PDF/X output intent is? Adobe Acrobat's output preview tells me that is should say / find ''ISO Coated v2 300% (ECI)'.


Thanks in advance.

    You would need to extract the ICC profile data stream and then parse it according to the file format for ICC profiles.

    You can use the Acrobat SDK to extract the data from the stream.  Then I recommend SampleICC, the open source reference implementation from the ICC itself, for reading the profile.
