Description

Describes a transfer function for the image in tabular style.

Pixel components can be gamma-compensated, companded, non-uniformly quantized, or coded in some other way. The TransferFunction maps the pixel components from a non-linear BitsPerSample (e.g. 8-bit) form into a 16-bit linear form without a perceptible loss of accuracy.
