Term: Tone Reproduction Curve (TRC)

Generally considered to be synonymous with Tone Transfer Function. Technically, a single function that describes an object energy-to-displayed energy (i.e., reproduction") transformation. An OECF is technically not a tone reproduction curve as much as it is a tone encoding curve.
