    I have a question is that how PDF file use a Special and Embedded ICC Profile, just like my Heidelberg SM-102's Icc Profile, then the Customer open the PDF file, they can automatic preview use this ICC Profile?

    You must embed your ICC profile for this purpose.

    Your image has been converted to SM102 via Photoshop or something else, OR your image is in RGB with your RGB's profile attached. Therefore, you just have to import your image with InDesign, and create a PDF/X where in Output tab, choose: your SM102's profile.
    In this scenario, you, depending your PDF/X flavor, you will get a good result. (still in RGB with on the fly convertion in Acrobat with your output intent) or directly in CMYK (PDF/X1a)

    You can provide your SM102 profile to your customer if you want he can simulate the rendering on your press... but usually, the best way is to ask them to provide file with respect of ISO standards (ISO Coated2 for instance) and YOU, do something to match this standard : ISOCoatedv2 to SM102.

    Hope that helps

    I think this ICC profile is embedded in the pdf file so the customer will look normal, but to output an output device, the ICC profile must have the this device

    Make your PDF a PDF/X4 with your SM102 set as the output intent, and Acrobat/Reader should show the colours properly. It even switches on overprint preview automatically.

    @fratidav:
    there is a different, where the ICC-profile is embedded.
    In a PDF/X it MUST be embedded as output-intent.
    In a PDF without PDF/X-validation the objects CAN be tagged with an ICC-profile.

    I prefer the old-school, where RGB-objects are tagged correct with an profile and CMYK-objects are not tagged with an profile because the output-intent is enough to characterize the printing-condition.
