It is known that preferred tone reproduction is affected by color appearance phenomena. Therefore a preferred tone reproduction curve can be obtained if using a color appearance model that can predict color appearance phenomena accurately. Many color appearance models have been proposed, and the latest color appearance model is CIECAM02 that CIE published in 2004. The CIECAM02 model takes into account Stevens effect, but CIECAM97s, the base model of CIECAM02, does not deal with high levels of illumination such as sunlit conditions. Then, we examined whether the CIECAM02 model could give a tone reproduction curve similar to the preferred tone reproduction curve of conventional photography or not. As a result, it was found that the CIECAM02 model could not be used to predict preferred tone reproduction curves. In addition, we measured tone reproduction curves of two typical imaging systems, DSCs (Digital Still Cameras) and displays, and DSCs and printers. Comparison of the obtained curves with those from the CIECAM02 model showed that they considerably differed in shape.

  • For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.

    Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
