Various recent studies have shown that observer variability can be a significant issue in modern display colorimetry, since narrow-band primaries are often used to achieve wider color gamuts. As far as industrial applications are concerned, past works on various aspects of observer variability and metamerism have mostly focused on cross-media color matching, an application context that is different from color matching on two displays, both in terms of human visual performance and the application requirements. In this paper, we report a set of three preliminary color matching experiments using a studio Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) display with broadband primaries, and a modern wide-color gamut Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) with narrow-band primaries, with and without surround. Two principal goals of these pilot tests are to validate the experimental protocol, and to obtain a first set of metameric data of display color matches under different viewing conditions. In this paper, various experimental design considerations leading to the current test setup are discussed, and the results from the pilot tests are presented. We confirm the validity of our test setup, and show that the average color matches predicted by the 1964 CIE 10° standard observer, although acceptable as average matches, can often be significantly and unacceptably different from individual observer color matches. The mean, maximum and the 90th percentile values of the standard observer-predicted color difference of individual observer color matches were 1.4, 3.3 and 2.6 ΔE*00 respectively.

More about this publication?
  • Started in 2002 and merged with the Color and Imaging Conference (CIC) in 2014, CGIV covered a wide range of topics related to colour and visual information, including color science, computational color, color in computer graphics, color reproduction, volor vision/psychophysics, color image quality, color image processing, and multispectral color science. Drawing papers from researchers, scientists, and engineers worldwide, DGIV offered attendees a unique experience to share with colleagues in industry and academic, and on national and international standards committees. Held every year in Europe, DGIV papers were more academic in their focus and had high student participation rates.
