In this paper we investigate the impact of colorimetric observer categories on the prediction of the average suprathreshold color difference perception. The observer categories were obtained from an observer classification experiment, while the color difference data were obtained from an experiment involving a liquid crystal display (LCD) with fluorescent backlight. The same observer panel with normal color vision participated in both experiments. Results obtained from the observer classification experiment were consistent with the average observer threshold for color difference judgment. This analysis demonstrates that the observer categories, determined based on individual differences in cone spectral sensitivities (and thus color matching functions), have an influence on the prediction of average suprathreshold color difference perception for a given observer population.

More about this publication?
  • CIC is the premier annual technical gathering for scientists, technologists, and engineers working in the areas of color science and systems, and their application to color imaging. Participants represent disciplines ranging from psychophysics, optical physics, image processing, color science to graphic arts, systems engineering, and hardware and software development. While a broad mix of professional interests is the hallmark of these conferences, the focus is color. CICs traditionally offer two days of short courses followed by three days of technical sessions that include three keynotes, an evening lecture, a vibrant interactive (poster) papers session, and workshops. An endearing symbol of the meeting is the Cactus Award, given each year to the author(s) of the best interactive paper; there are also Best Paper and Best Student Paper awards.
