Open Access Evaluation of Sparkle Impression Considering Observation Distance

The sparkle impression is an important factor of appearance quality. The impression is generated by reflection from a material surface that contains metallic or pearl pigments. Although several methods of evaluating the impression have been proposed, there is insufficient correlation between the results of these methods and subjective evaluation because the impression depends on the observation distance. The present study developed a method of evaluating the sparkle impression considering the observation distance. To this end, a subjective evaluation experiment was performed for different observation distances and a measurement system comprising a spectral camera and lighting device was constructed. The evaluation model was proposed on the basis of the spatial frequency characteristics of the recorded image and human visual characteristics. The contribution ratio between subjective evaluation scores and evaluation values was high.

  • For more than 30 years, the Electronic Imaging Symposium has been serving those in the broad community - from academia and industry - who work on imaging science and digital technologies. The breadth of the Symposium covers the entire imaging science ecosystem, from capture (sensors, camera) through image processing (image quality, color and appearance) to how we and our surrogate machines see and interpret images. Applications covered include augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, machine vision, data analysis, digital and mobile photography, security, virtual reality, and human vision. IS&T began sole sponsorship of the meeting in 2016. All papers presented at EIs 20+ conferences are open access.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
