Spectral Sharpening: What is it and why is it important?

XYZ functions and cone sensitivities appear to play little role in visual perception in that colour computation does not appear to be carried out in cone or XYZ coordinates. In its first incarnation, spectral sharpening was proposed as a method for finding the color space, a linear combination of the cones, that best supported adaptation by a von Kries type model. The term sharpening is used because the resultant sensitivities have narrower support compared with the cones. In this paper we show that spectral sharpening also helps us to understand metamerism and color matching.

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.
