Chromaticity limits in color constancy calculations

There are two very different kinds of color constancy. One kind studies the ability of humans to be insensitive to the spectral composition of scene illumination. The second studies computer vision techniques for calculating the surface reflectances of objects in variable illumination. Camera-measured chromaticity has been used as a tool in computer vision scene analysis. This paper measures the ColorChecker test target in uniform illumination to verify the accuracy of scene capture. We identify the limitations of sRGB camera standards, the dynamic range limits of RAW scene captures, and the presence of camera veiling glare in areas darker than middle gray. Measurements of scene radiances and chromaticities with spot meters are much more accurate than camera capture due to scene-dependent veiling glare. Camera capture data must be verified by calibration.

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.
