Improving the Perceptual Uniformity of a Gloss Space

The perceptual gloss space defined in Pellacini et al. [9] could be used for quality control applications to bring similar benefits as seen in color with the use of CIELAB. However, a distance metric to relate all the dimensions in the space does not exist, and the space was only validated with the materials used to define the space.

The current space's distance metric does not allow relating differences in lightness to the other dimensions: contrast gloss and distinctness of image gloss. The lightness perception uniformity of the space was first evaluated in a psychophysical study, where the observers' lightness discrimination was found to decrease as lightness increased. A function was derived to model the lightness perception observed and it was included into the distance metric of the space.

The space uniformity around sixteen positions in the gloss space was evaluated in a second psychophysical study to assess the overall space uniformity. The space was found to be perceptually non-uniform outside the samples used when the space was created. Also, an improved gloss difference equation that takes into account the non-uniformity of the space is presented, showing a statistical significant improvement over the current gloss difference equation of the space and reducing the STRESS value from 39.76 to 22.96.

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.
