Multispectral imaging, which extends the number of imaging channels beyond the conventional three, has demonstrated to be beneficial for a wide range of applications. Its ability of acquiring images beyond the visible range and applicability in many different application domains lead to the design and the development of a number of multispectral imaging technologies and systems. Given different systems to choose from, it is important to be able to compare them in a general and in many situations specific to a certain application of interest. In this paper, we evaluate several conventional and recently proposed multispectral imaging systems, both qualitatively and quantitatively. Both spectral and colorimetric accuracies are used as the criteria in the quantitative evaluation. The systems are evaluated and compared for two specific applications: imaging of natural scenes and paintings (cultural heritage), as well as for a general spectral imaging solution. This work provides a framework for the evaluation and comparison of different multispectral imaging systems, which we believe, would be very helpful in identifying the most appropriate technique or system for a given application.

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.
