Judgements of colour harmony were made by observers, including some with normal colour vision and some with a colour vision deficiency. A set of colour pairs applied to food colourings was rated on a 1-10 scale of harmony, in two different locations, Norway and Taiwan. The results indicate that the harmoniousness of the colour pairs was rated slightly lower by the colour-deficient observers, but that other factors - the type of food object and the different nationalities of the observers - had a greater effect. It was also found that the results of showing deuteranope simulations of the colour pairs to normal observers did not agree with judgements made by those observers with an actual colour vision deficiency.

  • 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.
