Achieving color constancy is an important step to support visual tasks. In general, a linear transformation using a 3 × 3 illuminant modeling matrix is applied in the RGB color space of a camera to achieve color balance. Most of the studies for color constancy adopt this linear model, but the relationship of illumination and the camera spectral sensitivity (CSS) is only partially understood. Therefore, in this paper, we analyze linear combination of the illumination spectrum and the CSS using hyperspectral data that have much more information than RGB. After estimating the illumination correction matrix we elucidate the accuracy dependence on illumination spectrum and the camera sensor response, which can be applied to CSS.

  • 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.
