Content created in High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Wide Color Gamut (WCG) is becoming more ubiquitous, driving the need for reliable tools for evaluating the quality across the imaging ecosystem. One of the simplest techniques to measure the quality of any video system is to measure the color errors. The traditional color difference metrics such as ΔE00 and the newer HDR specific metrics such as ΔEZ and ΔEITP compute color difference on a pixel-by-pixel basis which do not account for the spatial effects (optical) and active processing (neural) done by the human visual system. In this work, we improve upon the per-pixel ΔEITP color difference metric by performing a spatial extension similar to what was done during the design of S-CIELAB. We quantified the performance using four standard evaluation procedures on four publicly available HDR and WCG image databases and found that the proposed metric results in a marked improvement with subjective scores over existing per-pixel color difference metrics.

  • 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.
