Open Access Paper: An improved optimization method for finding a color filter to make a camera more colorimetric

Recently, an iterative optimization method was proposed that determines the spectral transmittance of a color filter which, when placed in front of a camera, makes the camera more colorimetric [1]. However, the performance of this method depends strongly on the filter (guess) that initializes the optimization. In this paper, we develop a simple extension to the optimization where we systematically sample the set of possible initial filters and for each initialization solve for the best refinement.

Experiments demonstrate that improving the initialization step can result in the effective ‘camera+filter’ imaging system being much more colorimetric. Moreover, the filters we design are smoother than previously reported (which makes them easier to manufacture).

  • 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.
