A simple idea of RGB to spectral image conversion is proposed. A spectral reflectance with the closest colorimetric value to that of RGB pixel is picked up from the spectral color palette and embedded in each pixel of RGB image. SVD (Singular Value Decomposition) is applied to compress the high-resolution spectral image.

Spectral image data are rearranged to 36 pixels × 36 spectra sub-block so that we could make use of strong correlations in both spatial and spectral. The spectral image could be very well reproduced from a small number of singular values by SVD. Although a transformed image has not the real world spectra but palette-based pseudo-spectra, the proposed method could be applied to simulate the color appearances for a given set of ink and paper media under the different illuminants, and to estimate how much the huge spectral image data could be compressed. The paper discusses the color reproducibility by SVD compression and introduces the estimated color appearances for inkjet prints under the different fluorescent lamps.

  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
