Fogra roses dataset The first three columns represent the CIELAB [D50/2°] values of the centre and the following three columns the CIELAB values of the neighborhood colour. The final 7th column represents the determined visual ("real") colour difference called "∆V". Those are the result of the paired comparison constant stimuli experiment and a threshold probability of p=0.75. 10.02.2021 xlsx 114 KB Download

An observer-metamerism sensitivity index for electronic displays Since narrow-band light-emitting diodes lead to larger color gamuts, more and more monitors with very narrow band primaries are coming onto the market without manufacturers taking into account the associated problem of observer variations. Being able to measure these variations accurately and efficiently is therefore an important objective. In this paper, we propose a new approach to predict the extent of observer metamerism for a particular multiprimary display. Unlike existing dedicated models, ours does not depend on a reference illuminant and a set of reflectance spectra and is computationally more efficient 22.02.2021 pdf 437 KB Download
