CIE D8 publications A Colour Appearance Model for Colour Management Systems: CIECAM02 by TC8-01 CIE 159:2004 Chromatic Adaptation Under Mixed Illumination Condition When Comparing Softcopy and Hardcopy Images by TC8-04 CIE 162:2004 Criteria for the Evaluation of Extended-Gamut Colour Encodings by TC8-05 CIE 168:2005 Guidelines for the Evaluation of Gamut Mapping Algorithms by TC8-03 CIE 156:2004 The Effects of Fluorescence in the Characterization of Imaging Media by R8-05 CIE 163:2004
CIE 159:2004 A Colour Appearance Model for Colour Management Systems: CIECAM02 by TC8-01 A colour appearance model provides a viewing condition specific method for transforming tristimulus values to and/or from perceptual attribute correlates. This document outlines a specific colour appearance model, CIECAM02, which may be useful for colour management applications. This model is based on CIECAM97s colour appearance model and consists of a chromatic adaptation transform and equations for computing a set of perceptual attribute correlates. The evolution and application of this colour appearance model are presented.
CIE 162:2004 Chromatic Adaptation Under Mixed Illumination Condition When Comparing Softcopy and Hardcopy Images by TC8-04 Users often desire to compare hardcopy and softcopy images using rapid successive binocular observations. The focus of this report is to determine how colour imaging experts can best accommodate the desires and practices of these more casual observers. It shows that accounting for mixed and incomplete chromatic adaptation produces more accurate results in colour appearance than not accounting for them. It includes a mathematical model for chromatic adaptation and provides appropriate parameters for the chromatic adaptation model under such viewing conditions.
CIE 168:2005 Criteria for the Evaluation of Extended- Gamut Colour Encodings by TC8-05 One set of applications that was identified by the committee required the use of extended-gamut colour encodings. This document defines a set of objective metrics for evaluating the characteristics of output-referred extended-gamut colour encodings. Detailed metrics have been developed to evaluate a number of important attributes of extended-gamut colour encodings.
CIE 168:2005 Criteria for the Evaluation of Extended- Gamut Colour Encodings by TC8-05 These criteria include: gamut volume characteristics, gamut volume characteristics, colour quantization characteristics, colour quantization characteristics, hue constancy when applying non-linear tone scale modifications to RGB colour values, hue constancy when applying non-linear tone scale modifications to RGB colour values, complexity of transformation required to and from typical standard spaces (sRGB, ICC PCS, etc.). complexity of transformation required to and from typical standard spaces (sRGB, ICC PCS, etc.).
CIE 168:2005 Criteria for the Evaluation of Extended- Gamut Colour Encodings by TC8-05 The relative importance of the individual metrics will vary on an application-by-application basis. As a result, the committee concluded that the actual evaluation of candidate colour encodings for use in particular applications should be left to other standards bodies that are more closely aligned with the relevant industry segments, and therefore would be better able to define the appropriate application-dependent requirements.
CIE 163:2004 The Effects of Fluorescence in the Characterization of Imaging Media by R8-05 The addition of fluorescence to either the inks or the substrate greatly increases the level of uncertainty in instrumental readings of the optical properties of printed images. CIE "Intercomparison on measurement of (total) spectral radiance factor of luminescent specimens" shows that even research and standards laboratories experience a degradation in their reproducibility of up to one order of magnitude (10x), in the readings of total spectral radiance factor of strongly coloured, fluorescent materials.
CIE 163:2004 The Effects of Fluorescence in the Characterization of Imaging Media by R8-05 This report contains results from a study of the measurement of total spectral radiance factor of digital halftone printing over a range of substrates exhibiting various levels of fluorescence. Colorimetric properties were computed for CIE Illuminant D50 when the UV component was included and when the UV component was excluded from the measurement source. The results indicate and quantify that the fluorescence of the substrate can be measured in both solid ink areas and halftone ink area with the effect being far larger in the latter.
CIE 163:2004 The Effects of Fluorescence in the Characterization of Imaging Media by R8-05 The magnitude of the CIELAB colour differences indicate that a significant lack of reproducibility may be experienced between two imaging centers who attempt to apply colour management principles to their individual measurements of the same image printed on fluorescent substrates or between two laboratories who attempt to quantify the colour differences between images printed on fluorescent stock and measured using instruments with different sources.
CIE 163:2004 The Effects of Fluorescence in the Characterization of Imaging Media by R8-05 The preliminary reports of CIE TC 1-44 "Practical daylight simulators for colorimetry" have shown that significant variability exists among instruments claiming daylight simulations and an even greater difference between instruments with UV-rich pulsed xenon lamps and those with UV-poor incandescent lamps.
