Abstract:

The recent proliferation of color displays has accentuated the need for a metric of color contrast which can be used to predict human operator performance. To obtain the data for forming a metric of color contrast, one needs the capability of presenting a broad range of colors in varying geometric arrangements. This report describes an approach to developing the capability to display colors of known chromaticity using a color digital image processing system. This report covers the development of measurement technique and software used in characterizing the display system, the reduction of spectroradiometric data, the use of color mixing equations for color digital image processing systems, and the development of display system software.
