Abstract

Two uniform patches presented on two displays under identical viewing conditions can appear as the same color to one observer but as mismatched colors to another observer. This phenomenon, called observer metamerism (OM), occurs due to individual differences in color matching functions. To avoid its potentially adverse impacts in display calibration and characterization, it is desirable to have a predictive model of OM. In this work, we report the computational results of how to use existing metrics to quantify the potential OM between commercial display pairs and a proposed OM metric that is verified through a psychophysical experiment.
