Abstract

Accurate scanning of a color image, which is absolutely essential for good color reproduction, can ensure that all relevant information about the color stimulus of a signal is obtained. The set of scanning filters is hence an important component of a color reproduction system. In this paper we introduce a measure of the goodness of a set of color-scanning filters. This measure relates the space spanned by the scanning filters to the human visual subspace. The q factor of a single color-scanning filter is shown to be a particular case of the measure. Experimental results are presented to justify the appropriateness of the measure.
