Abstract

The strip comparison method, based on the serial exploration method described by Torgerson [Theory and Methods of Scaling; Wiley & Sons (1958); Chap. 7], for the development of near-threshold color difference models was presented and validated with theoretical data by the authors in a previous work. In this study, we investigate parametric effects derived from the use of the strip comparison method on chromaticity-discrimination ellipses around the red CIE color center. The results obtained led to the conclusion that the strip comparison method has little effect on the parameters of the chromaticity-discrimination ellipses determined by the pair comparison method when pairs of patches in the strips are separated by a black line 0.5 mm thick or are separated by 3 mm spacing on a white background and also correlates well with the parameters reported by other authors using the pair comparison method at the threshold.

Fig. 2. Proposed strips for red CIE (L*=44, a*=37, b*=23) color center along vector direction #1 (ΔL*=0, Δa*=-2.8, Δb*=-2.8) and vector direction #6 (ΔL*=0, Δa*=2.8, Δb*=-2.8) for three types of separation between pairs of patches: no separation (no sep.), black line 0.5 mm thick (b05) and separated 3 mm under white background (w3). Note: the authors cannot guarantee that the colorimetric values observed in the figure correspond to those used in the experiment due to the impossibility of controlling the color management workflows involved when readers are observing the figure displayed or printed in their own devices.
