The standardized residual sum of squares (STRESS) index was used to reevaluate four experimental datasets employed during the development of CIEDE2000, the current CIE recommended color-difference formula. This index enables statistical inferences not achievable by other metrics used commonly for performance evaluation. It was found that CIEDE2000 was(More)
We have analyzed the way in which simulated textures made of random dots influence visual suprathreshold color tolerances. We considered 32 textures created by a systematic variation of the following variables: size, number, and color of the dots. Each texture was mapped on the five centers recommended by the International Commission on Illumination (CIE)(More)
Threshold-discrimination ellipses were obtained by three normal observers, at five color centers, by the use of two experimental devices, which provided light-surface colors, and the same method and experimental conditions. The ellipses obtained for each center in both devices were quite similar when the sample distributions were appropriate and slightly(More)
The RIT–DuPont visual color-difference data as the RIT–DuPont data set, and they are the basis for [Color Res. Appl. 16, 297–316 (1991)] have been used our current analyses. to estimate contours of equal color-differences (ellipThe RIT–DuPont data set consists of 156 tolerances, soids) at 19 color centers, in CIELAB and x , y , Y /100 each of equal visual(More)
The CMC, BFD, and CIE94 color-difference formulas have been compared throughout their weighting functions to the CIELAB components DL*, DC*, DH*, and from their performance with respect to several wide datasets from old and recent literature. Predicting the magnitude of perceived color differences, a statistically significant improvement upon CIELAB should(More)
This work continues previous research by the same authors [J. Opt. Soc. Am. A23, 2077 (2006)], where empirical small-medium color differences were represented by an ellipsoidal equation DeltaEGP in the Uniform Color System of the Optical Society of America. Now logarithmic compressions on chroma and lightness are introduced to produce a new space with(More)
Using simulated data sets, we have analyzed some mathematical properties of different statistical measurements that have been employed in previous literature to test the performance of different color-difference formulas. Specifically, the properties of the combined index PF/3 (performance factor obtained as average of three terms), widely employed in(More)
We propose a new approach to the quantitative determination of the iris colour through the spectroradiometric measurement of a set of 72 artificial irises under controlled illumination and geometry. The spread of these samples in the CIELAB colour space indicates no clearly distinguished groups within the set analysed. Colour measurements for different(More)
CIELAB-based color-difference formulas are used to improve the prediction of visually perceived color differences through the introduction of various corrections to CIELAB. In our study we analyze the relative importance of these corrections. From the combined dataset employed for the development of CIEDE2000, we found that the improvement of CIE94 over(More)
We present a multispectral system developed and optimized for measurement of the spectral reflectance and the color of the human iris. We tested several sets of filters as acquisition channels, analyzed different reconstruction algorithms, and used different samples as training sets. The results obtained show that a conventional three-channel color camera(More)
