Paper Abstract

A visual method for characterizing cathode ray tube (CRT) displays and finding corresponding colors is presented. The method is motivated by the considerable expense of measuring instruments and the consideration of color appearance factors. In the experiment, a set of color chips in the natural color system (NCS) color atlas, an illuminant, and a CRT are used. 487 sample pairs of RGB (CRT) and HVC, which are the attributes of NCS color chips, are obtained by experimentally comparing softcopies and hardcopies in the office environment in the sense of best color matching to nine observers. Both the spectral data of the color chips and the colorimetric values of the CRT samples are measured. In addition, 12 error back-propagation (BP) neural networks are trained to help the realization of the transformation from HVC to RGB for data generalization. The current results show that the displays on the CRT can match the chips in color perception well.
