Paper Abstract

More information can be displayed for human visual interpretation with a full color presentation than with a monochrome (black and white) presentation. However, image analysis systems have not been able to utilize color to the extent that should be possible. This paper presents reasons and application examples showing why the traditional RGB additive color approach has been ineffective. A system which overcomes the limitations of RGB, and which utilizes the fundamental human perception parameters of intensity, hue and saturation is described.
