Paper Abstract

Designers of color displays have no simple means to relate suprathreshold color contrast to performance because few of the requisite experiments have been conducted. One of the obstacles has been the absence of a standardized and uniform method for representing color differences. A series of experiments was performed to explore and compare several candidate metrics. The results suggest that there may be no single metric which will be optimal for all applications. Further work will be needed to delineate the limitations of those considered thus far and to determine whether a single standard is feasible.
