Paper Abstract

In the telemedicine application through visual communication systems, the reproduction of color is quite important. The purpose of this work is to develop a method for the reproduction of the natural color of the object in the TV system for telemedicine. When the illumination of observation environment is different form the object illumination, the change in color perception is caused by the color adaptation of human vision. In the method presented in this paper, the difference of illumination condition is corrected by using multispectral information captured by a multispectral camera. This paper shows the methods and the basic results for the reproduction of two types of color; the reproduction of color image as if the object is directly observed, and the reproduction of color appeared when the object is placed under the observation condition.
