Paper Abstract

Recently, chromatic-response function with uniform scales are obtained as logarithms of proper cone activation ratios (CAR hypothesis) and can be considered as Cartesian coordinates for equiluminant-color palettes. Particularly, a properly combined choice of the 'fundamental' primaries, that are at the basis of these functions, and of the RGB primaries of the display give equiluminant-chromatic 'rectangular' palettes, that with the Weberian-lightness define a color space with good scale uniformity and suitable for the color-signal coding. All the transformations are logarithmic. The couple of 'fundamental' primaries laying on the alychne and a third one of pure luminance are considered for trichromatic cameras.
