The researcher edited the whole volume and authored one chapter.
As the range and capabilities of digital colour displays, printers and digital cameras have increased during the past decade, so too has the availability of more sophisticated and accurate colour measuring instruments. The work of the CIE and national standards laboratories has been crucial in establishing reference standards and calibration procedures. But many issues remain to be resolved, not least the development of a fully comprehensive model of colour appearance, including spatial and temporal parameters, and how to make it work well for practical systems. New challenges for colour image science have emerged as cross-media image reproduction is applied in other colour imaging domains outside the graphic arts, including Internet and multimedia displays, motion pictures, digital television and augmented-reality.
This book was a companion volume to the previous text Colour Imaging: Vision and Technology (John Wiley 1999). An interdisciplinary approach was taken, combining aspects of human vision with image capture, processing and reproduction. The premise was that colour image science would develop primarily through research directed to a deeper understanding of human colour vision and perception in all its aspects – spectral, spatial and temporal. Only through the application of colour image science would digital media achieve their full potential in the reproduction of images that are both good-looking and effective.
The twenty chapters of the book were arranged in five parts on colour vision, multispectral imaging, image processing, gamut mapping, and image quality. They were all original articles, solicited from authors of international significance. All chapters were peer reviewed by anonymous reviewers.
A specific research contribution within the book is Chapter 14, “A Topographic Gamut Mapping Algorithm”, which summarises the author’s development of a novel image processing algorithm and its evaluation in two different experiments.
