Summary

This chapter explains the components of display characterization models in general and for specific types of displays. It first deals with the general description of the components of display characterization models, that is, tone curves and phosphor matrices, certain artifacts that can be partially removed by appropriate characterization models, and the method of applying color appearance models to displays. Then, the chapter describes specific characterization models and visual artifacts of specific display technologies including cathode ray tube (CRT), plasma display panel (PDP), liquid crystal display (LCD), and projectors. Further, it introduces the different projector and display backlighting light sources together with their color filters. Finally, the chapter describes the above-mentioned color size effect, that is, the change of color appearance between standard size and large color stimuli.

Controlled Vocabulary Terms
