Summary

The aim of this chapter is to present selected issues of colorimetry and color science with relevance to the evaluation and optimization of future and emerging self-luminous visual technologies (particularly LED displays) as well as light emitting diode (LED)-based indoor light sources. The chapter first deals with flexible displays, laser displays, and LED displays. Special attention is focused on color gamut extension algorithms and the temperature dependence of wide-gamut LED displays. Then, it describes the potential of applying emerging light sources, especially LED illuminants for indoor applications focusing on tunable LED lamps for accent lighting, the co-optimization of brightness and circadian rhythm, the possibilities of the accentuation of different aspects of color quality, and the use of new phosphor blends. The chapter also describes the implications of the mechanisms of human color constancy for the spectral design of novel light sources.
