Abstract

Recent work in color difference has led to the recommendation of CIEDE2000 for use as an industrial color difference equation. While CIEDE2000 was designed for predicting the visual difference for large isolated patches, it is often desired to determine the perceived difference of color images. The CIE TC8-02 has been formed to examine these differences. This paper presents an overview of spatial filtering combined with CIEDE2000, to assist TC8-02 in the evaluation and implementation of an image color difference metric. Based on the S-CIELAB spatial extension, the objective is to provide a single reference for researchers desiring to utilize this technique. A general overview of how S-CIELAB functions, as well as a comparison between spatial domain and frequency domain filtering is provided. A reference comparison between three CIE recommended color difference formulae is also provided. © 2003 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
