Abstract

Developed over two decades at the Technical University, Budapest, the Coloroid color system is an aesthetically uniform system, in which scales of hue, saturation, and lightness appear to change uniformly over their entire length, when viewed as a whole. This is not the same as perceptually uniform in the sense of even intervals of small color differences. This article discusses the concepts and derivation of the Coloroid system, relates it to the Munsell and Ostwald systems, and derives the relations of its coordinates to those of the CIE XYZ system.
