Research on Application of iCAM in Printing Image Reproduction


Article Preview

The properties of iCAM appearance model including the viewing conditions calculation, chroma adaptation transformation, IPT properties computation and perception correlation calculation was studied according to the researches studied in the paper. iCAM color appearance model was proposed as the PCS in this paper and the effects on printing image reproduction and evaluation were studied. The conclusions showed that setting iCAM as the PCS had an important role in improving color conversion accuracy and the high fidelity reproduction quality of printing image.
