A color transmission approach between a computer display and a color computer-generated holography (CCGH) colorimetric system is proposed based on color matching theory. Firstly, the conversion between color quantities of a computer display and a CCGH colorimetric system is discussed based on color matching theory. Secondly, the isochromatic transfer relationship of color quantity and amplitude of the object light field is proposed. Thirdly, the color object light field was encoded into a hologram, and then the hologram was reconstructed numerically. The simulation results demonstrate that our novel approach is feasible.
