A psychophysical experiment is performed on two large-size liquid crystal displays under three viewing conditions to assess perceptual contrast. Based on the visual data, the performance of CIECAM02 in predicting perceptual contrast under different viewing conditions is tested and compared with other models by F-test. Results show that the perceptual contrast models in the form of Weber contrast using CIECAM02 brightness Q agreed better with the contrast perception of human visual system compared to the models using luminance, CIELAB lightness L¤, and CIECAM02 lightness J.
