A scanner characterization method is proposed to estimate spectral reflectance from scanner responses by using an optimized adaptive estimation method. In contrast to our previous study [ J. Opt. Soc. Am. A 21, 1125 (2004) ], this method considers the weighting of training samples. It is demonstrated that the color accuracy of this method is only slightly affected by the number of training samples and can provide more accurate reflectance estimation.
