Abstract

Small suprathreshold color differences around five CIE color centers were investigated on a typical liquid crystal display (LCD) with fluorescent backlight using the method of constant stimuli. The results were evaluated using probit analysis and compared with surface-color differences of the RIT-DuPont dataset. We focused especially on the relationship between T50 distances obtained from LCD and surface-color stimuli and on the influence of the display’s narrowband primaries and its relatively low luminance level on interobserver uncertainty. The low luminance level of the LCD decreases the perceived color differences. However, considering the visual uncertainty of the experimental data, we could not reject the hypothesis that T50 distances from the RIT-DuPont and our experiment agree up to a constant scaling factor. In addition, we found significantly higher interobserver variability in the estimation of small color differences if the colors are viewed on an LCD. There are some indications that color-difference perception might be influenced by individual color-matching functions and, thus, by the spectral power distribution of the stimuli. We provide the experimental data, including all spectral stimuli shown to the observers, on our website.
