Part of the Computational Imaging and Vision book series (CIVI, volume 32)


In the paper we address the problem of evaluation of colour reproduction accuracy in vision systems. The method of such evaluation with use of the newest CIE colour difference formulas (CIE94, CIEDE200) has been proposed. The advantages of the sRGB colour space in colour reproduction on the background of device-dependent RGB colour space are presented. The impact of method of image compression (file format) is also discussed.
