Metamerism and Multi-Primary Displays

The media in our eyes yellow with age, causing us to make different color matches as we get older. For multi-primary displays that push the gamut limits to colors that previously could not be rendered, metamerism can result: Screen colors that match in theory may not match to you, the viewer. To satisfy an aging customer population, manufacturers must minimize this problem. Here is how it can be done.

Beyond the Locus of Pure Spectral Color and the Promise of High-Dynamic-Range Display Technology

In emerging media technologies, particularly High-Dynamic-Range (HDR) displays, much more is possible in achieving brighter and more-vibrant colors and a richer visual experience that may even transcend what we see every day. Here is how it works.

Color is closely related to the light spectrum. Nevertheless, spectral properties are seldom discussed in the context of color displays. Here, a novel concept for a display for color-critical applications - which is designed to reproduce the light spectrum rather than just color - is presented.
