COLOR CALIBRATION OF AN ACQUISITION DEVICE - Method, Quality and Results

V. Vurpillot, A. Legrand, A. Tremeau

Abstract

Color calibrated acquisition is of strategic importance when high quality imaging is required, such as for work of art imaging. The aim of calibration is to correct raw acquired image for the various acquisition device signal deformation, such as noise, lighting uniformity, white balance and color deformation, due, for a great part, to camera spectral sensitivities. We first present reference color data computation obtained from camera’s spectral sensitivities and reflectance of reference patches, taken form Gretag MacBeth Color Chart DC. Then we give a color calibration method based on linear regression. We finally evaluate the quality of applied calibration and present some resulting calibrated images.
