Lab Introduction

With the advances of color printers, color image displays, multimedia devices, and digital cameras, color image processing has been becoming the main spot of the image-processing research. Recently, many researches based on color image processing have been processed, and many interesting results have been reported concerning filtering, enhancement, restoration, compression, preservation, manipulation, and evaluation of color images. Among the above descriptions, main research areas of the Color & Imaging Lab. are color consistency between input and output devices, color image enhancement, and image quality assessment.
Specific research topics are focused on:
- Color Management System
- Display and Camera Characterization
- Color Reproduction for Human Vision System (Color Adaptation Model)
- Image and Display Quality Assessment
- Color Image Reproduction in Digital Cinema
- High Dynamic Range (HDR) Imaging
- Image Coding (JPEG, MPEG, and HEVC)
- Illumination-level Adaptive Color Reproduction Method
- Color Constancy
- Six-color Separation in Printing Devices
