Exploring the applicability of the CAM18sl brightness prediction
Journal Contribution - Journal Article
Recently, a color appearance model, CAM18sl, has been published. The model can predict the color perception (hue, colorfulness, brightness) of self-luminous stimuli seen against neutral backgrounds varying in luminance. In this paper, the applicability of CAM18sl to situations different from the one for which it was originally developed is explored. The brightness perception predicted by this model (expressed in "bright") is compared with the outcome of the CIE Unified Glare Rating (UGR) for luminaires, the limiting luminance values for Variable Message Signs as indicated in the European standard for outdoor situations, the visual gloss (VG) formula to characterize the gloss of objects, the CIE grey-scale calculation for self-luminous devices, and the predicted brightness value of illuminated objects according to CIECAM02. Although the application domains mentioned above are very distinct, it appears that the predicted brightness perception of the CAM18sl model correlates well with the outcome of the particular and dedicated metrics. It seems that, for brightness perception, CAM18sl can be considered as a general model applicable for a wide range of applications. This could lead to a reduction of a number of application-specific metrics.
