Abstract

The main objective of this study is to highlight the relationship between RGB values of digital camera as a device-dependent color space and a device-independent CIE color space. Calibration and testing databases are the colorimetric specifications of colored polyester fabrics. The colored fabrics were dyed with a variety of disperse dyestuffs. Camera characterization was done based on the polynomial regression technique. The methods adopted in the study were non-linear filtering applied to camera RGB values and a polynomial regression function directly applied to the CIELAB space.

The performances of the methods improved by increasing the number of terms in the polynomial. The estimation errors of the linear polynomial regression to CIEXYZ, the nonlinear polynomial regression to CIEXYZ, the linear polynomial regression to CIELAB, and the nonlinear polynomial regression to CIELAB were 3.29, 4.43, 3.05, and 3.04 DE*ab respectively. The generalization capability decreased by increasing the number of terms in the polynomial regression. The best generalization capability was obtained by the linear polynomial regression to CIELAB. The best result was obtained by non-linear filtering while the second-best result was obtained by the polynomial regression to the CIELAB values.
