Research and Markets: Illumination, Colour and Imaging - Wiley Series in Display Technology

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of John Wiley and Sons Ltd's new book "Illumination, Colour and Imaging. Wiley Series in Display Technology" to their offering.

This much needed, comprehensive and modern reference on display technology, illumination sources and color imaging focuses on visual effects and how reproduced images are best matched to human visual features.

As such, it teaches readers how to exploit the knowledge of human color information processing to design usable, ergonomic, and pleasing displays or visual environments. The contents describe design principles and methods to optimize self-luminous visual technologies for the human user, including modern still and motion image displays, and indoor light sources. Design principles and methods are derived from the knowledge of the human visual system, with a special emphasis on color vision, color cognition, color harmony, color preference and visually evoked emotions. The expert authors include the most important and latest applications of the design principles and methods, forming a comprehensive view of human color information processing from the receptors through the retina via high-level visual perception right up to the level of cognition, preference, harmony, as well as visually evoked emotions.

Key Topics Covered:

1 Colour vision and self-luminous visual technologies

2 Colorimetric and colour appearance based characterization of displays

3 Ergonomic, memory based and preference based enhancement of colour displays

4 Colour management and image optimization for digital TV and digital cinema

5 Pixel architectures for displays of three and multiple colour primaries

6 Improving the colour quality of indoor light sources

7 Emerging visual technologies
