High-contrast sets of colors

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

A method is presented for choosing high-contrast sets of colors for additive color mixers (e.g., CRT). The method is based on data about target-location performance of human observers and adapts the color sets to the gamut of the color processor in use. The method produces any specified number of colors spread as far from each other as possible in color space to maximize contrast. Applications of high-contrast sets of colors are indicated, illustrative results are presented and discussed, and variations of the method are suggested.
