The scope and importance of colour image science has grown rapidly in recent years. In parallel with the proliferation of consumer imaging products, the capabilities of colour displays, printers and digital cameras increase. New challenges for colour image science are emerging as cross-media image reproduction is applied in Internet and multimedia displays, motion pictures, digital television and augmented-reality systems.
Colour Image Science takes an interdisciplinary approach, combining aspects of human vision with colour image capture, processing and reproduction:
* Colour Vision - How we see and remember colours
* Multispectral Imaging - Capturing and storing images in more than 3 channels
* Image Processing - Correcting image colours and accessing databasess
* Gamut Mapping - How to render colours in cross-media image reproduction
* Image Quality - Metrics and methods for assessing images
Colour Image Science will appeal to a wide readership, including scientists and engineers involved in the research and development of colour imaging products. It will also be a valuable reference text for post-graduate students in computer science, digital imaging and multimedia programmes.
