Reverse Calibration to Guess the Original Illuminant Presented by Taesu at CIC27

Taesu Kim, a Ph.D. student of color lab, gave an oral presentation entitled as, “Illuminant Estimation Through Reverse Calibration of an Auto White-Balanced Image That Contains Displays” at CIC27 in Paris. He proposed reverse algorithm to estimate original illuminants from automatically calibrated digital images. In particular, he used the color of smartphone display as a calibration…

Kyeong ah Jeong presented her recent study, entitled as “Styling of Refrigerator Lighting by Altering its Chromaticity and Placement”, at IASDR2019, Manchester, UK. The study proposed the optimal lighting condition to elicit certain design style in refrigerator by manipulating lighting chromaticity and placement. Based on the assessments, four aspects were derived as for describing the…

An IASDR, the largest biannual international conference of design was hosted by Manchester University of Arts this year. Color lab presented three original research articles, organized a design workshop, and chaired one session.

During the IASDR2019 living session, Juhee Kim, a master student of Color lab presented her recent study on the effect of nuanced white lighting on the affective judgment of fabric styles. In her study, six types of fabric were observed under eight types of nuanced white lighting. After her succinct presentation, valuable comments were given by the…
