A technique was developed and tested for generating CRT image reproductions that matched the color-appearance of print originals. Five observers matched two scenes using a memory matching technique. Observers were able to produce accurate matches when originals and reproductions were viewed at the same white point. Observers matched the reproduction at 6500K to originals viewed at 9300K and at 3000K. These matches were compared to the predictions of various color appearance models using a paired-comparison technique in a second psychophysical experiment. The observermatched images were found to be equal or superior to all predictions of the models tested.
