Neugebauer's Colorimetric Quality Factor for a simple additive color reproduction system is calculated for 17 detector response functions. Each response function is used to simulate the reproduction of 124 colors and 774 metameric grays. The mean color difference between original and reproduced colors is calculated for colors and metamers for each detector response. The relationship between mean color difference and colorimetric Quality factor is studied.
