We investigated the effect of viewing conditions on human visual perception of colorfulness and constructed a mathematical model for colorfulness by fitting regression curves to LUTCHI color appearance data. This model enables the simple and effective prediction of the relative appearance attribute of colorfulness as a function of brightness and saturation, taking into account a range of viewing conditions, and hence provides a method of image reproduction for home display systems that can be easily adapted according to indoor viewing conditions.
