Determination of Adapted White Points for Various Viewing Environments
  DOI :  10.2352/CIC.1999.7.1.art00020  Published OnlineJanuary 1999

Adapted white points were visually determined for four environments using a CRT-based, neutral-point selection, psychophysical method called MIND. Three of the environments simulated the common viewing condition of a CRT illuminated by an overhead source. The chromaticity and luminance of the monitor and its ambient illumination were varied. The fourth environment was a CRT monitor viewed in a dark surround and was used as the null case. For the sRGB environment, the adapted white point was found to be similar to D65. For all environments empirical AWP's are given. A model is proposed for predicting AWP in mixed-mode viewing environments based directly on monitor and ambient illumination influences. The authors describe the next steps in testing this model with images.
