In connection with the color adaptation property of the human visual system, we have explored color management of a reflective-type TFT LCD(R-LCD). Since the R-LCD works together with its ambient light as a light source, it is expected that the colorimetric color on the R-LCD must be changed if the illuminant of the ambient light is changed. However, due to the adaptation property of the human visual system, the eye does not perceive colorimetrically-corrected colors equivalently if they are on the R-LCD. In this paper, we discuss results obtained from subjective experiments, which were initiated in order to understand the perceived color differences according to light source changes. Also we show how these properties of the human visual system can be modeled and calibrated in a color management unit of a personal computer(PC), which is applicable to the R-LCD in practical usage condition.
