A 'consistent colour appearance' is hard to achieve between different substrates or display systems. A chromatic adaptation transform or substrate adjustment strategy is typically used, but for this present paper a dynamically scaled ICC Media Relative transform was utilised. A soft-proofing system with a method of adjustment was used, allowing simultaneous viewing and adjustment of a reproduction colour image relative to a reference on different simulated substrates under P2 viewing conditions. The degree of adjustment was found to be highly correlated to the image content's lightness and to lesser extent its chromaticity, and was not consistent with the complete adaptation assumed by a media-relative rendering. Other aspects of the experimental setup, including accuracy, observer strategies, and the application of soft proofing for media relative adjustments are discussed.
