VOC Based End-Point Criteria for Lightfastness of Hardcopy Prints
  DOI :  10.2352/ISSN.2169-4451.2003.19.1.art00095_1  Published OnlineJanuary 2003

Historically printlife of hardcopy output prints has been based on endpoint criteria relative to changes in density (loss of density). In the past few years attempts have been made to establish acceptable colorimetric endpoints. These metrics have been based on Delta E or some variation of delta E. This presentation will discuss a psychophysical study conducted to determine objective metrics in a perceptually uniform color space. The study will also look at the capability of existing metrics to determine their validity. Primary and Secondary color tonescales as well as neutrals and memory colors (flesh, sky, foliage, and others) were used to identify tolerances around variations of these colors. Subjective response to 16 scenes from 12 output systems at various degrees of degradation were correlated to objective metrics determined using CIE2000 color difference formulae.
