Abstract
While wide color gamut (WCG) capabilities are a key element of emerging display and projection technologies, at present most image content is recorded using standards such as DCI-P3 for cinema or BT.709 for TV that have a reduced color gamut. Therefore, there is a need for gamut extension methods that process regular content and allow to appreciate the full color potential of new displays, improving user experience. We present a gamut extension algorithm that is based on visual perception models and explicitly takes into account low chromatic colors such as skin tones. It produces results that look natural, are free of artifacts of any kind, and outperform the state of the art. The method is fast, allowing for operation interaction if needed.
