HyPerCept - Color and Quality in higher dimensions

Supporting Gjøvik University College's strategy of strengthening a few excellent research groups, the present project proposal builds on the internationally renowned research at the Norwegian Colour and Visual Computing Laboratory, and broadens its scope into new application areas of huge societal importance, such as universal design, 3d multimedia, health technology, and information security. As indicated by its title, HyPerCept - Color and quality in higher dimensions, the core concepts of the project are color and quality, both complex perceptual attributes that are currently not fully understood, which we will investigate in dimensions beyond what is common, both concerning the attributes themselves and their domain of application.

The project is divided into four sub-programs (SPs)

  1. Improved image quality for the visually impaired
  2. Imaging technology for health, security, and art:  Functional image quality
  3. Color and quality in imaging devices – value creation in the imaging industry
  4. Image quality in higher temporal and spatial dimensions
