The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has led to the sustained closure of many research laboratories. Many vision and colour researchers have therefore pivoted to running psychophysical and psychological experiments remotely, i.e. via internet platforms or at home. One of the challenges for these endeavours is that displays will be largely uncalibrated, as laboratory-grade instruments are typically not available. In this webinar, we will explore principles of monitor calibration, and what methods might be used to get aspects of visual displays calibrated in the absence of a laboratory-grade spectrometer or photometer.

Invited talk:

  • Principles of color calibration of displays presented by Tom Lianza, Portrait Displays

Contributed talks:

  • Navigating the world of online experimentation: in theory and practice presented by Dejan Draschkow, University of Oxford, and Marian Sauter, Bundeswehr University Munich
  • Remote2020: Remote (but connected) psychophysics over the web presented by Daniel Coates, University of Houston
  • Visual display calibration based on psychophysical judgements presented by Sophie Wuerger, University of Liverpool
  • Methods for calibrating a display without a photometer presented by Jeff Mulligan, NASA Ames Research Center
  • Human- vs colorimeter-in-the-loop: Considering observer metamerism in online display calibration presented by Hao Xie, Rochester Institute of Technology
  • A review of perceptual calibration methods for online experiments with visual stimuli presented by Allie Hexley, University of Oxford

Who should attend? Any researchers currently collecting, or planning to collect, data on human vision and visual perception on the internet or 'at home'.

This webinar is organized by the OSA Color Technical Group and the OSA Display Technology Technical Group.
