Internship: Perceptually linear color calibration for wide-gamut displays

Barco designs technology that makes everyday life a little better. Seeing beyond the image, we develop sight, sound, and sharing solutions to help you work together, share insights, and wow audiences. Our focus is on three core markets: Enterprise (from meeting and control rooms to corporate spaces), Healthcare (from the radiology department to the operating room), and Entertainment (from movie theaters to live events and attractions). With a team of over 3,300 employees, located all around the globe, we realized sales of 770.01 million euro in 2020. 

Background of Barco Healthcare

 

Barco develops high-precision medical display systems to bring enhanced visualization and diagnosis across the healthcare enterprise, including radiology, mammography, surgery, pathology, clinical review imaging and dentistry. Barco's full line of color and grayscale diagnostic displays, display controllers and softcopy Quality Assurance (QA) tools facilitate confident diagnoses while guaranteeing perfect image quality over time and across displays. Next to this Barco is also an important player in the Digital Operating Room market with the Barco NEXXIS platform, a unique image management solution that builds on the IP network to ensure complete integration of all devices in and beyond the operating room.

 

Goal & Description of the project

 

In the past, Barco has been particularly active in finding the best way to distinguish subtle details in colored medical images. This is very important in the case of quantitative imaging, for which the colors represent numerical values (tissue densities, level of cellular activity, doses of radiation, etc.) that a doctor must be able to interpret as easily as possible. To this end, Barco had developed a method of calibrating its monitors which improved the perceptual uniformity of the gamut. Today, academic knowledge having gained ground, it is time to define a new method more suited to new technological standards.

As an intern, your job will be to help define, but also implement a screen color calibration method making use of the latest knowledge in color perception. This calibration method must take into account the specificities related to HDR and WCG technologies.
