The rapid growth in color-imaging technology, has led to the fast development of color-management systems. Such systems require color appearance models to allow images originating in one medium and viewed in a particular environment to be acceptably reproduced in a second medium and viewed under different conditions. The aim of this paper is to find out the influence of background lightness on image perception (simultaneous contrast). The two most commonly used media: CRT-display (soft copy) and printed images (hard copy) and six complex images were included in this research. Experiment includes observers who performed color matching between soft and hard copies under different simultaneous contrast conditions.
