The Norwegian Colour and Visual Computing Laboratory (Colourlab) is an internationally renowned research center devoted to colour imaging and related topics. The Colourlab is a base for extensive R&D activities, ranging from fundamental colour science to applied colour imaging technology, within the Faculty of Computer Science and Media Technology at University College in Gjøvik. It has a very strong track record in national and international research projects funded for instance by The Research Council of Norway (RCN), as well as with projects for industry. Lately our participation in the EU-funded
CREATE network, the CIMET and COSI Erasmus Mundus master programs, and the coordination of a large Marie Curie ITN project called ‘Colour Printing 7.0: Next generation multichannel printing’ is notable. Over the past few years, the Colourlab has organized several international colour imaging symposia with international delegates and contributors in attendance.
The lab possesses excellent laboratory facilities and extensive equipment for colour image acquisition and reproduction, image quality evaluation, color measurement, and color management (e.g. viewing booths, spectrophotometers, spectroradiometer, multispectral imaging systems, monochromator systems, scientific camera systems, eye tracking equipment).
