The problem of metamerism arises when two objects with similar color appearance appear to be different in different sources of light and similar in one light source. For instance, pants with the black color which appear to be a similar shade of black in showrooms lights appear dark blue and grayish black under sunlight. This phenomenon occurs mainly due to the difference in the sample pigments and color formulation.
Because of the issue of metamerism, attaining consistent and accurate color of products can be a challenging task for the manufacturers, especially for those whose products are assembled using various parts that are supplied by various manufacturers where each of them has their own way of adding formulation. Any mismatch in the colors will not only generate unnecessary rectification cost but also affects the acceptance and buying behavior of the customers as well. To prevent these issues, it is important to measure the color of the objects to measure the metamerism.
Instruments such as color viewing booth that are equipped with a variety of illuminants to identify metamerism. Color viewing booth offers high-quality of lights that help to identify the products in different shades of light and to exactly determine that how the colors of the objects are different from others. Objects are considered usually metameric when their spectral curves intersect with each other minimum three times.
