preferred reproduction model

mathematical model that produces transformations which are applied to scene- or original-referred image data to produce image data describing a pleasing reproduction

Note 1 to entry: Preferred reproduction models are different from other reproduction models in that the pleasing reproduction need not be an attempt to reproduce the appearance of the original. In fact, what is considered pleasing can depend on viewer preferences. The transformations produced by a preferred reproduction model are generally dependent on the characteristics of the scene or original and the output medium.

Note 2 to entry: This entry was numbered 17-974 in CIE S 017:2011.
