Which color system is the best?

A loaded question with not one answer!

Color control has historically been done by visual inspection of samples and comparison to a standard with the disadvantages of being subjective. For more objectivity, the internationally agreed upon CIELAB system is used since 1976. Meanwhile, several modifications of the CIELAB color equation like DECMC, DE 94, DE2000 were introduced. The goal of the modifications was to improve the correlation between visual perception and instrumentally measured values. In the seminar, you will find out the strong and weak points of the different color equations with typical applications.
