Introduction

    Color plays a vital role in the delivery of the visual information. However, people who suffer from the color vision deficiency (CVD) are unable to distinguish certain color combinations. In this project, we focus on reproducing videos for CVD viewers. A simple idea is to re-color every frame individually by using certain existed image based methods. In this way, the same color appearing in different frames cannot be guaranteed to be remapped to the identical new color, because the temporal relationship between frames is not considered. The colors of an object may become different in adjacent frames. Thus, temporal color consistency (TCC) should be considered when reproducing a video for dichromats, i.e. the same color appearing in different frames is re-colored to an identical new color. Experimental results show that our method can effectively increase the visibility for CVD viewers and guarantee temporal color consistency.
